Trucks bring new Checkers building to Dothan


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — A entire new building arrived on the circle via delivery trucks Friday afternoon.

The old checkers building was demolished four weeks ago, but now a new restaurant has come to take its place.

The pre-built building arrived in the back of two trucks.

“We demoed the (old) building approximately a month ago, and now the new structure is coming in, and now we’re getting ready to set it on the foundation,” Project Manager Joey Pybus Southern Quest Construction.

Checkers is the only chain that uses this technique. It took around four hours for the building to arrive in Dothan from Birmingham.

The restaurant is expected to open in a couple of weeks. It’s located right next to Patricia Lanes.
