Frisch's not only still exists, they're still putting up some new ones to follow the urban sprawl. But a sad milestone was reached the other day when their Tri-County location (opened in 1963) shut down.

Tri-County Frisch’s closed; another to open in Liberty Twp this summer | New in Town

If anyone knows the owners name or you have any pics please post them. I believe the owner was Kenny Collins. My mother worked at the downtown location with him and the night manager there was Harold. I would ask them but unfortunately they both have passed. Lisa K.

Whatever the vague answer was, it's long since been lost to time. (Maybe they didn't give away coloring/comic books to the kids? LOL) As best as I can recall, the Sixty Second Shoppe on Vine St held on until about 1966-67. Then Burger Chef opened around the corner on Compton (where a Penn Station sub shop is now.) Probably the three-man tag team of Burger Chef and Jeff, and Big Boy, was what knocked it out of the ring.
Actually, the were open until at least 1972...I knew someone who used to work there.

I certainly remember the Sixty Second Shoppe in Silverton. My then girlfrend, now wife of over 50 years and I attended a UC dance at the annex of Cincinnati Gardens. We just went there on our own. I spotted a couple of fraternity guys I knew and asked them if they would bring some soda back in a cup for my wife, since all they were really selling were setups. I should have known better. They came back with a large cup of ice all right. Unfortunately they had filled it with straight vodka.

A short time later she is saying Ken - I can't see. I take a look and remark You may see better if you open your eyes! Then it hit me she is drunk as a skunk. I did manage to get our coats from the cloakroom, while she stood with her back to the wall, banging her head against it. Somehow I managed to coax her across the street to the parking lot and into my car. Now what? I sure as Hell can't take her home in this condition.

So out to Silverton I drive and the Sixty Second Shoppe. I am not sure what time we arrived there, but it was still early. We stayed until they closed, pouring black coffee down her throat. Thankfully avoided any incidents out of control. While we were there I believe I had a couple of Big Sixties just out of a feeling of obligation.

There was a Sixty Second Shop on Madison Rd. in East Hyde Park but it couldn't compete with the Frisch's Mainliner about half a mile further east on Madison just past Ridge Ave.

Oakley location was best! As teenagers roaming the streets of Oakley
we went in to the Big Sixty on Madison Rd almost across from Oakley Grade school.

a dude name Baker was the late night cook and manager

My best friend Jerry Selhorst had a rough guy names Bob Bachor start a fight in there with him one time ..Jerry beat Bob up abd Baker just wanted everyone out of the place

Frank Robison outfielder for the Cincinnati Reds would bowl at Oakley Bowl and one night went in to Big Sixty's in Oakley and he and Baker got into a bad altercation with Frank being arrested

but we loved those Big Sixty's .The Eastern Hills Journal would have coupons "Two Big Sixty's "for a dollar yep we use those coupons !
Good Ole Oakley never forget those good times
just saying ..

Default Sixty Second Shop

There was a Sixty Second Shop in downtown Cincinnati between 7th and Garfield on Vine Street in the late '60's! It was real similar to Frisch's with no out door food areas!
