Food Lion headquartered in Salisbury, NC was previously named Food Town before it was acquired by Del Haize. The Lion was their logo and the name of their supermarket chain in Belgium, I believe. The name was changed to influence the new parent company, and to allow the Salisbury, NC based chain to expand up north where there was another chain called Food Town at the time.

Food Town was founded in Salisbury, NC by Ralph Ketner and became successful back in the 80's as a low price leader, where their slogan was "LFPINC," for lowest food prices in NC. This successful low price strategy was later expanded into SC and Virginia before changing to Food Lion after the Del Haize acquisition. It will be interesting to see what strategy Ahold brings to the table going forward.

Ahold should not be a stranger in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina when they previously owned Bi-Lo. The Food Lion banner would have to raise and fulfill its standards of providing necessities, quality products and fresh foods with service and extra low prices to be on par with Giant Food Stores, Giant Food of Maryland, Hannaford, Martin's Food Markets, and Stop and Shop.

The nearest White Castle is in London, Kentucky. And this is one of the few areas where both a White Castle and a Krystal coexist in the same vicinity.

Also in London, Kentucky is the nearest Frisch's Big Boy. And up the road in Lexington, KY is the Skyline Chili and the Goldstar Chili, and a Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken. I believe they still have a Lee's in Rock Hill, SC.

Would be great to see a Roy Rogers and they are currently seeking franchise partners for expansion, including the Carolinas. But currently they are concentrating on Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey where new locations are opening.

I think White Castle may be a long shot, as the southeast is mainly Krystal territory. But as I mentioned, they do overlap in London, Kentucky.

Would also be great to see a Skyline Chili and a Big Boy, especially to fill the void from Shoney's. Which years ago was also a former Big Boy franchisee.
