In the Delaware Valley of the 1960's there was one place to go to get finger lickin' good fried chicken. It was a hamburger chain named Gino's, which had the franchise rights to Colonel Sanders Kentucky Fried Chicken for that geographic area.
This is a colorized scan of an original 1960's ad which depicts what appears to be their Levittown Pennsylvania store (though there could have been others that looked just like that one).
Gino's folded in the 1970's and the region now has the same KFC outlets as the rest of the USA.
More recently a Philadelphia area firm has resurrected the Gino's name and reputation, opening a new (actually unrelated) series of burger joints with that name. How well they reproduce the food of the original, I could not tell you. My parents only bought me the chicken, which I ate in the back seat of our Edsel. They never bought burgers, fries, or milkshakes, which the new Gino's sells. But this ad is presented as nostalgia to the former children of Southern NJ and eastern Pennsylvania. We didn't go to McDonalds. We went to Gino's.
