Krystal exodus from Chattanooga almost complete

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -- The Krystal Co., the feisty fast-food company founded in Chattanooga, has nearly completed its flight to the Peach State.

Though its red sign could remain on the Krystal building until December, almost all of the workers at the company's former headquarters will be gone by April, officials said. The accounting department and a few top executives will be the last to leave the Scenic City, as most of Krystal's top staff search for new homes — or new jobs.

"While the decision to relocate was a difficult one, we are already seeing results that show it is the best way to support our customers and team members," said Doug Pendergast, president and CEO of Krystal.

The formerly family-owned business was founded here in October 1932 by Rody Davenport and J. Glenn Sherill at a downtown diner on the corner of Seventh and Cherry streets. Six Krystals and a cup of coffee cost 35 cents then.
