First broadcast on "Capital Edition" July 7, 1987. Some years before that date I heard a story that Roy Rogers, as part of the deal to start a chain of fast food restaurants in his name, agreed with J. Willard Marriott to attend the "grand opening" of a restaurant or a few a year. They shook on it. No contract. Even though Marriott had died, and Roy was in his 70s, he still kept up his end. Pretty cool. I called Marriott's Corporate PR office and said, if Roy comes anywhere within a few hundred miles to open a restaurant, call me. A couple years went by...and I got the call. Frederick, Maryland. This video is the result. P.S. Most ironically, in the 1990s, after a series of sales, the Roy Rogers chain was on the verge of disappearing when a guy named Pete Plamondon, Sr, a one time Marriott executive and a Roy Rogers franchisee, bought the brand and began rebuilding it. There are now (2019) 50 restaurants from New York to Virginia. The ironic part: Mr Plamondon's company, now operated by his sons, is headquartered in... Frederick, MD and - that's right - he owned the Roy Rogers Restaurant where we met, interviewed and filmed, Roy Rogers in 1987. This seems to fall under the heading of - in a POSITIVE sense - what goes around, comes around. © 2019 Goldsmith Productions, LLC as to all content except motion picture clips which are in the public domain.
