On I-95, there is a Burger King in Gardiner and two in Gray, a Ground Round in Augusta, and Popeye's Chicken and Sbarro Pizza in Kennebunk. A HoJo's in Wells on Route 1 burned down in the mid-80s. The last one standing is on Odlin Road in Bangor, one of only five in existence. Waitress Kathe Jewett has worked there since the restaurant opened in 1966.
