Former (and cancelled) Restaurants list

This is a list of every former chain restaurant I can find in the state of Michigan (and beyond), as well as cancelled locations if I can find any. These sources come from various online forums, as well as phone books, bird's-eye views from Bing maps, personal recollections, archived store locators, directory listings, and anything else that I can possibly count as a source. As a result, the list is far from complete, and is always a work in progress. If you have found any that I've missed, or if you have corrections, send them to wachovia_138 at yahoo dot com.

If you're not sure of one, check this list for locations I've confirmed as not being formerly part of a chain.
