The Coldwater B-K Drive-In (now Short's) location has been around since 1959. It was operated by Lee H Witmyer from then until 1980 when it was sold. It was at that point I believe it changed to Allens. It is now Short's. It is a seasonal operation and is normally closed during the winter months. It is about a mile East of the Capri Drive-In Theater. The Short family also operates a small store on the chain of lakes. This B-K was originally at 24 Grand St. Today, that lot has a building on it that is a stone faced drive-thru for a bank. I have also added an article about B-K being taken over by Tastee-Freez International in 1983.
Update January 28 2023: I have added the B&K in Tecumseh on 1300 W Chicago Rd here to document that location also. In addition, I have added an ad for what I believe is the location in St. Joseph MI which would seem to be across the street from the Auto Theatre in St. Joseph. The ad indicates it was on the corner of Glenlord and US-12 which I assume is now Red Arrow Hwy. If I am wrong, please let me know.
Update May 28 2023 - David Hosticka (Owner of Dog n Suds in Montague and Muskegon): There was a B-K in Muskegon Michigan, on Laketon Ave near Getty Street. There was another one in Pentwater, on the main drag (its a small town).
