Update 1-28-2023: 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.
This place has been around for many years, maybe even the 1950's. According to Tom at the Capri Drive-In, it started life as a B&K Root Beer stand. For many years it operated under the Allen's name. More recently it is named Short's. It is a seasonal operation and is normally closed during the winter months. It is about a mile East of the drive-in theater. The Short family also operates a small store on the chain of lakes.
I will also include here that 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.
