Some Roy Rogers are still open in rest areas on the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway and Atlantic City Expressway.

Roy Rogers restaurants were founded in 1968 by Marriott Corporation in cooperation with the famous cowboy star.

In 1990 Marriott sold Roy Rogers to Hardees who wanted to eventually convert the chain to their own banner. When initial conversions proved not to be successful they had to be converted back to Roy Rogers.

By the mid-90s Hardees decided to sell off company-owned Roy Rogers stores to Boston Market, Wendy’s and McDonald’s leaving just franchised stores and highway rest stop locations.
