MILFORD, Ohio — Cars packed with loyal patrons lined West Main Street in Mount Carmel in May 2014 to get in one last order from Roney’s Restaurant.

The long-time family owned business, opened by the Loftspring family as a Roy Rogers in 1969, closed its doors after a leasing dispute with the building’s owners.


Roney’s wants to thank everyone for the overwhelming support these past few days. We had no idea the impact we had on...

For those who don’t remember, Roy Rogers was once a popular fast food chain named after the singing cowboy who starred in many old black-and-white movies. Its menu menu was akin to Arby’s, known for its barbecue sauce and roast beef sandwiches.

The family changed the location’s name to Roney’s after an issue with the Rogers moniker a few years ago.

Unlike most other Roy Rogers owners who shuttered their businesses long ago, the Loftsprings chose to not sing happy trails to its customers after its leasing dispute.

Instead, they decided to build a new restaurant at 314 Chambers Drive in Milford.


We would like to thank everyone that came out to our ground-breaking ceremony. A huge thank you to the city of Milford,...

It took more than a year to construct Roney’s Restaurant. The family is promising the same great food they’ve served to loyal patrons since 1969, including fried chicken and hamburgers.

They even brought the old Roy Rogers neon sign, a canvas-covered wagon, that stood outside of their old location with them. Of course, it’s the Roney's name in bright red looping letters on it.


Up at last and loving my new home! Thank you for your support and patience, please bear with us for about three more weeks.
