Anyone know what chain/restaurant this is? New paint job on old Trafalgar Lick's (Oakville)

They did some work within the last two days on the old Lick's on Trafalgar in Oakville. Curious if anyone recognizes the checkerboard design from another location/etc. I thought that maybe it was Five Guys but they have more red checkered and it doesn't seem to appear in the outside display of the stores from my googling of images.

  1. It looks like a quick oil change place to me!

    1. Looks a little bit like the Checkers/Rally chain

      Johnny Rocket's also uses the checkerboard motif in their design

      Who says it has to be a chain, it could be anyone doing a retro diner style single restaurant

      1. re: bytepusher

        Yeah, you are right, it could be a one off but it just looked "familiar" to me but maybe just a typical retro look.

      2. Quaker Steak? They have a similar green / checkered exterior.

        1. I have been searching for it as well. It looks really familiar but cannot place it.

          1. How about that old Celine Dion chain, Nickels Deli? I think they were greenish with checks. Hope not.
