The chain started in the early 60's in Dayton, OH by a man named Harry
Barmier, it was called The Red Barn System.  It was sold in the late 60's to a
company called Servomation (food vending) and became Red Barn Restaurants Inc..
After many successful years, The Red Barn chain was sold again in the late 70s, this time to Motel 6. Motel 6 only wanted Servomation Corp., not the Red Barn chain.  Over time with little or no advertising, leases ran out and the restaurants closed.   In its 20+ year run, the Red Barn operated in 22 states,  Canada and Australia.

Our friend Chuck Fraley of Marlow Heights 60's and 70's is in the news!
Click here to read the article.  Congratulations Chuck!
"My father was Red Barn's first employee, outside of the actual employees at the first restaurant. He was hired in 1962 by the three founders of the company-- Don Six, Jim Kirst and Martin Levine. (Harry Barmeier was a franchisee in Youngstown, and a cousin of Jim Kirst.) At the time, they only had one unit, which was in Springfield, Ohio, it was on US 40, as you entered the western edge of town. My father's name was Jack Lee, and he was in charge of selling franchises. And he sold 100's of those over the years. The fledgling chain was bought in 1963 by a company called Foodcraft Management, who also owned Culp's Cafeterias. They were located in Dayton, Ohio, where we lived for a year in 1963. The owner of Foodcraft was Richard Kearns, and he relocated the company to Fort Lauderdale in 1964. I was told that he and his wife Ginnie had fallen in love with Fort Lauderdale on their honeymoon, and that was the reason for the move. Then, sometime in the late 60's, Servomation bought the chain and my father was made president. In 1972, Servomation wanted to move the headquarters closer to most of the restaurants (Florida actually had very few Red Barns), and my dad chose McLean, Virginia. He remained president until 1976. At it's peak, I believe there were more than 300 restaurants, perhaps as many as 400". The Red Barn chain was sold again in the late 70s, this time to Motel 6. Motel 6 only wanted Servomation Corp., not the Red Barn chain.  Over time with little or no advertising, leases ran out and the restaurants closed.   In its 20+ year run, the Red Barn operated in 22 states,  Canada and Australia.
Update 6/14/06:  Recently I received e-mail from Mike Lee, the son of Jack Lee, Red Barn's first employee.  Mike was kind enough to give a true account of the beginning of the Red Barn chain.  Jack Lee was the man that introduced not only my family to the Red Barn chain, but hundreds of others.  Thank you Mike, we all hope you will continue to update this site and help keep the memory alive for the thousands of us that truly miss this American classic.  Below is a portion of the e-mail from Mike Lee, used with Mike's permission.
