BURRILLVILLE – What was once a restaurant and activity center filled with laughter and memories for area families now sits as an empty building at 1950 Broncos Highway, but there’s plenty of potential here for new opportunities.

It was Mr. Doughboy’s, Sweet Caroline’s and Oakley’s before it became Chapman’s restaurant as of January 2022.

Good start to saving some money and improving the bottom line for the owner would be to turn off the dozen or so bright outdoor lights that are left on 24/7. Probably save the other a few hundred dollars a month, if not more.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
