Fish Yeah! Long John Silver’s to Rebuild in Temple, Texas
A few months after Long John Silvers burned down in Temple, Texas, the Sea Meals are returning!
Long John Silvers Fire in Temple, Texas
Flashback to October 11, 2021, when Temple Fire & Rescue responded to a fire call at the Long John Silvers location on S 31st Street in Temple just after 6pm. The good news was that everybody inside were able to get out safely. The bad news is the building was a total loss.
Check out the live feed from our news partners at KWTX:
The fire left the building completely unsalvageable, and a few months later it was totally demolished. Looking at the empty lot now, it's remarkable how small the original building really was.
Sailing Soon! Long John Silvers to Rebuild in Temple, Texas
If you've driven down South 31st recently, you may have noticed a sign in front of the fenced off area that simply says "Sailing Soon! Long John Silver's". That's right: They're rebuilding instead of selling the property, which is great news for fast food seafood lovers and not so great news for anyone who hoped a Dutch Bros Coffee might go in there.
According to their website, the new location is hiring for all positions including Team Members, Staff Members, Assistant and General Managers, and should be open in the fall of this year.
Welcome Back to Temple, Texas
Scrolling through the Temple, TX - City Watch page on Facebook, I noticed most people were pretty excited to see Long John Silver's rebuild. Not all of course, because it is social media which means everybody with an opinion will definitely share theirs good or bad, but most were pretty happy to see LJS rebuild and return to the same spot.
LJS's plans to open in the fall of this year, so even better news is more jobs to be had in Temple.
