ROCKFORD, Ill (WIFR) -- A staple south side drive-in has plans to reopen next year under a new name and with new owners.
Bings Drive-In on South Main Street has served customers for more than three decades. It announced on its Facebook page that it has sold to new owners Benny and Rosalie Salamone, the owners of Salamone's Italian Restaurant in Cherry Valley. The couple plans to rename the drive in Salamone's South Pizzeria & Bings Burgers.
They say they want to keep the iconic structure but plan to add more space to it to provide year round service. It plans to open in 2021.
