Varsity taking shape at Five Points

The old Dairy Queen building at Five Points has been demolished and now the new Varsity restaurant is starting to go up.

No word yet on an official opening date.

A photo taken Thursday morning showed that the framework of the building is well underway.

The Spider Webb Drive location was sold in the winter of 2021 for $1 million, brokered by Toles, Temple, and Wright Real Estate. The Dairy Queen restaurant shuttered soon after that, and demolition was completed in July 2022.

The original plans called for:

  •  A 4,448-square-foot restaurant with outside seating.
  •  The entrance to the parking lot is on Spider Webb Drive with the exit on East First Street, similar to what Dairy Queen had.
  •  Two lanes of traffic will circle the restaurant; one for the drive-through and the second for a bypass.

The Gordy family opened the first Varsity in 1928.

The nearest location to Rome is in Kennesaw.
