Rumor patrol: Owner of Prescott Junction restaurant mulls sale

Answering the rumor that his restaurant is up for sale, Don Burton said, “We’re contemplating (a sale). I’m thinking about it. I’m going to be 72 this year. But we have not listed it yet. We’re in pre-discussion.”

Located at 1121 E. Sheldon St., Don and his wife, Nancy, shifted it from a JB’s Restaurant franchise to an independent local business in 2014. They’ve owned the restaurant for nearly a quarter-century, and Don worked with JB’s for more than 50 years.

Prescott Junction restaurant sits near the intersection of highways 69 and 89, and is often one of the first businesses travelers see when entering Prescott.
