COTTONWOOD:

The former Fojol Bros. Restaurant (and before that the R.I.O.T. building) in Old Town may be getting some bites from prospective buyers, according to real estate agent Derien Degher of Caldwell Banker Commercial Realty in Flagstaff.

Degher said they are listing the restaurant and car wash side separately now, and expected a possible closing on the restaurant at the end of the month. He has a buyer interested in the $495,000 former car wash property next door.

He said he doesn’t know what the owners would do with the restaurant if the closing goes through because they are represented by an agent in Sedona. He knows they will remodel the kitchen and it may be leaning on the bakery side of things.
