Americas Fastest Growing Pizza
When integration came to Cotton Plant Public Schools in 1968, many white families moved to Brinkley (Monroe County) and Des Arc (Prairie County), and the town’s population dropped drastically. In 2004, Cotton Plant schools were consolidated with those of Augusta (Woodruff County). The high school closed, but the elementary school remains open. Today, Cotton Plant has no industry and few businesses, and the city struggles economically. Much of the historic downtown has been demolished, and only a few of the fine old homes remain.

I'm not familiar with this town, but the logo looks an awfully lot like "Hunt Brothers Pizza", ..small pizza shops set up inside gas stations around NE Arkansas.
Same company, a name change was issued a few years back. Some believed "Buffet Style Pizza" should be just that and all toppings to be free instead of a single free topping. So they (don't quote me been a few years since I've done business with them) began working under a DBA or either changed names.
I think it's a shame what's happened in Cotton Plant, the whole place is falling in on it's self.
Use to be a busy place back in the day.
this was originally a gas station and that sign was put up in the 1990's -2000's before it closed…
Sweeet! Very cool!
