Not Fooling Anybody

I figured there must be a website for this (seeing as how there is a website for everything).

That's right -- Not Fooling Anybody is a website devoted to businesses which take over the premises of rather obvious businesses.

Example?

Monte_vista_liquors

Monte Vista Liquors takes over a former KFC building (Phoenix, AZ) .... not fooling anybody.

And then there's...

Questautos

Quest Autos in Tampa Florida taking over an IHOP.

Northeasterntitle

Northeastern Loans in New Castle Delaware takes overs a Taco Bell.

Even less subtle is...

Oldtown

Oldtown Pancake House in Florissant, Missouri didn't even try....

Sometimes when a chain franchise goes out of business, an independent buyer swoops in and buys the place and tries to keep (as close as possible) the same name.  For example, a certain Baskin Robbins went under in Atlanta, and this is what appeared as its successor:

Basketrabbit

Not. Fooling. Anybody.

And then of course, you have people who are just plain lazy, like this chiropractor in Broken Arrow, OK, who moved his offices into a former Kentucky Fried Chicken:
