Portland, Oregon, Salt Lake City, Utah and Seattle, Washington. The first Coon Chicken Inn Restaurant was opened in 1925 in Salt Lake City, a second location was opened in 1929 in Lake City near Seattle Washington, a third location was opened in 1931 in Portland Oregon. The restaurant chain was popular in their day. The restaurant's name (which uses an ethnic slur), trademarks, and entrances of the restaurants were designed to look like a smiling blackface caricature of an African-American porter.
The smiling capped porter head also appeared on menus, dishes, and promotional items. Due to change in popular culture and the general consideration of being culturally and racially offensive, the chain has been closed since the late 1950's.
