Tony Packos

Chances are, even if you’re not from the Toledo area, you’ve heard of Tony Packo’s.  A local staple since the 1930s, this Hungarian restaurant, known for its hot dogs, pickles, and peppers, was made world-famous by actor Jamie Farr in the TV show M*A*S*H.

But fame can’t prevent accidents.   And in the restaurant world, when an accident occurs, you need a trusted partner who will work with you and restore your building back to normal as soon as possible.

That’s why Tony Packo’s turned to Cousino Restoration early one morning when a semi-truck suddenly went through the main restaurant building and into the bar/dining area.

Cousino Restoration went to work immediately, shoring up the building while the truck was removed—and doing so in a matter so that the second floor did not collapse.  The only day that Tony Packo’s could not stay open was the day of the accident.

But there were other major concerns involved in this accident—one especially being pedestrian traffic for customers entering and exiting the building.  There was an extensive amount of work involving scaffolding, materials, and manpower, but Cousino Restoration worked quickly and safely, and all went well without any incidents.

Overall, careful attention was paid to restoring the building back to the original historical detail. Work was done in record time, and the restaurant was kept open every single day afterwards. The entire project was completed without a glitch.
