Happy Days opens its doors to downtown Quincy

If you're driving down Maine Street in Quincy, you might notice a new restaurant has opened its doors.
Happy Days has been open for around a week, and it serves food and treats in an old-fashioned setting.
KHQA asked owner Angie Kindhart where the idea for a 50s and 60s theme restaurant came from.
Kindhart said she has memories of going to car shows with her grandpa, and decided to continue those memories into a restaurant.
When a business space next to her clothing shop opened up, she thought it was time to test her skills at being a restaurant owner.
"The opportunity just came at us," Kindhart said. "We actually own two businesses on both sides, I have a clothing store, and then the graphic shop next door. We just got the opportunity, so we grabbed on it."
Happy Days offers old-fashioned soda floats, pizza, and even vintage arcade games.
Kindhart thinks every child deserves a birthday party, so she's even set aside the party room for free for the public's use.
"We're going to offer free birthday parties. It's a 90 minute sit in at our table and then kids can play arcades," Kindhart said. "We just ask that there's no food or beverages brought in. But it's free, so if you don't want to buy anything here, you don't have to buy anything. We just want to give every kid an opportunity to have a good birthday."
She hopes the unique atmosphere brings more people to downtown Quincy.
"I just hope it brings the community downtown more" Kindhart said. "Businesses are really popping up downtown, so I kind of hope it helps out a lot."
