Expanding inside and outside with concert area.

Silvis, Illinois - June 6 - Marybeth and John Stopoulos owners of The Doc's Inn bar and grill in Silvis, Illinois are happy to announce that they are planning a major expansion shortly after their 1 year anniversary. The plan is to add a separate room that could be used for overflow seating and small parties. We are also planning on adding a concert and party area outside the restaurant. The new area outside will be used to host the many outdoor events that The Doc's Inn hosts every year. The first one we will be hosting this year is the Cinco De Mayo Fiesta that raises money for the Viva Quad Cities scholarship fund.

The Doc's Inn is a part of the FIfth Avenue Maid Rite Co. owned by John and MaryBeth Stopoulos. They also own Dr. Gyros in Rock Island. The company has been in business for 16 years and has many plans for expansion in the near future.
