COPLEY, Ohio — The iconic bunny sign that stood along Copley Road is coming down as part of the township's plans to demolish the vacant Charlie's Ribs and Chicken, according to News 5's media partners at the Akron Beacon Journal.

The township is buying the land from Jeannie Kalos, whose late husband's family founded the restaurant in 1961.

The restaurant closed shortly after he died in 2016.

The building has been vacant ever since.

The township purchased the property for $65,000.

The big question for many Bunny and Charlie’s fans is what will happen to the white bunny, which is holding a hamburger and has a napkin around its neck.

There's no demolition date set.
