Posted Oct 31st, 2017 by Scott Radel  Category: General News


Dr. Romules Durant returns to his native East Side to have his signature placed alongside the hundreds of signed hot dog buns on the walls of Tony Packo’s®, Toledo’s most famous restaurant. The event will occur on Wednesday, November 1st at 5pm at the original Front Street location, and the public and press are invited to cheer Dr. Durant on as he signs one of the iconic objects.

The thirtieth superintendent of Toledo Public Schools, Dr. Durant earned three degrees from the University of Toledo as well as distinguished himself as an award-winning athlete playing football. Since working his way into the superintendent position at TPS in 2013, he has taken a world view of academics and adapted it here in Toledo to strive for higher learning and measurable progress among all students.

Packo’s has also recently focused on Toledo-related personalities to bolster their signed hot dog bun collection in their 85th anniversary year. Recent signers include actress Katie Holmes, Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson, University of Toledo President Susan Gaber, Mud Hens president and General Manager Joe Napoli, Dana President and CEO James Kamsickas, ProMedica President and CEO Randy Oostra, and professional football quarterbacks Bruce Gradkowski and DeShone Kizer.

Tony Packo’s opened in 1932 and currently operates four locations in the Greater Toledo area. The eatery also announced the future opening of a new store in the Maumee area by the end of the year. Actor Burt Reynolds was the first celebrity to sign a bun for the restaurant in 1972.
