Vintage Tampa Signs and Scenes


Vintage Tampa Signs and Scenes

By John V. Cinchett

During the 1950s, the Cinchett Neon Sign Company came to be Tampa’s best-known sign maker. When the city planned to build a zoo, the mayor asked Cinchett to design the new sign. Fried chicken king Colonel Sanders had the sign company create all the neon work for his first two Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants in Central Florida, and soon after, other reputable businesses came calling.
