Burger Chef

Burger Chef was an American fast-food restaurant chain founded in 1954 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The chain expanded throughout the United States, and at its peak, in 1973 with 1,050 locations, was second only to McDonald's in the number of locations nationwide. The chain featured several signature items such as the Big Shef and Super Shef hamburgers.

During the mid-1980s, the General Foods Corporation, then-owners of the Burger Chef trademark and name, decided that fast food was no longer in the company's outline, and soon the chain was gradually sold off to the owners of Hardee's. The final Burger Chef closed in 1996, but many of the chain's restaurants survive as Hardee's or various other fast-food establishments.
