Hamburger Mary's Franchise Opportunities - History

In 1972, a band of hippies in California concocted the idea of a bar and restaurant that had a relaxed feel and provided great late-night food and drinks in an eclectic atmosphere. Quickly becoming a popular hangout for homosexuals, Hamburger Mary embraced the community and strived to create an atmosphere where eccentric and artistic people can feel relaxed, no matter the sexual orientation. Hamburger Mary's had experienced both fortune and failure, with many locations quickly opening, closing and even reopening again and even losing the original location in San Francisco. By 2007 the business was under new ownership and soon after 10 locations quickly opened. Currently there are over 10 U.S. locations and Hamburger Mary's is looking to expand into Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Western Europe.
