Kewpee Hamburgs-- Part 6: Five Left


The original Flint location became Bill Thomas' Halo Burger.  Wendy's founder, Dave Thomas, as a child eating at Kewpee got the inspiration for his burgers from the Kewpee burgers.  He founded Wendy's in 1969.

Early Slogans:

"Mity Nice Hamburgers"

"Your Grandpappy Are Here."

"We Cater To All Folks"

"Hamburg Pickle On Top!  Makes Your Heart Go Flippity-Flop!""

There are only five Kewpes remaining:

**  Lansing, Michigan

**  Racine Wisconsin

**  Lima, Ohio, has three of them:  Downtown, West and East
