Kewpee Hamburgers-- Part 2: Five Remaining Kewpees (One in Racine, Wisconsin)


**  The Kewpee hamburger chain started in Flint, Michigan, and evolved into what is now known as Halo Burger.  Under recent new ownership and starting top expand into southeast Michigan.

**  Why was the word "hotels" used in the name?  I'd like to know that as well.

**  The area around Rochester, NY, refers to the sandwich as hamburgs and hot dogs as hots.

**  Racine, Wisconsin, has one of the five remaining Kewpees.

My question.  Might Red's Giant Hamburg, a famous Route 66 restaurant, since torn-down, have been influenced by Kewpee Hamburg?  It too is regarded as one of the first places with a drive-thru window.
