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.
