Burger Shops - Regional Chains
Managed By: Icon Here Burger Barons
Description:
This category is for outlets of REGIONAL burger shops, as opposed to those that are local and independent, or are national/international in scope.
Expanded Description:
This category is for burger shops that are part of a regional franchise or chain. Independent burger shops and national/international franchises and chains are excluded.

This category is for restaurants whose focus is primarily hamburgers. Many places have pizza as a menu item, but they may not qualify. Usually the name or the menu will help identify the nature of the business, though not always.

What qualifies as a REGIONAL franchise or chain:

1. Any franchise or chain already on the list!

As new waymarks are submitted, that franchise/chain will be added to the variable drop-down list and we'll try to keep the list here updated.

2. Basic definition for the United States and Canada

* In general a chain should have outlets in several states, although in some cases they may be confined to one large state.
* If a group of businesses is family owned, or has only a few outlets in a smaller geographic area, then it is probably an independent shop.
* The line between REGIONAL and NATIONAL is more difficult to draw. We will try to be flexible on this, but in general we will follow these guidelines:
- Outlets in fewer than 20 states
- Confined to a geographic region such as west coast, east coast, midwest or south.
(usually there will be a concentration in the original city or state, dispersed outward.

3. Chains outside Canada and the United States

* Franchises or chains that are confined to one country will be considered "regional" for the purposes of this category.
* Franchises or chains that have outlets in more than one country may be considered regional if it is a relatively small group and still confined a small, well-defined area. These will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

The following is a starting list of qualifying burger chains. Most of the links lead to store locator pages if there is one.

Instructions for Posting a Burger Shops - Regional Chains Waymark:


HOW TO SUBMIT A WAYMARK

First, check to see if the franchise or chain is already on the list. If it is on the list, then you are free to submit it as a qualifying site.

Second, if your waymark represents a new regional franchise or chain, please include the following:

* Web site address. Most regional businesses will have a website. If it doesn't, it may be local or independent.
* Number of states and provinces, or country, where there are outlets
* Total number of outlets
* Narrative description stating why you think this qualifies as a regional franchise or chain
* Optiional - Write a short profile of this company that we can include in this page.

This information can be submitted to the group leader before posting a waymark, or as part of the waymark when submitted. Our intent is to be more inclusive than exclusive while maintaining a sense of consistency within the category, so we'll be as generous as we can.

1). COORDINATES: Personally obtained coordinates must be obtained as close to the main entrance of the business as possible. Coordinates should NOT be taken at, be taken from viewing areas unless access is somehow restricted.

2). PHOTOS: A minimum of TWO photos is required. One must show the entire building and the other must be a clear close-up of a sign or identifying lettering. (If there is no sign at all, or other restrictions on photography, please write a note in the private message box when submitting the waymark). While we don't expect professional photography, waymarks submitted with underexposed, blurred, skewed or otherwise poor quality photos may be declined. All photos must be the waymarker's original photos and be placed in the photo gallery for the waymark.

3). DESCRIPTIONS: Keep in mind that the quick description is what people see when browsing, so do your best to give a succinct description that will give people at a glance an overview of the waymark.

In the long description, include any relevant information about this particular location. If you can say it all in the short description, that is fine. If you copy and paste, you MUST give proper attribution.

4). VARIABLES: Please make a good faith effort to provide the information for the variables. Most are not required as they may not apply in all instances.

5). WAYMARK NAME: The waymark title should begin with the franchise/chain name, followed by any clarifying identification such as a street name, if needed, The city and state or country must be at the end of each waymark . (Two letter state abbreviations are preferred for U.S. sites).
Use the following examples as a guide:
FINEST BURGERS CHAIN - Main St. - Chicago, IL
BURGERS GALORE FRANCHISE - Portsmouth, OH

SPECIAL NOTE: While the details outlined in our category description, and the requirements listed in the posting instructions, cover the MINIMUM elements and standards for all waymarks in this category, each waymark will also be evaluated by a volunteer reviewer for overall quality and appropriateness. If a reviewer deems that there are deficiencies in some aspect of the waymark, the waymark may be either declined or accepted with request for changes and/or additions in either content or format.

Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category. If there is a disagreement, try to work it out with the evaluating officer, or appeal to the group leader, but we reserve the right to accept or decline a waymark based on our best judgement.
