Long Description:
Frank and Donald Thomas opened a stand-alone restaurant at 1300 West 16th Street in Indianapolis, which they called “Burger Chef”. The unique taste of the char-grilled burger, coupled with the brother’s extensive contact network in the food service business, and a reasonable 15-cent price per burger, meant that the chain grew quickly.
