Long Description:
I vaguely remember eating at a Burger Chef once as a kid somewhere, I think, in the northern upper peninsula of Michigan.

According to (visit link)

Burger Chef's original building design is known as the 'kite look' or 'open kite' ... designed by Indianapolis architect Harry E. Cooler.

... The kite look gave the Burger Chef stores a sense of excitement, with the upward and outward thrust of the reproduction of the road sign across the front of the building. This shape was also reproduced in the roof sign, which extended from the ordering area. the shapes along with the vibrant colors used added to the excitement. The kite look also gave Burger Chef some identity with this unique design.
