THE ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET ~

Related image

Sweden and France were the first countries to form the buffet concept. The
smorgasbord originated in Sweden as a way to feed hungry out-of-town
visitors. The offering started out small with just bread and butter, which in
the Swedish language translates to “smorgasbord”. The menu grew to
include salted fish, eggs and boiled vegetables, moving on to cold cuts,
warm entrees and salads, ending the spread with dessert and coffee. The
French offered a more refined display featuring lavish “buffet” tables. 

The Swedish folks brought their smorgasbord to America at the 1939
World’s Fair in New York. The sizable selection of food was located
atop a rotating platform inside the Three Crowns restaurant (below).

The smorgasbord at Three Crowns went on to inspire other buffet-style
restaurants in the 1950’s.

Burger Chef was a fast-food restaurant chain that began operating in 1954 in Indianapolis, Indiana. It expanded throughout the United States, and, at its peak
in 1973, had 1,050 locations. The chain featured several signature items, such
as the Big Shef and Super Shef hamburgers.

In 1982, the General Foods Corporation, then-owners of the Burger Chef name trademark, divested itself of the restaurant chain, gradually selling to the owners
of Hardee’s. The final restaurant to carry the Burger Chef name closed in 1996.
