Meathead’s Burgers and Fries was founded by current CEO Tom Jednorowicz in 2007. The company is headquartered in Bloomington, Illinois. As of March of 2016, the company has 17 locations, most of them in Illinois. The company is known for its wide variety of toppings and burger sizes. The restaurant chain also offers chicken burgers, chicken sandwiches, as well as salads and drinks.
Meathead’s Burgers and Fries, often called Meathead’s, is a specialty burger chain that describes itself as a “fast casual” restaurant, rather than a fast food location. Annual sales in 2011 were $5 million. The company has yet to offer a franchise system, although the owner, who is a former executive at Potbelly Sandwich Works, says he is considering it.
