WHO IS CHARLIE, you may ask?
Hamburger Charlie, as he affectionately became known, is recognised as one of the genuine trailblazers of the hamburger. In 1885, 15-year-old Charlie was selling meatballs at the annual Seymour Fair in Wisconsin using ground ‘hamburg’ steak – a popular item at the time.
Sales were slow, so Charlie decided to smash a meatball and some onions between two slices of bread so folks could eat and walk around the fair at the same time.
A GENIUS MOVE
Charlie called his sandwich a “Hamburger” –and the rest, as they say, is history!
While historical opinion varies, he certainly believed in “bringing good times”, along with quality produce to the people – a tradition we’re proudly carrying on today.
