The Original Hamburger Stand
The Original Hamburger Stand is a regional fast food chain in the western United States. Besides its low-cost burgers, the franchise features menu items from its sister companies Wienerschnitzel and Tastee-Freez at some of its locations. The franchise has locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Texas, and Wyoming.
Its headquarters are located in Irvine, California.
The Original Hamburger Stand began when its parent company the Galardi Group attempted to compete in the hamburger market. The Galardi Group added hamburgers to its Wienerschnitzel menus in 1979, but with little success into the 1980s, the company started two new chains, The Original Hamburger Stand and Weldon's gourmet hamburgers. Poorly performing Wienerschnitzel locations were replaced with The Original Hamburger Stands in locations such as the Denver area.
