Iceberg Drive Inn Franchise

Drive-in Restaurant

The first Iceberg Drive Inn was opened by Lamar Sorensen on April 12,
1960.  A local ice cream machine salesman named Hap Vitale had the idea
for a building with a distinctive roof that served great milkshakes,
burgers and fries.  He convinced Lamar to open this concept and Iceberg
Drive Inn
was born.  It was located on the corner of 900 East and 3900
South in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The building was originally designed to
be moved after a few years as he was only renting the land at the time. 
Many report that it was the first drive thru in the Salt Lake City
area.  Lamar insisted that Drive Inn be spelled with two "n’s” as he
felt it appeared friendlier to invite people to an "inn” rather than
simply a "drive in”.
