Cheeburger Cheeburger Franchise Finds Kansas

Sunday, June 21, 2009

Don't call it a cheeseburger.

Call it a cheeburger, and put as many as 26 different toppings on it at no extra cost.

The name of the new restaurant opening 11 a.m. Tuesday at 2919 S.W. Wanamaker Road is Cheeburger Cheeburger � a franchise operation based in Fort Myers, Fla., that operates 75 restaurants, mostly in the eastern and southeastern United States.

The Topeka franchise � the first in Kansas � is owned and operated by Tom and Sharon Overton. Sharon explained that Tom was looking for something to do after retiring from 33 years in the automobile business and approached the Cheeburger chain.

"I can only sit and eat potato chips and watch poker for so long," Tom said.

The Cheeburger chain suggested several locations, but the couple chose Topeka because Sharon was born and raised here.

"We just thought it would be something a little different for Topeka, so here we go," Tom said.

The specialty of Cheeburger Cheeburger, of course, is what is referred to in the rest of the world as a cheeseburger. Each Cheeburger is all natural and the beef is fresh from a plant in Dodge City. When ordering a Cheeburger, you can choose from one of nine cheeses and then any combination of 26 toppings for no extra charge, including all 26 for the daring.

"It's not fast food," Tom said. "Everything is made to order." The menu also includes sandwiches and salads you can create with different combinations of toppings. Another staple of Cheeburger Cheeburger is the milkshake and malt flavors � 52 to be exact � that can be mixed to create 378,000 different combinations.

"We have any combination of milkshake or malt you can possible think of," Tom said. "So, if you wanted a chocolate, oreo, almond, coconut, pineapple � what ever you want � it's no extra charge." Tom said the atmosphere is fun and family-friendly with 50s and 60s music as the backdrop.

And if the endless combinations of food aren't enough, patrons can come in and see if they can stomach the pounder challenge. If any adult, 12 and older, can scarf down the pounder, they will get their picture taken and posted on a bulletin board inside the restaurant. Any kid under 12 can take the challenge with a half-pounder.

Tom said the whole idea behind Cheeburger Cheeburger is to have fun, be creative and have a good time while eating.

The restaurant will be open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week.
