Founded in San Francisco in 1972, Hamburger Mary's Bar and Grille is coming to Milwaukee, nearly 40 years later. Hamburger Mary's outlined its plan, complete with "Laverne and Shirley" references, on its company blog on Monday.
The franchise will open its 10th location at 2130 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., the former home of Omega Burger. Perched on the corner of Bay Street and Kinnickinnic Avenue in Bay View, the nearly 3,000-square foot space is a gateway to the neighborhood.
According to the company's site, Dale Warner, of West Hollywood, and brothers Ashley and Brandon Wright, of Chicago, control and run the franchise that bills itself as the "the only national franchise actively marketing to the LGBT community."
