We Invented The Invent-Your-Own Cheeburger

When Cheeburger Cheeburger first opened back in 1986 at our original location in Sanibel Island, Florida, we wanted to put our customers in the driver’s seat to build the burger their taste buds have been craving. So, we offered the highest quality, freshest ingredients and the rest is up to our customers’ imagination. It worked! Customers couldn’t get enough of the world’s biggest and best invent-your-own cheeburgers, fries, and shakes in our family-fun atmosphere. And, that’s fine with us. We started a cheeburger revolution! We’re still going strong, opening 42 locations operating in 14 states.
