There are many theories to the beginning of the cheeseburger dating back to the 1920s. One story suggests that Lionel Sternberger is reputed to have invented the cheeseburger in 1926 while working at his father’s Pasadena, California sandwich shop, The Rite Spot. During an experiment, he dropped a slice of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger.
Five Food Finds about Cheeseburger:
• The oldest fast food restaurant in the world is the White Castle franchise, which opened in 1921.
• The people of America eat more burgers out at restaurants or on the go than they do at home.
• The largest hamburger ever created was over 8,000 pounds and was cooked for a burger festival in Wisconsin.
