Re:Anybody remember Little Pigs of America?
Alas, I don't remember it either......but i grew up on Cape Cod in the 50's and 60's. Where I lived, we had NO chain rest except the ubiquitous HJ. Then the first "mall" got built and Friendly's moved in. Today, of course, another whole story. I remember some poor guy had a small regional chain of burger places and wanted to build one in the town. Bent over backwoods to do the architecture right and hide the parking lot behind and yada yada......they never let him in. But in the 50's and 60's almost every place was locally owned/operated independently..usually a husband/wife team. You could get a 25 cent burger in the mid 60's at one place that was great. Of course, it had been built on the "wrong" end of town (right next to one of the swankiest Steakhouse places that hosted things like Rotary, Kiwanis, etc), but that is the closest I remember to the concept of fast food until I went on to college
