Checkers Drive-In Restaurants Inc.
Checkers® & Rally's® restaurants were born out of the idea that a bland and flavorless burger was downright bad and that Americans everywhere deserved a better tasting burger — one that was unexpectedly bold, made-to-order and priced at a value that was hard to beat. Founded by experienced foodies with a renegade spirit, both the Checkers & Rally's unique double drive-thru concept, with its over-the-top checkerboard squares, chrome styling, red neon signs and of course, the food, was an instant hit. In 1999 these two great flavors would unite bringing their passion for big flavor together. This successful merger would make Checkers & Rally's the largest double drive thru restaurant chain in the country. Today Checkers & Rally's have more than 800 restaurants open in the United States. • Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc. burst onto the burger scene in 1986 in Mobile, Alabama. • Rally's Drive-In Restaurants, Inc. first fired up the grill in 1985 in Louisville, Kentucky.
