To thank guests for 37 great years, Hamburger Stand will be offering 37¢ hamburgers* from 12-5 p.m. Sunday, October 6, at all locations throughout California, Arizona, Colorado and Wyoming, according to a recent Hamburger Stand press release.

Hamburger Stand’s original hamburger is a juicy, 100% beef patty grilled and topped with mustard, ketchup, pickle and minced onions. Beyond their namesake hamburgers, the restaurants feature Wienerschnitzel hot dogscorn dogschili cheese fries and Tastee-Freez soft-serve treats, the report said.

In 1982, Hamburger Stand was founded by John Galardi, the same man who founded Wienerschnitzel, the world’s largest hot dog chain, in 1961. A key player in fast food beginnings with the likes of Glen Bell of Taco Bell and the rise of McDonalds in the 1960s, Galardi was one of the original pioneers of the quick-service food industry. He later added Tastee-Freez soft serve to Hamburger Stand and Wienerschnitzel menus nationwide, per the release.
