In 1940 Sam’s Tavern opened its doors for the first time. Located in Seattle Washington the owner, Sam, sang in a barbers shop quartet and enjoyed singing the song Re, Red Robins. He liked it so much that he actually changed the name of his tavern to Sam’s Red Robins. In 1969 Gerry Kingen bought the restaurant from Sam and dropped his name from the new restaurant.
The tavern was a popular spot with the college students and he added hamburgers to the menu. Sales went through the roof. By 1979 Kingen allowed tow regulars to open their own Red Robins in Yakima Washington, becoming the first franchisee.
Today Red Robins has over 400 locations nationwide and about 20 locations in Canada.
