Kmart Chef Restaurants

Kmart Chef restaurants were a small chain of free-standing fast-food restaurants owned by Kmart. They were started in 1967 with the first location being in the parking lot of Pontiac, Michigan store. The menu consisted of standard fast foods such as burgers, french fries, hot dogs, and soft drinks. They didn’t last very long sadly and the Kmart Chef chain folded in 1974 after only opening 11 locations.

Here is an advertisement for the chain posted on pleasant family shopping that was found via the Retroist Photo Pool.
