Three years ago, I finally found myself at the Kewpee Hamburgers location in Downtown Lima, Ohio. It was an out of body experience for me. It had been a long wait, but I was finally able to visit and eat at one of their restaurants.
When the time to figure out where I’d be signing copies of my book All About the Burger, I knew that a stop at Kewpee in Lima was mandatory. I wouldn’t take no for an answer. Lucky for me, they said yes.
I got to enjoy another one of those delectable Double Cheeseburgers (with onions, pickles & mustard) and one of their frosted malts. I also signed a bunch of books, hung out & talked Kewpee history with Scott Shutt, VP of Kewpee Hamburgers, and was on a local TV station that covered the event.
It was an awesome day if you ask me, and true to their catchphrase, my heart went flippity-flop.
Thank you to Scott Schutt and everyone at Kewpee Hamburgers for treating my wife and I like kings.
