Burgers by the Numbers: Meatheads

Have you ever wondered how much work goes into having a successful burger joint? Meatheads has 11 Illinois locations including one in Chicago. Here is how much food they go through in a week.


After crunching the numbers for the four M Burger locations on Monday, the week is bookended with one of the most popular burger joints in the state, Meatheads. There's 11 locations in the state (with two more on the way) and the first city location opened in Roscoe Village in September. They employ a build-your-own menu plus six "chef inspired" items. How many ingredients does a state-wide chain like this go through a week? See for yourself.
