Neon Glory Mr. Quick, undated

Mr. Quick Hamburgers, undated.

The first Mr. Quick opened at 609-611 N. Main St. in Normal in 1959. Eventually the hamburger chain, founded by Twin City resident Marcel Comte, boasted locations in four states. The last Mr. Quick restaurant, located at the northeast corner of Washington and Clinton streets in Bloomington, closed in early 2001. The site is now a gravel lot.
The date and location of this Mr. Quick is unknown. If you can help with the identification, email Museum Librarian Bill Kemp at BKemp@mchistory.org. Thanks!
