The Henry’s Hamburgers run in Buffalo started in the early 1960s and lasted through the late 1970s.
This ad appeared in The News in 1964.
City locations included spots on Hertel Avenue, McKinley Parkway, Jefferson Avenue and Main Street at Leroy Avenue. Some of the early success for the franchise locally came from Buffalo Bills star Ernie Warlick, who not only invested in several franchise locations but was often found behind the counter serving up the burgers and fries by the pound himself.
Suburban locations included on Delaware Avenue in Kenmore, Main Street in Tonawanda, Union Road in Cheektowaga and Military Road and Pine Avenue in Niagara Falls.
Each restaurant was owned by different franchisees, and promotional advertising often only applied to a single store. Such was the case for this “free hamburger” coupon, which could be redeemed at the store on Niagara Falls Boulevard at Sheridan Drive.
