National Chain Restaurants That Were Founded In Oklahoma
Oklahoma has been a surprising food and flavor originator for over half a century, and I'll admit, I had no idea how many national chains grew out of the Sooner State.
Obviously, Sonic is known across the whole country as a drink stop and the occasional dollar hotdog/corndog place, but even more home-grown eateries have climbed the ladder of success into full-blown franchise heaven.
Of course there are a few barbeque joints on the list that most people assume are local to our state border. With a few Tex-Mex options to get the spice of life in your diet, and sweet fried doughs in the morning with a cup of solid donut shop coffee, Oklahoma's reach into the restaurant national spotlight is astounding.
How many of these have you sampled so far in life?
