Mention the name Ground Pat'i anywhere in Louisiana and the response is likely to be a mouth-watering description of the best-known hamburger in the state. Founded in 1971, Ground Pat'i became known not only for the best hamburgers, but also for a warm inviting and casual dining experience complete with a fireplace and free peanuts. "“Hungry?…Ground Pat'i!'” was the slogan of the time. Under previous ownership, the Ground Pat'i chain began offering franchises in the late 1970's and grew to nineteen locations throughout Louisiana and surrounding states. Early on, the restaurant experimented with a couple of different looks. However, none of these new decors was as inviting or as popular as the original, casual and rustic Ground Pat'i restaurants. The new franchisor, Ground Pat'i International, Inc., intends to return it to the original Ground Pat'i concept of a sit-down family restaurant, serving gourmet hamburgers in a casual setting.
