Management meeting Wednesday to discuss plans moving forward
Cookeville – For 50 years Mini Burger in Cookeville has been a staple of the community.
Serving up bite-sized burgers and french fries with a dash of retro charm, the restaurant was a no-brainer for both regulars and visitors. However, the restaurant announced on Sunday it would be shutting its doors after recent financial struggles.
“After an incredible 50-plus years, it’s with a mix of nostalgia and gratitude that we announced the closure of our very own “small mom and pop burger shop” that we love,” said the burger joint via Facebook. “Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of creating lasting memories sharing heartwarming stories and forging deep friendships within this community.”
General manager Bianca Hawlik has said she believes in the business and hopes to reopen. According to reports, management will meet Wednesday looking to form a plan to restore business, but no timeline has been announced.
As of now, the coolest little burger joint in the Upper Cumberland is closed.
“The support and loyalty you’ve shown us have been nothing short of remarkable,” said Miniburger. “From the first bite to the final goodbye, your presence has enriched our lives and filled our hearts with joy. The shared moments and laughter we’ve experienced together are treasures that we will carry with us forever… From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for 50-plus years of unwavering support, loyalty and cherished moments.”
