, the founder of Chez Chakour started the burger craze in Lebanon in 1969 when he brought the hamburger idea from Bulgaria. At that time, restaurants in Lebanon mainly served Middle Eastern food. In 2014, he was about to shut down the restaurant because he believed that his son Mike couldn’t manage it. Two days later, Mike came up with the idea of a pizza burger. His father changed his mind, and the rest is history. https://www.facebook.com/394348034000560/photos/a.408211509280879.1073741828.394348034000560/683204571781570/?type=3&theater People on social media went crazy over the pizza burger.
