At the dawn of the 1970s, two young Americans met in London. Isaac Tigrett was born into a wealthy family, and moved as a teenager to England, where his father exported Rolls-Royces to the U.S. After attending private school in Switzerland, he followed the hippie trail to India on a spiritual 1)quest before returning to London. Peter Morton, son of a successful Chicago restaurant owner, arrived in London after earning a business degree at the University of Denver.

When the two 2)expatriates ran into each other, they found themselves wishing they could trade fish and chips for burgers and fries. This longing led to their eureka moment. Figuring there were thousands of American 2)expats in the same boat, they decided to open their own restaurant and serve American staples like burgers, fries, shakes, apple pie and cold beer
