Steak 'n Shake was founded in February, 1934 in Normal, Illinois. Gus Belt, Steak 'n Shake's founder, pioneered the concept of premium burgers and milk shakes.
For over 80 years, the company's name has been symbolic of its heritage. The word "steak" stood for STEAKBURGER. The term "shake" stood for hand-dipped MILK SHAKES. Gus was determined to serve his customers the finest burgers and shakes in the business. To prove his point that his burgers were exceptionally prime, he would wheel in a barrel of steaks (including round, sirloin, and t-bones) and grind the meat into burgers right in front of the guests. Hence arose the origin of their famous slogan, "In Sight It Must Be Right."
After 80 years, they are continuing Steak n Shake's tradition of serving the country's best, freshest, and tastiest burgers and shakes.
