They eventually opened more locations in the late 1950s and added hamburgers to the menu. Her son, Donald Everett, and friend, Rod Beckman, who took over operations in 1966, began franchising and established a company.Today there are locations throughout Nebraska with one location in Colorado, two in Iowa and two in Kansas.In October 2008 the company's official website reported it operates and franchises 83 locations.
