The Haberkamp Family in Pine Hills
Marilyn Haberkamp and her family moved to the Pine Hills area of Orlando from the Village of Mount Prospect, Illinois in 1966 to open a Burger Chef restaurant. The restaurant, in the new community of Pine Hills, opened on May 24, 1966 with the entire family working behind the counter – including their three young sons Tim, Tom and Robert. In 1982 Hardees bought out the Burger Chef franchise and a year later the Burger Chef became Hardees. They Haberkamp family has been very involved in the Pine Hills area ever since!
