It is hoped the company will be able to offer apprenticeships and one day make it into a chain.
The Express & Star state that the four men who opened the restaurant, Dean Keys and his brother Dale Keys, David Corr and John Cadrick were inspired by shows such as Man vs Food and trips to America.
But as big as this burger may be, it has a long way to go to match one fearsome opponent.
MSN has today reported on the “world”s largest burger” which was “constructed” at the Alameda County Fair in California.
It weighed 777lbs, three feet thick and five feet in diameter. Guinness have approved the feat as a world record, beating the previous “holder” from Canada by 187lbs.
Smokeys may well cast their eye over the American title-holder with the hope one day of setting the record themselves.
