Hungry Tiger and Lum's
A chain of seafood restaurants located mostly in Southern California, Hungry Tiger at one time had more than 40 locations. Unable to compete with newcomers in the 1980s, the Hungry Tiger chain finally went out of business.
Hot dog purveyor Lum’s had more than 300 locations at one point. The chain was purchased in 1971 by John Y. Brown, then the chairman of Kentucky Fried Chicken, and a group of investors. Only two Lum’s remain today.
