Simsbury based Nutmeg Burger Corporation was the owner of the Bristol location. In 2012, two additional locations in Pennsylvania were opened by Nutmeg in Levittown and Philadelphia. Recently the Levittown location closed as well.
Checkers announced in 2010 that it signed a multi-unit store development agreement with Nutmeg Burger Corp. for five new restaurants in the Hartford area. Once the Bristol location opened no additional locations were added in Connecticut.
Checkers joined Sonic as a new player in the burger battle in Connecticut. Currently Sonic of Connecticut has plans to open a new location in Bristol. The drive-in will take over the current Arby’s location on route 6.
Sonic currently has locations in Wallingford, Milford and Manchester.
