Calling all cheeseburger fans: check in for charity

Five Guys and Kraft American Cheese slices are the perfect combination to commemorate the classic American food holiday, National Cheeseburger Day. Five Guys is known for its fresh, juicy burgers, wide variety of toppings and using the best burger-making ingredients, which is why it chooses Kraft American Cheese, according to a news release.

“Since we first opened our doors in 1986, we’ve paired our burgers with Kraft American Cheese slices for their creamy melt and mild taste,” says Molly Catalano, director of communications for Five Guys. “We’re pleased to team up with Kraft Cheese on another delicious venture—the cheeseburger check-in—in support of a great cause.”

America’s love affair with cheeseburgers

The cheeseburger has come a long way since its storied inception in 1924 when Lionel Clark Strenberger experimentally topped a hamburger with a slice of American cheese at his father’s sandwich shop. Americans have been topping their burgers with individually-wrapped slices for nearly 50 years, after Kraft Singles was introduced nationally in 1965. Today, the cheeseburger has become one of America’s favorite foods, enjoyed in the U.S. approximately 900 million times per week.
