After 60 successful years serving fresh ground, custom-made hamburgers to a devoted following of fans, we had to shut our doors when the University of Michigan bought the property that Blimpy's sat on. As displaced tenants, we were NOT the recipients of the sale. We are determined to re-open in a new location close-by so that we can continue to serve delicious food and memories to the townies, students, and Michigan sports fans that have dined here for generations. That, dear friend, is where you come in; we need your support to make this dream a reality.Read on. They're hoping to raise $60,000, which will help defray the costs of construction, contractor and architect fees, kitchen and dining area equipment and design, completing a lease, and purchasing new inventory.
Whether or not you enjoy or even eat burgers, it's a real shame to think of an Ann Arbor with no Blimpyburger. If you're new to Ann Arbor and don't really get it, find a local and ask about it. I'll be contributing and hope you all think about it as well.
