Dick's Drive-In 70th Anniversary

When the original founders, Dick Spady, Warren Ghormley and Dr. B.O.A. “Thom” Thomas opened the first Dick’s Drive-In location in Wallingford on NE 45th ST on January 28th, 1954, they sold hamburgers for 19 cents in Seattle’s first quick-service hamburger restaurant. “The local price for hamburgers at the time was 35 cents,” says Jasmine Donovan, President of Dick’s Drive-In and granddaughter of the namesake Dick Spady. “Not many people believed that selling burgers for 19 cents, especially with a commitment to quality ingredients, could succeed, but for our customers it was love at first bite and here we are 70 years later.”
