Major chain with more than 3,000 outlets is replaced by brand new burger restaurant after barrage of complaints

A major chain with more than 3,000 restaurants across the country has been replaced by a fresh burger restaurant.

The owner of the Rolling Meadows, Illinois, sports bar Rep’s Place plans to open a new store in Palatine, where the fast-food restaurant Arby’s once stood.

The Palatine Village Council approved a special use and liquor license on Monday that will allow Mike Reppe to open Rep’s Burgers, which will open its doors in the fall, The Daily Herald reported.

“I have been living in the Palatinate for about six years now,” Reppe told the local council.

“I grew up in Rolling Meadows, so I figured I could cover both cities.”

The menu includes delicious smashed burgers, smashed chicken sandwiches, milkshakes, beer, wine and hard seltzer.

The goal is to engage in “price gouging,” from $4.50 gift wrap to “bad” breakfast items

A drive-thru option is also offered, although not for alcohol sales.

Reppe says he will address concerns raised by neighbors about the previous tenant, which closed in 2022, including complaints about neighbors standing on a concrete slab and looking down on private property.

“I have lived in this house for 32 years,” said a neighbor, Lisa Lindemann, at a village meeting.

“I had rubbish in my garden.

“I had wild animals come into my yard to eat Arby’s food.”

Reppe assured locals on Monday, September 11, that “we are taking care of what the residents wanted.”

It follows news that spooky shoppers are rushing to stock up on their Halloween outfits early, as a popular store has opened 1,500 stores nationwide.

Spirit Halloween just announced that it will be opening 1,500 seasonal locations across North America by mid-September.

Elsewhere, Target has announced it will replace an iconic store that operated at the location for 60 years.

Shoppers in South Lake Tahoe, California, will say goodbye to Raley’s, a Sacramento-based grocery chain.
