Lou Groen (above) came up with the sandwich idea (below) in the 1960s because he and his customers did not eat hamburgers on Fridays in Cincinnati. His legacy continues with his son and grandchildren (shown below, left to right): Grant Groen, Paul Groen, son of Lou and father of Grant and Erica, and Erica (Groen) Shadoin.
