Enjoy Wimpy
The Wimpy Bar, or simply Wimpy, is a multinational hamburger restaurant chain started in the United Kingdom in 1954. Originally a much-smaller chain founded in the United States in the 1930s, there it had used hamburger-eating Popeye character J. Wellington Wimpy as its symbol and inspiration. The Wimpy Bar debuted in London as the fast-food section of Corner House restaurants, but its success soon allowed it to become a separate chain and expand across Britain and later, to other parts of the world.

Upon its British debut, the franchise broke away from its Wimpy-inspired roots and did not reference the Segar character, instead employing its own derivative mascot, Mr. Wimpy. This character even starred in his own video game: Mr. Wimpy: The Hamburger Game.

Trivia

  • A different, fictional "Wimpys" fast-food restaurant was featured in Popeye and Son.
