Krusty Burger is a fast-food burger restaurant chain that was founded by Krusty the Clown in Springfield, but has locations in many cities.


Krusty Burger was founded by Krusty the Clown, star of The Krusty the Clown Show.

During the Summer of 1984, Krusty Burger launched a promotion that gave free burgers to those who pick Olympic Events won by the United States on their game cards. The games involved in the promotion were games that were traditionally won by the Russians. Unfortunately for Krusty, the Russians boycott the Olympics, and the United States won almost every event, costing him $44 million. He then vows on camera to spit on every fiftieth burger as a result of his loss (with Homer in particular "liking those odds" when hearing this).[2]

One time, when Homer and Bart were trying to work as grease vendors, Homer chose (after learning that the job's pay was far below what he expected) to rob a Krusty Burger of its grease and started shoveling the grease into Marge's car. Later, the grease was stolen from them by the Acne Shovel and Grease Co..[3]

After Bart accidentally ratted out Krusty to the IRS by exposing he was one of America's biggest tax cheats, the IRS took direct control of Krusty Burger and renamed it "IRS Burger", which resulted in many of the products names being changed to fit in with the IRS (i.e., "krusty burgers" to "tax burgers", an "IRSwich" with the option of withholding the lettuce, "dependent-size sodas", and a "FICA-ccino"), as well as mandating that they fill out schedule B, and it taking at least six to eight weeks to get the food.[4]

After the restaurant was proclaimed the "unhealthiest restaurant in the world", Krusty decided that the restaurant should serve the Mother Nature Burger, a vegetarian burger. Later, it turns out that the burger was made with tainted barley produced from Ogdenville, and anyone who consumed the burger received food poisoning.[5]

The restaurants are also known for cost-cutting measures, such as using discount books for booster seats.[6]


Krusty also appears to have some input into running the company, personally losing $44 million when a promotional tie-in, in which Krusty Burger was chosen the Official Meat-Flavored Sandwich of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, backfired due to a Soviet boycott, and Krusty Burger was forced to give away much more food than expected; Krusty expressed his displeasure by stating on live television that "I, personally am gonna spit into every fiftieth burger!"

Ironically, it has frequently been established that Krusty is not particularly fond of the food served, shown when recording a commercial (immediately before learning of his $44 million loss), he said, "Ewww! I almost swallowed some of the juice!" However, Krusty once bit into a Ribwich and said, "Mmm, I don't mind the taste!" In The Simpsons Movie, when filming a commercial for "The Clogger", he spits out the sandwich after filming and throws the rest of it away. For the Mother Nature burger commercial, Krusty uses footage of a customer taking a bite out of the sandwich just as he looks like he's about to.

Nor does he particularly care as to the quality of the food, the service, the hygiene, employees or the poor health of his consumers. Many of his workers are foreign slaves he tricked into coming over and locks in at night, and the only emotion he had at the end of Declan Desmond's documentary about his food which had led Desmond to turning obese was happiness at the prospect of getting turned into another breakfast item. In one episode, the intro for Eye on Springfield had a small clip with zoo animals going inside the restaurant, while on the other side, burgers were being sold to customers, implying that the food is made of zoo animals. Krusty immediately covers the camera with his hand.

He paid the mafia to keep other burger places like Burger King or McDonald's that actually serve real food away, but was then beaten up for not paying them money.

The chain also has a promotion character named Krusty Burglar, which is an obvious parody of the McDonaldland character, the Hamburglar.

It also has kids meals that come with toys, although the toys themselves were created in Krusty-owned sweat shops. At least one toy had a mosquito trapped inside, which resulted in the customer buying the toy being infected with the Panda Virus and force him to live in a bubble in order to avoid infecting everyone else.

Krusty Burger operates in thousands of locations across the United States including an unprofitable franchise on an unmanned off-shore oil platform. A Krusty Burger was seen in the city of Paris, France.[7] There was formerly a Krusty Burger at the Fast Food Boulevard, but it was destroyed along with the entire district after a chain reaction occurred where Homer threw away a leaking Car battery which resulted in the battery juice to burn through a gas main located directly below the trash container and throwing away a lit match that ignited the gas main.

Unfortunately for him, the burger is not what it seems. Within seconds, he transforms into a pale, grey-eyed zombie known as a Muncher. He bites Krusty, who also becomes a Muncher.
