Periodically, the big burger chains (in the UK) sell indian style speciality burgers. This actually means that there is something worth eating there for a while. Unfortunately these are time limited offers so after 2 weeks we're back to blando-offal burgers.
What I propose is either a separate chain
or a subsidiary of a larger chain selling delicious curry burgers all the time.

||Or how about a way to have snack Indian food which is cheaper and avoids the need to set foot in burger bar in the first place... buy a pakora, a samosa or a bhaji and sandwich it between two mini naan, or bits of a normal naan. These have the advantage of being available in many small supermarkets and sandwich bars, they are ok to eat cold, and they are self-sufficient (carbo+protein+vegetable+fat (almost all your major food groups, all you need now is a beer and a cigarette and I'm sure you'll be happy)). Chips with dahl dip though... mmm.
||Only this weekend I saw a new fast food place in our local
town (UK) called "Curry in a Hurry". I was only driving past
so I didn't sample the place, but it looked remarkably like
a Burger Bar - not sure if there was a drive through, but it
fits the idea, sorry.
||Around here it's either feast or phantom. I can't make myself believe you'd sell enough to cover your rent.
||I think it's a great idea, sure to sell millions, I just feel
sorry that someone else came up with the idea "Curry in a
Hurry" It looked like a very large outlet and was also
extremely busy. Buy shares instead?
||On one hand, I love the idea--Curry burgers all the time sound good. On the other hand, this idea is totally derivative--saying that there should be a minor variation on a certain kind of restaurant is hardly inventing something, just refining it.
||Still an idea though, so valid.
||There's a "Hurry Curry of Tokyo" at Sawtelle and Olympic (Little Tokyo) in L.A.
Vivisimo Search for "Hurry Curry" doesn't return a result for "H... C... " all by it's lonesome in US - there is one in Rose Bay, Australia. It'd go over big in Chicago what with Harry Carey ...(R.I.P.)
24 hrs. later - Hurry Curry of Tokyo in L.A. even got mentioned in current issue of Rolling Stone.
Yeah, we're hipsters
