Beginning the week of April 2nd, and then continuing throughout the remainder of the year, Central Park will feature food and merchandising specials to celebrate their anniversary. The program kicks off during April by offering customers 25 cent French Fries on Fridays.

"We are excited to make this special offer available to our loyal customers of 25 years," said Dan Farrell, President of Central Park. "They are the reason we've been so successful all these years. Central Park's marketing formula is simply to offer the best burger and fries you can at the very best price possible. Our customers do not pay for a playground, a fancy dining room or a pricey piece of real estate. We're offering them a simple proposition: Come to Central Park and you'll get the best burger for the best price."

The first Central Park location opened in Chattanooga in 1982. On that day the lines stretched 20 cars deep at both windows, overwhelming the small crew. The familiar green rooftops began popping up all over Chattanooga and the southeast. Currently the company has over 35 franchises operating in eight states.

Ultimate Franchise Systems, Inc. owns the affiliate fast-casual chain. Ultimate Franchise Systems, Inc. (UFSJ) is a venture management company that develops ownership positions with mid-sized businesses, primarily in the restaurant industry.
