Sizzler Commercials Through The Years
Sizzler is a hot topic on the internet today after Mashable and others posted a commercial of theirs from 1991 that had been sitting on YouTube waiting to be appreciated. Sizzler was founded in 1958 by Del and Helen Johnson in Mission Viejo, California. The company originally was your typical family-style restaurant that featured home-cooked entrees and a salad bar. The company moved to an expanded buffet setup in the early 1980s. The company once had 270 locations throughout the United States, but after going through bankruptcy, quality and identity issues, the company is down to a much smaller number nowadays. Almost all of the current locations are located in the Western part of the United States.
