Cheeseburger in Paradise is a casual dining restaurant chain in the United States. The first restaurant opened on August 22, 2002, in Indianapolis, Indiana; as of 2010, the restaurant has 28 locations in 16 states. It is a theme restaurant named for the song 'Cheeseburger in Paradise' by American pop music singer Jimmy Buffett. The chain was a partnership of Buffett's company, the Orlando, FL-based Margaritaville Holdings LLC, and OSI Restaurant Partners, with Buffett licensing the name and Outback Steakhouse operating the franchising of restaurants. In September 2009, Cheeseburger in Paradise was sold to current owner Paradise Restaurant Group, LLC. Jimmy Buffett was only a Royalty Partner receiving 2% of profits until selling Paradise Restaurant Group the rights to the song 'Cheeseburger in Paradise'. Today, he receives 4% of all profits. Most of the menu items have an Island theme as well, such as the Pressed Burger, and the St. Barts Citrus Chicken.
