The Sweenster

(aka Jack Sweeney)

Jack dreamed up Burger Tours over a period of time spent watching his father travel across Texas and the country on his annual pilgrimage for great barbecue (Barbecue Tours). One day in 2008 or early 2009, he approached Dad with the idea for a "Cheeseburger Tour". Jack spent some time researching local burger joints (thanks Google Maps), and developing his criteria for a great burger.  In the summer of 2009, he was ready to embark on the first of many family-oriented burger tours.

Cathy

(aka Cathy Sweeney)

My bio, as it relates to this Burger Tours site, would be the woman behind the men in the Sweeney house!  During the day job, I spend my time in real estate development and private equity; what I do I learned through years of sweat and character building experiences.  I've been in Dallas since 1987, married to Steve, with two children.  Orange blooded, tea sippin' loyalist, who enjoys the comeraderie found in life's every day adventures. Our door is usually open to guests, and our minds open to new ideas to promote community involvement.
