Opened May 6, 1964 as the fast food restaurant/burger joint chain Burger Chef
 
In October 1974, UNC grad student Roy Piscitello opened Breadman's restaurant in the building. Over time the structure was expanded to the north. In 1992 Breadman's moved (across Rosemary Street).
 
Was later various offices. The building (the entire block, actually) was demolished in 2013. It is now the location of one of the massive new Chapel HIll projects: Shortbread Lofts. <<*FIVE-OVER-ONE ALERT*>>
