Clock – Socialist Burgers Inc. reveals the untold story of when the
Swedish government decided to launch its own brand of hamburgers –
and how it all ultimately collapsed.

When McDonald's opened in Stockholm in 1973, people reacted in different ways: Some cheered, others protested, a few built bombs. One thing was clear: the hamburger was here to stay. The Swedish welfare restaurant corporation (yes!) SARA saw the potential and started Clock – "the all-time burger". 


Fast forward some 50 years. Sweden is now one of the most liberal and privatized countries in the world. The same nation who came up with government funded burgers now advocate venture capitalist schools.

So what happened in the timespan between the two?

And who puts pineapple on a burger?
