Stinky was a fry cook who owned Stinky Burgers. Stinky made horrible burgers for various kids to eat. He was the only employee there.
As karma for his mistreatment of Plankton and Mr. Krabs, Stinky was arrested and his restaurant was then shut down by the Health Department for numerous ethical and health code violations. Despite his horrible tasting food, he made a major profit from his business however, since it was the only burger joint in town.
Later, young Eugene H. Krabs and Sheldon J. Plankton took over the restaurant. Mr. Krabs, who saw how successful Stinky was, wanted to earn "a fatter stack of loot." Plankton had the goal of gaining his classmates' "li-spect."
Mr. Krabs and Plankton turned out to be successful and ended up receiving lots of customers.
