Elevation Burger Franchise

Elevation Burger is a franchise for a restaurant serving organic burgers, fries, and milkshakes. It was founded in 2002 by Hans Hess. He could not find a burger that was as good as he remembers it from back when he left California in 1999.

With this, he saw an opportunity on making one himself. He wanted something that stands out from the rest. He wanted it sustainable, organic, and fresh. He spent three years researching and developing the product. In 2005, he and his wife opened the first Elevation Burger.

How does their products compare to others?

First is the size. They don’t make it too big so that the taste of the bun would not be competing with the taste of the meat. Second is the meat. They say that their meats are natural in flavour because theirs is not corn-fed beef like all other mass produced meat. Third is that their products are organic. They put the people first before profit.

What is on the menu at the Elevation Burger?

Their burgers are 100% USDA certified organic, grass fed, and free-range beef. They have the Elevation Burger which has double meat and double real cheddar cheese. The cheeseburger has one meat and one real cheddar cheese. You can also have a hamburger that has one meat. Another is the Vertigo Burger which you can stack up with three to 10 patties. They have two types of burgers. One has fire roasted taste and the other tastes like veggies and fully vegan.

They also have the half the guilt burger which is one meat patty and one veggie patty. For salads, they have the Elevation salad. They also have the grilled cheese sandwich in which you can add any toppings. Toppings choices are wide and it includes lettuce, ketchup, pickles, tomatoes, mustard, caramelized onions, raw onions, mayo, balsamic mustard, elevation sauce, and hot pepper relish. You may add blue cheese dressing as well. It may be too long to list down those you may like so you can opt for their “original” toppings which include pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, and elevation sauce. If you don’t want bread, you can have your burger wrapped in lettuce instead. For the sides, you can have fresh fries which is cooked in 100% olive oil, side salad with one dressing, mandarin oranges, and large cookie or three cookies.
