BurgerBusiness Is Closed; Thanks for Coming

Filed under Business

Turn off the grill. The final post has been added to BurgerBusiness, which now suspends publication (the Killer Burger Recipes page remains active). It’s time. I always will be proud of the site I created in February 2009, and proud of the readers and advertisers it has attracted since then. I have met or spoken with many incredible men and women in the industry who work very hard to serve the very best burgers in the best possible environment, and I admire you. Because any day that includes a burger is a better day, I’ll continue to show up regularly at your burger joints. Thank you to all.

    say it ain’t so.

    Sorry to see you end this run.

    Oh, Scott, say it isn’t so. I have found BB to be one of the truly indispensable reads in the business. Can’t tell you how much I’ve looked forward to each issue, nor can I tell you how much you’ll be missed. The burger biz will somehow be a little less fun without you. I hope the restaurant industry will continue to benefit from your talent and insight, albeit through another vehicle. All good wishes.

  13. Daaang, that’s a surprise and a bummer. I really enjoyed this site and seeing all the creative burgers out there. Good luck in the future.

    This is such a bummer to hear. I’m not in the business, just a fan. One of my friends turned me on to your site a few years ago and I’ve enjoyed the stories. Wish you all the best in your future, but sad to see this go.

  24. Very sorry to hear this. You gave me a great interview for my fast food story last year, and I appreciated your insight, enthusiasm and expertise in this field. You championed the little guy, the oversized and the chains with the same fair, balanced objectivity. You will be missed.

    I’ve been a regular visitor for a few years, sorry to see it end.
