17 Burger Concepts to Watch in 2017

A recent BurgerBusiness post questioned whether burger-category entrepreneurship is flagging, given a perceived decline in the number of new burger concepts opening this year.

Burger of the Month Specials: Dec. 2016

Burger of the Month Specials: Dec. 2016

Last month, I was ready for Thanksgiving-themed burgers, although there were many more than I expected. But for December, I anticipated a return to wildly non-thematic burger specials because we don’t do “Christmas burgers,” do we? Oh, we do. Proving that after seven years of BurgerBusiness.com I still have much to learn and still can […]

New Burger Concepts: The Class of 2016

New Burger Concepts: The Class of 2016

Is restaurant-industry entrepreneurism fading?

Here are some of the top Thanksgiving burgers at burger joints from A (The Avenue’s Feast burger) to Z (Zombie Burger + […]

Are More Beer Burgers on Tap?

Are More Beer Burgers on Tap?

When I predicted last year that 2016 would see more beer/burger collaborations I was thinking more about marketing, but burger joints had something else in mind. GrubGrade and ChewBoom have reported that Wendy’s is testing a Bacon & Beer Cheese Burger in Houston. This burger has applewood-smoked bacon, beer-cheese spread and caramelized onions on a […]

Tater Tots Triumph at Burger Bars

Tater Tots Triumph at Burger Bars

Tater tots have been around for more than 60 years, spending much of that time on school-lunch trays. It’s estimated that Americans eat 70 million pounds of the little darlin’s annually. And, like mac ‘n cheese, tots have moved from cafeterias to restaurants, and from sides to mains. This is especially true at burger joints, […]
