Two interesting things:
- Even in a recession, consumers clamor for more upscale burgers:
“American consumers take their burgers seriously,” Technomic executive vice president Darren Tristano said in a statement. “It may be one area of food service where they are less willing to cut back, despite the current economic environment. They expect to pay more for a higher quality, better burger, and are willing to do so because the value proposition is heightened.”
- The World’s Record for the Biggest Burger was broken/set/whatever. It’s 185 pounds, costs $499, but is free if you eat it in 20 minutes. If you do eat it in 20 minutes, let me know and I’ll get you my dad’s number since you’ll likely need cardiac care.
