Elevation Burger, the rapidly growing, fast-casual restaurant serving great-tasting 100% USDA-certified organic, 100% grassfed, free range burgers, opened its first-ever location in South Miami last week. Recognized as the nation’s first organic hamburger chain since opening in Falls Church, VA in 2005, Elevation Burger offers a healthier, delicious alternative to the usual fast-food burger.
Elevation Burger is re-thinking an American- classic and redefining the fast food gestalt with its focus on offering quality food that is better for customers and for the environment. In addition to amazing organic hamburgers, Elevation Burger offers two kinds of veggie burgers, fries cooked in hearthealthy olive oil and hand – scooped shakes. The chain’s warm, welcoming, and well-appointed restaurants provide an elevated dining experience for families and kids, health-conscious consumers and on-the-go urbanites.
The entrepreneurs behind the new Downtown Dadeland location are French transplants Magali and Stephane Vannier de Langre, who purchased the Miami-Dade franchise rights and have plans to open 5 locations by 2015. After hearing about the Elevation Burger concept and its healthy and environmental focus, the Vannier’s were immediately interested in coming on board to bring the chain to Miami.
“We have lived all over the world, in places where eating Organic is the norm. With Elevation Burger we found an opportunity to do what we love and provide a healthy food alternative that is often hard to find at affordable prices for the entire family,” said Magali.
“We also really liked the fact that Elevation Burger is committed to environmentally sustainable practices and to being part of the communities it serves,” added Stephane.
The new Dadeland location features monthly and weekly specials including Teacher Tuesdays, Uniformed Officer Days, Senior Citizen Discounts, Little League/Sports Days, College Days and “Fun” Raising Wednesdays where they will donate 10% of the days sales to a different local charity each week. In addition, they will be sponsoring and participating in activities around the community to promote sustainability in schools.
South Miami’s Elevation Burger is located at 8975 SW 72nd Place. The Franchise is the second in Miami-Dade and first in South Miami. Both are managed and operated by Magali and Stephane Vannier de Langre and their group EBM2. The rapidly expanding chain is set to have over 100 locations by the end of 2013.
