Jake Hickton, BurgerMonger® General Partner announces newest location to open on December 9; Job Fair November 25-27 and 29-30.
BRANDON, FL – (November 21, 2013) BurgerMonger®, a fresh, fast, casual, family-friendly gourmet hamburger restaurant, is opening in its third location in Tampa Bay and bringing its award-winning flavor to Brandon on December 9th. BurgerMonger® features a classic American menu at a price affordable for today’s family - the difference is in the gourmet quality and taste.
Headquartered in Carrollwood, with locations in Wesley Chapel, FL and Willow Grove, PA, BurgerMonger® has garnered praise from Tampa Bay Times, whose readers voted BurgerMonger® the “#1 Burger in Tampa Bay” in its annual survey in 2012, beating out seasoned competitors like Burger21, Five Guys and Red Robin.
With the emphasis on the finest quality ingredients, the restaurant’s 6 ounce Burger Monger starts at $6.99 including choice of cheese and an impressive variety of toppings and condiments. The premium ground beef that goes into the burgers and hot dogs has a story all its own.
BurgerMonger® is unique in the fact that it serves 100 percent Japanese HeartBrand Akaushi Kobe beef. For over a century this beef has only been available in Japan. In 1994, one breeding herd was exported from Japan and launched the HeartBrand Beef line in the states.
A BurgerMonger® partner, HeartBrand is the sole provider of beef for all BurgerMonger® burgers and hot dogs.
“We rise above the competition to feature the best, most flavorful ingredients,” said Hickton. “No other restaurant touting Kobe beef comes close to this 100% pure Japanese beef. Our beef is 2 to 3 grades above USDA Prime and is arguably the healthiest ground beef on the planet.”
BurgerMonger® also serves antibiotic and hormone-free natural Coleman chicken, Idaho Imperial Premium Grade Burbank potatoes cooked into natural beef tallow, not oil, a veggie burger, and hand-dipped Häagen-Dazs® shakes and malts, as well as beer and wine.
“We only make food that we would love to eat ourselves,” said Hickton.
Guests have over 38 unique standard and premium toppings to completely customize their Monger meal.
Building on the success of its three other restaurants, the newest BurgerMonger® is located at 903 E. Bloomingdale Avenue, on the corner of Bell Shoals and Bloomingdale.
“We are thrilled to be opening our fourth location in under three years. We are in the ideal location to embrace the neighboring businesses and residents,” said Hickton. “We look forward to meeting our new friends in the community and adding Brandon as the latest member of our BurgerMonger® family.”
BurgerMonger® is currently hiring for cooks and cashiers and will be holding a job fair on November 25-27 and November 29-30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Brandon restaurant.
Applications will be given upon registration and job seekers are encouraged to bring a resume to the event.
"We are looking for hardworking, enthusiastic, friendly people who love to serve," explained Hickton. "Of course, BurgerMonger® is about the extraordinary food, but it is also about making that personal connection with our guests."
BurgerMonger® is open Sunday - Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and extended hours to 11 p.m. on Friday – Saturday.
