Elevation Burger to Open at Rutgers-New Brunswick




From Elevation Burger:

Organic burger franchise, Elevation Burger, is excited to announce that they will be opening a new location this year at The Yard at College Avenue, a 14-story university apartment building on the Rutgers University – New Brunswick campus.

In 2005, Hans Hess founded Elevation Burger with the goal of being more than just another burger chain. Hess wanted to create an environmentally-friendly, healthy menu that he’d be proud to serve his own children. Now boasting over 60 locations nationally and internationally, the company is devoted to delivering fresh and sustainably prepared food to its loyal consumers.

Elevation Burger specializes in quality, organic burgers and operates ethically with animal welfare, the environment and consumer health in mind. Their beef is 100% free-range, grass-fed, halal-certified and free of harmful antibiotics and pesticides. Their locations are built with renewable materials, their fresh cut french fries are cooked in ​Bertolli® ​heart-healthy olive oil and their veggie burgers are made with organic whole grains and seasoning. From salads and shakes, to a “Vertigo Burger” that allows patrons to choose up to ten patties, Elevation Burger has a little something for everyone!

“We’re excited to bring our organic burger concept to New Brunswick,” says Joe Hafez, Director of Operations for Elevation Burger New Brunswick. “We love Rutgers’ vibrant campus community and we’re looking forward to becoming a part of it.”

The Yard is a retail and residential space that hosts community gatherings and recreational events. The U-shaped building is located in the heart of the Rutgers-New Brunswick campus and features housing options for 442 students. Delineated by many as a meeting place for faculty, students and community members alike, The Yard is a hub of dining, culture and fun. The addition of Elevation Burger to The Yard will offer a delicious new destination for local residents and patrons. For more information about Elevation Burger, visit ​http://elevationburger.com/​.
