Chicago's Epic Burger Goes Beyond!

July 10, 2017

As if the summer couldn't get more sizzling, starting TODAY (JULY 19th), Epic Burger has officially become the first Chicago-based restaurant to serve the Beyond Burger!

Chicago locals can already find The Beyond Burger in the meat section of their Whole Foods, but will soon have the option to skip the kitchen altogether and order it out at all eight Epic Burger locations, Chicago's home-grown burger institution. Epic Burger's environmentally conscious approach and dedication to using fresh, sustainable sourced ingredients, makes them the perfect restaurant partner to debut The Beyond Burger to Chicago! We couldn't be happier to help Epic innovate in the world of fast casual dining with the addition of the groundbreaking plant-based Beyond Burger to their meat-focused menu!

"Founding a company with the tag line 'A More Mindful Burger' we are always looking for ways to enlighten people about how food is grown, raised, processed, transported and consumed', says David Friedman, Founder & CEO of Epic Burger, Inc. 'Epic Burger's purpose is to create a more mindful world. I believe that by partnering with Beyond Meat, a pioneer in the development of plant-based burgers we are doing just that. The Beyond Burger truly is the most mindful of burgers."

The Beyond Burger will be available at all eight Epic Burger Chicago-land locations (listed below). With a custom made-to-order style, the mouthwatering Beyond Burger combinations are endless, including a vegan lettuce wrap option.
