Company Summary

The gourmet burger market is exploding across America, and The Blacksburger will rival the best in the country. Today's college student is decreasingly impressed with late night pizza deals and cheap fast food options. They are looking for great, unique, focused restaurants that understand student's tight budgets yet expensive tastes. What is needed is novel, creative, yet approachable food. That's what the Blacksburger brings to the table.
