To celebrate the release of The Founder, the Michael Keaton film about Ray Kroc of McDonald’s fame, BRGR.CO has launched a limited edition burger consisting of two blade steak patties with melted cheese, shredded iceburg lettuce, pickled gherkins and secret recipe BRGR.CO sauce on a triple layer sesame bun.
Nope, I haven’t seen the movie yet (it hits the big screen on the 17th), but I did try the burger last night at the BRGR.CO in Soho. Based on one of the world’s most recognized flavour profiles, The Founder BRGR is tasty indeed. It’s available now at both Soho and King’s Road BRGR.CO outlets until 26 Februrary and nicely priced at £7.50 (£10 with a side of fries).
Directed by John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks, The Blind Side) and starring Academy-Award nominated Michael Keaton (Birdman, Spotlight), Nick Offerman (Fargo, Welcome to Happiness, 21 Jump Street), John Carroll Lynch (The Invitation, Ted 2), Linda Cardellini (Mad Men), B.J Novak (Inglourious Basterds) and Laura Dern (99 Homes, Jurassic Park), The Founder tells the true story of how Ray Kroc (Keaton), a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.
