Burgers are a staple in many people’s diets throughout the world. Often times, people are searching for burgers when they’re looking for a quicker solution to their hunger. But these days, burgers are becoming much more sophisticated, and restaurants everywhere are starting to follow suit in the better-burger trend.
Arthur Bovino is the executive editor of The Daily Meal for its Eat and Dine column, and he has witnessed the boom in better burger brands popping up all over the nation.
“The better-burger trend has certainly been on the move,” said Bovino. “As the chef-driven burger trend continues to strengthen, it’s really come out of the shadows of the golden arches and the king’s crown.”
Burgers and their creators across the nation continue to focus on unique ingredients and quality, and they are even adding other side-items to the menus to stay at the forefront of a hungry person’s—and potential investor’s—mind. Here are the top 25 brands leading the pack in the booming burger segment.
