Elevation Burger Takes Fast Food to a Healthy Delicious Place: It’s such good news
I’ve been saying that until we get the sustainable food movement scaled up to mass distribution, it is nothing more than Marie Antoinette’s cry. But voila. An empassioned man and his wife had a dream of hamburgers that are healthy and now they’ve got 28 stores in the chain and you can get a hamburger that is healthy and delicious. What a concept.
Hans Hess is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Elevation Franchise Ventures, LLC. He fell in love with the taste of beef at the age of four, when his mother cooked a London Broil, which he then proceeded to ask for every single day for the next five years. As an adult, Hans wondered why he couldn’t find a burger in the rest of America like the ones he loved in his native California. In 2005, he decided to make the burger of his dreams himself. He founded Elevation Burger to spread the gospel of great-tasting, 100% organic burgers made from grass-fed beef that are better for you and better for the environment.
Elevation Burgers are made with grass fed beef, served on a potato bun and napped with real cheddar cheese. You can have it dressed to order. Want lettuce and tomatoes? They can do that. Want secret sauce? They’ve got one. Want fries with that? They have a patented method for cooking fries in olive oil that are yummy and healthy.
What’s not to love?
And the big idea that Mr. Hess got from his lovely CPA wife, April, was to create a franchise business so that this carefully orchestrated business could reproduce itself. So, as we speak there are 28 locations and growing every day. April grew up in Dallas, Texas where the motto is can-do, so she is a perfect complement to Hans, who trained as a physicist before he jumped into the hamburger biz.
These people pay attention to every detail, and it shows.

They’ve thought of everything. The interior of the stores are all natural, friendly with bamboo flooring and all natural surfaces and comfy seats for the kids and the parents. It’s the sort of fast food experience everybody should be wishing for.
I’m going to lean on Hans and April to get those sodas out of their stores, the ones sweetened with high fructose corn syrup. All the good they’ve done with their burgers and fries is simply wrecked by adding a sugary soda.
OK. You guys, you know you can do this. Come up with drinks the public will buy that won’t contribute to the obesity epidemic in this country. And that means NO HFCS. period. You can do this. I have all faith in you. The next time I walk into an Elevation Burger joint, I expect to see those HFCS sodas GONE.
The Hess family is certainly proving to be a force in the sustainable food movement. They figured out how to make the hamburger healthy, and I know they’ll continue to be thought leaders in the sustainable food movement and get ride of those toxic sodas.Pin It
