The classic hamburger is a staple for many people who go to a restaurant. You also enjoy a great hamburger and want to incorporate this American staple in your own restaurant menu so you can draw in a larger crowd and have more happy customers than ever.
The hamburger is created in many ways, using a variety of meats. From beef to turkey, the hamburger has been reinvented so often that it's common to see a gourmet burger on an otherwise predictable menu. Why create a handcrafted hamburger for your restaurant's menu? Here are reasons to use this tactic when creating a yummy burger that your entire community can enjoy.
You get more creative freedom
A handcrafted burger is essentially this: a burger that has been molded and created by hand rather than frozen from a mass-produced food plant. When your customers see a handcrafted burger on their menus, they will know that your burgers are made from freshly ground meat — whether you buy your meat already ground or you grind your beef and other meats yourself — with your own special twist on ingredients and spices to make each patty unique.
You can feature a whole-beef patty for your handcrafted burgers or use a blend of turkey and other meats to create a delicious, one-of-a-kind burger your customers will enjoy. Play around with different variations of burger that you like to come up with a concoction that is sure to please.
You get a more unique menu
Handcrafted often means a lot of thought and special care are put into the offered menu item, which foodies and other people who love your menu items will appreciate. A more unique menu, even if you only offer one or two types of handcrafted burgers, will help create more offerings that can bring in a new and curious crowd. Your regulars will also appreciate your more unique menu items since they will enjoy the change of pace your restaurant's new and improved menu design.
Whether you just want to improve your restaurant's image or you have a hankering for offering more unique and tasty foods on your menu, a crowd favorite like handcrafted burgers is a great place to start. Play around with the different offerings you have available to you and pay attention to customer feedback. You can change out some menu items for others if you see that some burgers are selling better with your patrons than others.
