Elevation Burger to Open 2 More Locations


Elevation Burger is adding two more locations to its roster. The original, located in the City of Falls Church, is known for it's free-range, all organic, grass-fed beef burgers as well as their olive-oil fresh cut fries.

While they consistantly show up on D.C. area best lists, I've always been disappointed with the burgers from Elevation. They're too small to my liking, not cooked to order and come across as just average.

But, hey, if you're a fan, you'll be happy to know you'll soon be able to get your fix in Arlington's Lee-Harrison Shopping Center and the National Harbor in P.G. County.

Press release follows:


Arlington, VA [April 2, 2009] - Elevation Burger is opening two new franchise restaurants to add to its flagship corporate location in Falls Church, Virginia. They will celebrate the openings, one at the Lee Harrison Shopping Center in Arlington, Virginia, and another at Prince George’s National Harbor in Maryland, on May 2nd.

Elevation Burger, where “ingredients matter”, takes the fast casual burger experience to a whole new level by offering a menu of high quality, organic products, prepared fresh on-site daily in an environmentally and customer-friendly atmosphere. Elevation Burger uses only 100% USDA-certified organic, free range, grass fed beef, ground fresh on site daily, fresh-cut French fries fried in olive oil using a patented process as well as vegetarian selections and award-winning shakes and malts.

Continuing the theme of “ingredients matter”, each restaurant uses high-efficiency equipment, recycled, recyclable and renewable materials and will be certified under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system for developing and operating high-performance, sustainable buildings.

This is the first of three Elevation Burgers planned for the Washington, DC metropolitan area by franchisee, Ahmad Mahmoud, franchise owner at National Harbor. “Elevation Burger is a leading innovator in developing healthier menus and environmentally conscious restaurants, giving consumers better lifestyle choices for a good value,” said Mahmoud. Arlington’s franchisees, Neeraj and Lisa Vohra echo Mahmoud’s sentiments.

Virginia-based Elevation Burger has 24 locations under development in Texas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Since opening its first restaurant in 2005, Elevation Burger has received recognition in the Washingtonian and The Washington Post with “Best Shake” and “Best Burger” nominations.
