CaliBurger, a California-fresh burger institution is officially opening its doors in Maryland. Fresh food enthusiast and franchisee Sumeet Goel chose a vibrant, bustling community in Columbia, MD as the home for CaliBurger's first Maryland franchise; boasting a sleek, "CALI" facade. Sandwiched in between intriguing details regarding an interactive gaming system for guests and their procurement of the freshest ingredients used to prepare the best food possible, Goel indicated a moderately aggressive growth plan for CaliBurger to sweep through Maryland, from Baltimore to Montgomery County and even into Washington, DC.
At this juncture, you are probably wondering 'why such hype for just another burger place?'. The truth of the matter is that this isn't just another burger place, it's another California burger place... but it's so much more than just that. CaliBurger was born in Shanghai with the intention of feeding expatriates longing for some good 'ol American comfort food. The concept quickly gained momentum throughout the Eastern Hemisphere and eventually circled back to the Western Hemisphere. CaliBurger's menu brings us back to burger basics; except with the freshest, most flavorful components. Whether it is a juicy double Cali cheeseburger (CaliDouble) or a marinated chicken breast sandwich with all the fixings, I recommend the hand-cut, California French Fries and a creamy, dreamy hand spun milkshake for the true CaliBurger experience!
Speaking of experience, where else can you pick up a quality burger made to order and enjoy an interactive gaming experience with guests at other tables? As part of their technology-forward approach, CaliBurger has incorporated the HashtagBlitz game into their guests' dining experience. Guests use their Smartphones to participate in a hangman-style game using the store's "FunWall". Another game, similar to MineCraft is available to keep the kiddos engaged.
Now you can eat good and play hard with a clear conscience! Sumeet Goel has many commendable practices that he has carefully woven into the fabric of his business. He treats all of his associates as an extension of his own family and takes pride in stimulating the local economy by creating local jobs, offering fair living wages and full time benefits and promoting from within.
His conscientious approach to running his franchise is echoed in his philanthropic efforts. Each month, CaliBurger Maryland will choose a new organization to sponsor. CaliBurger provides them with the proceeds from an assigned day as well as awareness within the community. CaliBurger is open to the public tomorrow and will be donating their proceeds to the Special Olympics. Stop by and treat yourself to the full CaliBurger experience!
CaliBurger's grand opening will take place on May 16, 2016.
