VANCOUVER, Wash. (March 5, 2019) – Burgerville is pleased to introduce a brand-new milkshake to its rotating menu of seasonal favorites with ingredients sourced from the Pacific Northwest. The Almond Butter Milkshake is a delicious treat that is available now for a limited time throughout Burgerville’s 42 restaurant locations.
“Our Almond Butter Milkshake melds the nutty flavors of roasted almonds and cashews with a touch of Oregon honey for sweetness,” explained Chef Becky McGrath. “The almond cashew butter is then blended with vanilla ice cream and topped with a dollop of Oregon strawberry jam and real whipped cream for an enticing combination.”
Burgerville chose to partner with two respected local companies on the new shake: Portland-based Ground Up PDX and Hood River-based Oregon Growers.
Based in Portland, Ground Up PDX makes delicious nut butters that are peanut-free, while providing employment opportunities to women overcoming adversity. The company hires women in transition to work part-time, providing them with job skills, on-the-job mentoring, and ultimately the confidence to transition into their next phase of life.
Located in Hood River, Oregon Growers produces farm-direct food from Pacific Northwest ingredients, cultivating long-term partnerships with regional growers while encouraging and supporting sustainable growing and operating practices. Its strawberry jam used in Burgerville’s new shake is made with fresh, peak-of-the-season Oregon strawberries from the Willamette Valley.
Established in 1961 and headquartered in Vancouver, Washington, Burgerville is an innovative and industry-leading restaurant company with 42 locations throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington. Over 1,500 employees strong, the hometown favorite brings guests seasonal, local food from 989 Northwest family farms and ranches. Burgerville is built on a tradition based in its mission to “Serve with Love.”
