What Makes Killer Burger Better?

If You’ve Ever Had A Killer Burger, You Know What Makes Us Special & We Know You’re Thinking About Having Another One Right Now!

What We Do

We make the best burgers imaginable. Everything we do serves our vision to change the way you and your friends think about burgers. That’s why we dedicate our time and resources to mastering this craft and teaching our crew and franchise partners to do the same. We want to introduce the country to what a burger should be, so when people think about a burger, they think of a Killer Burger.

The History

Killer Burger grew out of a passion to introduce the hungry public to the way burgers used to be (and still should be). Ten years ago, our Founder, TJ Southard, realized that the burgers around him had changed so much from the diner burgers of his childhood. The growing trend of gourmet and fusion burgers was creating a product so distant from the original hamburger that they weren’t even recognizable anymore. This disconnect motivated TJ to make a change. Somebody had to do it.

On September 27, 2010, he opened the first Killer Burger in Portland, OR to introduce today’s customers to a new definition of what a burger should be. From then on, he set out to create the best burgers imaginable and serve them in a fun, party environment where customers could leave behind the agendas of the world and relax with great food and excellent service. Now with locations across Oregon and Southern Washington, more and more customers are experiencing the rebirth of the American burger and loving every bite of it.

The Burgers

Fresh, never frozen, beef of the highest quality, grilled with the perfect sear to create a tender, flavorful patty every time. The builds range from the simple (The Purist) to the standard (The Classic) to the bizarre (The Peanut Butter Pickle Bacon). Each burger has its own unique flavor with the patty remaining at the center of all of them. Our burgers are at the core of everything we do.

What Sets Killer Burger Apart

The short and sweet is, we commit to the burger. We keep our operation simple, concise and effective. This leaves us with resources to train our franchisees to be experts at our craft and provide their shops with the support needed to be successful.

Training & Support

The Training
We have built a dialed-in operational platform and a certification-based training program for the entire staff – including you. You and your management team will spend three weeks between our corporate headquarters and our training store in Portland, OR. When it comes time to get your crew up to speed, they’ll have a team of knowledgable Killer Burger Trainers working with them in your store for two weeks of skill-building even before Opening Day. After that, we’re there for another two weeks of mastery training that ensures your store can make the right impression on your customers for the long haul.

The Support
When your store is up and running you’ll continue to receive constant support from one of our Performance Coaches. Your Coach will visit your store monthly to help you identify areas to improve and work with you to address any concerns you have. Meanwhile, our Marketing Department will be churning out “Happy Noise” to keep customers engaged and coming back through your doors.

The Design
Killer Burger has a versatile style and design that fits into a variety of locations. Whether you’re looking at the downtown business core, a suburban center, an urban neighborhood, or anything in between, our restaurant designs fit any space.

We’re Looking For Great Partners

Killer Burger has spent years testing and tweaking their operational systems and training programs to deliver the perfect burger to every customer. That means we don’t need franchisees with restaurant experience. We are looking for people who are motivated, who work hard and want their efforts to be rewarded. We team up with great partners who want a new direction, a chance to own their careers, and a way to guide their investment to success. If that’s you, we want to talk.
