nice buns

Hey Everyone,

The quest to make real food has made it a year of lots of change for us. (From Kale & Quinoa Bowls all the way down to our ketchup, we've tried to push ourselves to make everything we do better fit our vision.)

And today, we officially start another big change -- our whole wheat buns.

Quinzani's, the family-run bakery we've worked with since we started, is now baking a special, artisanal, multi-grain bun for us. Our new bun tastes better and is better for you because it's made with more whole, real ingredients (like roasted sunflower, millet and flax seeds).

Because we've known the Quinzani's for over a decade, we know their story makes the bread they bake even better. So, we made this video so you could know it too.

Since we want our family to try our new buns ASAP, we're giving you a little something when you buy any burger or sandwich this week. To get a FREE order of hand-cut, oven-finished fries or sweet potato fries, just scan your Family ID (your app, key-chain, or code below) before we close on Sunday, December 7th AND BUY A BURGER OR SANDWICH on our new bun.

Anthony & Jon

P.S. Give the gift of real food for the holidays and get yourself a little gift too. Buy a $25 gift card online or in any of our restaurants before New Year's and we'll kick in another $5 card free.

P.P.S. Help us out and we'll buy you a drink. Vote for our foundation's next grant recipient of $4,000. (For voting, we'll send a free drink next week - i.e. homemade lemonade or tea, Maine Root soda, or bottled water.)

It was a miracle on the scale of witnessing our grill-guy, Cremildo, turn fries into wine. It never should have happened. But, it did. Uncle Faris threw out the first pitch at Fenway in the Summer of '05
