Burger 21 customers were thinking pink this October, helping the fast casual franchise raise over $22,000 to support the fight against breast cancer. The burger brand partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to donate $.21 from each sale of fountain drinks, signature and classic shakes, retro floats and kids fountain drinks, shakes and milks—all beverages sporting a pink straw.
Almost 128,000 pink straws were used over the course of the October fundraising, which will help support early detection, education, support services and research for those affected by breast cancer—a disease that more than 240,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with each year.
Burger 21 is an award-winning, “beyond the better burger” fast casual franchise with 24 locations open across the country and more than 16 in development in 12 states. Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, Burger 21 is a chef-inspired brand with offerings including 21 unique burger creations ranging from hand-crafted, freshly ground Certified Angus Beef to chicken, turkey, vegetarian, shrimp, and tuna burgers, fresh salads, all-beef hot dogs, chicken tenders and an extensive shake bar including hand-crafted shakes, floats, and sundaes.
