With millions of Americans joining one of the fastest growing diet trends in the world—keto & grain-free—international burger chain, BurgerIM, announced the launch of its newest sandwich, the Keto Burger. The company has turned to breakthrough bread startup, Unbun Foods, to supply the grain-free, keto-friendly buns. Unbun offers a healthy, low-carb alternative to lettuce buns or traditional chemical laden gluten-free buns so that consumers can still enjoy their favorite meals without compromising taste or quality.

Seeing similar explosive growth as Beyond Meat – Unbun Foods has started to displace the traditional and gluten-free bakery products with its grain-free, keto friendly buns, bread, tortillas and pizza crusts. The Keto Bun by Unbun contains 5g net carbs, 10g of protein, 12g of fiber and 240 calories.

The Keto Burger will be available at 80 BurgerIM locations across California with immediate plans to roll out nationwide in October. Made with two patties, two slices of cheese, toppings of choice, and the Keto Bun by Unbun, the burger will be priced at $10.99. Customers looking for a low-carb option for other burgers or sandwiches can also upgrade to the Keto Bun by Unbun for $1.99.

“Unbun together with BurgerIM is the perfect marriage,” says BurgerIM COO Oded Talmor. “We work very hard to keep our promise to our customers of ‘gourmet burgers for everyone’, and I’m so excited that we can take that promise to the next level with the Keto Bun by Unbun. Having an amazing burger in a real bun that tastes amazing and is low-carb is a game-changer. No more compromising for lettuce wraps!”

BurgerIM is a fast-growing burger franchise with 200 open locations and 350 currently being built in just three years. The addition of Unbun’s guilt-free bun aligns perfectly with the restaurant’s already robust health conscious menu featuring eleven different patty options including wagyu, salmon, and falafel.

“At Unbun, we are obsessed with innovation in order to provide our customers with better-for-you bread alternatives, so they never have to compromise quality.  Our products not only taste good, but are good for you,” says Gus Klemos, Founder of Unbun Foods.  “We are proud to be partnering with BurgerIM as trailblazers to provide Keto Buns across the country. Now all Americans have the opportunity to enjoy a BurgerIM burger without the guilt.”
