    It’s one of the first plant-based shakes to be offered year-round at a restaurant chain.

    Burgerville and Coconut Bliss, two Oregon-based companies, have collaborated on a brand new100 percent plant-based, dairy-free ice cream shake. The Bliss Shake is available starting today at nearly all Burgerville locations throughout Oregon and Washington.

    Made with coconut milk and sweetened with organic cane sugar, the soft serve blend was created by Coconut Bliss exclusively for Burgerville. It’s one of the first plant-based shakes to be offered year-round at a restaurant chain.

    “Our guests have been requesting plant-based shakes for years,” says Chef Becky McGrath, director of food production at Burgerville. “It was so fun to work side by side with Coconut Bliss to develop this exclusive soft serve delicious shake. We’re thrilled to now be able to offer our guests both dairy and non-dairy options every day.”

    For the same price as its traditional dairy milkshakes, guests can order any available shake flavor—including Oregon Fresh Berry Shakes, which will be available in June—by saying, “Make it a Bliss.” The Bliss Shakes will be made on a dedicated Bliss machine in each location that is separate from the traditional dairy milkshake machine.

    Coconut Bliss is also excited about this special product launch with Burgerville, as it marks the company’s first foray into the fast-casual restaurant sector. The Eugene-based company strategically chose Burgerville as its partner in this important venture, since the companies share similar customer bases as well as an ongoing commitment to producing high-quality food.

    “As a producer of organic, ethically-produced ice cream that’s 100 percent plant-based, Coconut Bliss knows the value of doing the right thing, which isn’t necessarily the easy thing,” says Kim Gibson Clark, president and CEO of Coconut Bliss. “That’s why we believe that we have found the perfect partner in Burgerville for this new plant-based shake. Burgerville is known for its fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, as well as for its commitment to sustainable business practices. We love all that and see Burgerville aligning well with the Coconut Bliss brand, as well as the quality of our ice cream.”

    Clark adds, “Coconut Bliss is happy to be part of the movement to add plant-based foods, and other alternative menu items, to more dining options and locations in order to promote healthy living and environmentally-conscious eating practices.”

    Burgerville and Coconut Bliss guests and fans will be happy to know that Bliss Shakes are being served at all Burgerville locations—with the exception of Corvallis and Burgerville Signature in Tigard—across Oregon and Southwest Washington.

    Established in 1961, Burgerville, headquartered in Vancouver, Washington, has 42 locations throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.
