    Halo Burger is celebrating their 97th birthday on National Cheeseburger Day, Friday, September 18. While in-store celebrations are postponed until dining rooms reopen, Halo Burger is still offering a QP Burger for $1.97 in the month of September to individuals who are registered Halo Rewards members. Official dates for in-store celebrations have yet to be announced.

    Halo fans can enjoy a $1.97 QP two ways. First, Halo Burger is giving all Halo Rewards guests who are registered prior to September 18th a coupon for a $1.97 QP on the brand’s mobile app, redeemable at any Halo Burger restaurant from the 18th of September through the end of the month. To signup, individuals can visit www.haloburger.com.

    Second, coupons will be mailed to local customers during mid-September with a “golden-offer,” redeemable for a $1.97 QP beginning September 13th and valid into October.

    Halo Burger, originally called Kewpee Hotel Hamburgs’, began in 1923 in downtown Flint, Michigan, serving burgers from a box-car style restaurant on Harrison Street. Halo Country, LLC, who took over in 2016, has worked to return to the foundations Halo Burger was built upon when the Thomas family operated the brand. This has included bringing back the original recipe, sourcing more Michigan products and continuing the legacy of being a people-first company.

    Today, when you walk into any Halo Burger, you’re greeted by fresh ingredients and Midwestern staples. Buns are fresh baked and delivered to all restaurants numerous times throughout the week. Produce is hand-cut every morning and burgers are made from fresh, never frozen, 100% beef. Even the cookies are freshly baked each morning. Brands such as Vernors, Abbotts Meats, Sanders, Koegels, Metropolitan Baking Company, Wolverine Meats, Hausbeck Pickles, Paramount Coffee, Pioneer Sugar and Kelloggs can be found on the menu, bringing an array of flavors from our great state of Michigan.

    Those visiting Halo Burger find delight in the iconic Midwestern food staples, such as Olive Burgers, Boston Coolers, Wisconsin Cheese Curds, Sanders Bumpy Cake, Koegels Hot Dogs, Flint Coney Dogs, Mackinac Island Fudge Shakes, Dino Nuggets, and when in season Traverse City Cherry Shakes and Pies as well as the Flint City Bucks Burger.

    “People travel from all over the world to enjoy Halo Burger. It’s not uncommon for us to hear an individual traveled over an hour to dine at one of our restaurants,” says Olivia Ross, Director of Marketing at Halo Burger. “We’ve become a destination for travelers; it’s part of what makes Halo Burger so unique, the community of people across the globe who have a deep love for this brand.”

    Beyond the menu, Halo Burger has expanded their community outreach efforts, sponsoring little leagues, tournaments and other local events including the Crim Festival of Races, Back to the Bricks, Pink Night Palooza and more. Since 2016, the brand has given over $125,000 back to local charities ensuring that the money donated stays local to help people in the community.

    Halo Burger intends to continue their legacy of good food for good people and has plans to expand the brand in the near future. For now, they’re focusing on celebrating 97 years of serving up heavenly burgers, fries and milkshakes by offering guests a $1.97 QP Burger redeemable between September 18th – September 30th exclusively on the Halo Burger mobile app. The brand will announce a date for an in-store celebration once it has been determined.
