Krystal Celebrates 83 Years with 50-Cent Hamburger

    Industry News | October 7, 2015

    On Tuesday, October 13, from 11 a.m. until midnight, Krystal restaurants will treat guests to a very special offer.  In honor of the brand’s 83rd birthday and to thank its guests for their loyalty, Krystal will be offering its original iconic square Krystal hamburger for just 50 cents each beginning at 11 a.m. and continuing until midnight. There is no limit to the number of Krystals that can be purchased and the chain is gearing up to grill.

    “We prepare our signature Krystals in very small batches so that each and every one is fresh. We have several grills in our kitchen and we will keep them going all day,” says Jason Abelkop, CMO for Krystal.  “This is a great opportunity for everyone to come out and try the steamed-bun deliciousness of a Krystal—or two or three or four. More importantly, it’s also a chance for us to say thank you to the guests that have made us who we are today.”

    Krystal’s president and CEO couldn’t agree more. “A brand like ours does not continue to grow and thrive for 83 years without an incredibly loyal following. We never forget that guests are what brought us to this point. Marking our anniversary with a thank you is only fitting,” says Omar Janjua, president and CEO for the brand. “We hope to share what is truly special about this brand with everyone on the 13th.”
