News Release: Burger Republic Has Top-Rated Burger in Tennessee According to TripAdvisor

Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 6, 2018 – On the heels of being named one of the top 10 burgers in America, Nashville-based Burger Republic made another prestigious TripAdvisor list: having the best burger in Tennessee.

TripAdvisor recently announced the top-rated burger restaurants in every state, based on site reviews. The list accounts for ratio and quality of the burger reviews compared to overall ratings, as well as quality and quantity of reviews received in the past year. Featured restaurants have a minimum of 4 out of 5 bubbles, 100 reviews and 10 locations or less as of June 2018: https://www.usatoday.com/picture-gallery/travel/ experience/america/fifty-states/2018/08/16/tripadvisors-best-burgers-in-every-state/37503011/

“We are honored to be sought out by tourists coming into Nashville, looking for a premium burger,” said Drew Jackman, who partnered with another industry veteran, Jeff Warne, to create Burger Republic. “I think it reflects the growing trend to visit independent restaurants that are not duplicated in other markets. We are proud of our Nashville roots and being ‘fiercely independent.’”

About Burger Republic

Burger Republic was created to provide the best-tasting burgers and beverages at an affordable price. To make the perfect burger, Burger Republic starts with 100-percent fresh Certified Angus Beef that is hand-formed into a patty and cooked-to-order on a flat-top grill to sear in the juicy flavor. The beef is ground using a combination of cuts: brisket, chuck and short rib. Local and regional products play a key role in the line-up, such as Benton’s bacon and Charpier’s brioche buns.

For non-beef eaters, other sandwich possibilities include an all-natural ground turkey burger, an Ahi Tuna burger, all-natural chicken breast fillet, and a savory vegetarian patty made in-house with red beans. Burgers and sandwiches are paired with a hearty side. Selections include crisp “tator tots,” French fries, homemade chips, and creamy mac and cheese topped with Benton’s bacon. Lighter options include mixed salad greens and vegetable of the day. Several entrée salads round out the menu.

Beverages receive special treatment at Burger Republic, which offers 30 rotating craft beers on tap from America’s best brewers as well as 25+ milkshakes – from ice cream made in-house and handspun in both spiked and non-alcoholic concoctions.

The first Burger Republic opened May 23, 2012 in the Lenox Village Town Center development, off Nolensville Road in southern Davidson County. The second location opened Jan. 23, 2014 in the Pine Street Flats building in the Gulch area of downtown Nashville. A third opened Jan. 12, 2017 at the Providence Station complex in Mt. Juliet. The fourth location opened Oct. 7, 2017 at the Fountains at Gateway complex on Medical Center Parkway in Murfreesboro.

Since the first Burger Republic opened six years ago, it has consistently been recognized in the best burger categories by readers of The Tennessean, Nashville Scene, and Nashville Lifestyles. Recent accolades came via MSN: https://www.msn.com/en-us/foodanddrink/restaurantsandnews/the-50-best- burgers-in-america-by-state/ss-BBBd31R?ocid=spartanntp&fullscreen=true#image=42 and TripAdvisor: https://tripadvisor.mediaroom.com/2018-07-11-TripAdvisor-Serves-Up-Americas-10-Best-Restaurants-for- Burgers.

NEWS RELEASE: Burger Republic Named Top 10 Best Burger in America By TripAdvisor

Nashville, Tenn., July 16, 2018 – Burger Republic, an original and “fiercely independent” local concept specializing in gourmet burgers, American craft beers and hand-spun milkshakes, was named one of the top 10 burgers in America according to a new list from TripAdvisor that analyzed millions of user reviews and rankings. It is the only top 10 burger in Tennessee.

“What an honor,” said Drew Jackman, who partnered with another industry veteran, Jeff Warne, to create Burger Republic. “Our motto is to ‘defend quality’ in everything we do, and this ranking is an affirmation on that promise. It reflects the work of our fantastic team, and we are truly humbled to be listed among America’s best of the best!”

Jackman added that the ranking is especially gratifying, given TripAdvisor’s status of being the world’s largest travel site. “I think this means travelers in particular want an authentic, local place to go for a premium burger — not something they can also find in their own home town. As Nashville continues to experience a proliferation of burger concepts from other cities, it’s nice to be recognized as a great locally owned and ‘available-only-here’ place to eat and drink. Plus, we offer a full-service dining experience, which is different than a lot of restaurants these days.”

NEWS RELEASE: Burger Republic Caters to Canines

Patios in all four Nashville-area locations now open to dog lovers

Nashville, Tenn., July 2, 2018 – Burger Republic, an original and “fiercely independent” local concept specializing in gourmet burgers, American craft beers and hand-spun milkshakes, has received permits for each of its four area locations to allow pooches on its patios.

Servers will offer canine customers bowls of water and complimentary doggy treats.

“Requests to make our patios dog-friendly have increased tremendously over the past few years,” said Drew Jackman, who partnered with another industry veteran, Jeff Warne, to create Burger Republic. “It makes sense to cater to the canine-loving crowd and give them a reason to ‘sit and stay’ with us. Even Instragram-famous Doug the Pug wandered by recently to check out our patio in the Gulch, so it’s officially broken in.”

PRESS RELEASE: Burger Republic Celebrates Nashville Predators’ Stanley Cup Run with Promotions

Burger and Beer

Featuring “Gold Monster” Shake, Stanley Cup Commemorative Beer Mug, and Replica Trophy onsite at Gulch Location

Nashville, Tenn., May 29, 2017 – Burger Republic, a fiercely independent and original concept specializing in gourmet burgers, American craft beers and handspun milkshakes, is celebrating the Nashville Predator’s NHL championship playoff with specialty beverage promotions at its area locations and a homemade replica of the Stanley Cup on display at its Gulch location. Specials include:

• The Gold Monster: In honor of the loudest crowd in the NHL and the Western Conference champs, Burger Republic presents this oversized spiked milkshake. The Gold Monster consists of homemade vanilla ice cream, brown sugar syrup, caramel and bourbon – crowned with a cookie and a unique Stanley Cup topper.

• A 25-oz. commemorative Stanley Cup mug that is available for refills at a discounted price throughout the NHL finals.

In addition, owner Drew Jackman worked with several employees over the Memorial Day weekend to make a life-size replica of the Stanley Cup out of materials purchased at Tractor Supply Co. The “cup” will be on display at Burger Republic’s Gulch location during the Stanley Cup finals.

“I have been a Preds fan since day one and a long-time season ticket holder,” said Jackman. “So when the Preds advanced to the Stanley Cup finals, I began thinking of ways to engage our customers in the championship run. I am pumped to be a part of this community and play a small part in building excitement for the Preds.”
