Not just any burger. Magnus has opened Elevation Burger, the nation’s first 100% USDA-certified organic hamburger chain serving 100% grass-fed, 100% free-range beef ground on-premises, at the Rye Ridge Shopping Center in Rye Brook. The Virginia-based company now boasts 20 locations and expects to open at least 100 by the end 2013.
In addition to its organic beef, the restaurant also serves fresh-cut fries cooked in heart-healthy, 100% olive oil as well as hand-scooped milkshakes made with antibiotic- and hormone-free milk. The opening adds 40 new jobs to the local labor force.
