Burger Boss coming to Tustin
Corona-based Burger Boss is set to open another Orange County location Wednesday, Sept. 20 at The Village at Tustin Legacy.
Burger Boss, a regional chain that puts customers in control through kiosk ordering stations, is among several tenants opening this fall at the new retail center.
The chain was founded in Riverside by Mo Fahra in 2011 who made a name for himself in the hospitality industry while at the University of Michigan. He opened a restaurant on campus called, Club Café that was later named one of the best college restaurants by Sports Illustrated.
Burger Boss builds on Fahra’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions. Burgers are made with grass-fed beef; customers dine on plate ware and utensils made of recycled materials. More than 30 toppings offered on the menu are locally sourced.
Customers customize their burgers by ordering from electronic kiosks. The restaurant also offers sandwiches made with cage-free chicken or turkey or a black bean patty.
Besides Riverside, Burger Boss operates other locations in Cypress, Mission Viejo and Lake Forest. The mini-chain is planning to open more locations next year in Newport Beach (January 2018) and Los Angeles.
