Taziki’s turns consumers on to ‘the other red meat’ with its inflation-fighting lamb burger

Behind the Menu: The Mediterranean cafe developed the burger to showcase cost-effective ground lamb in a familiar format.

Technomic data reveals which restaurant brands are serving consumers’ favorite patties—and what makes them so sought after.

The burger chain planned to open up to 50 new units this year but has pared that down to 40 to 45 stores because of a variety of delays and slowdowns. Many will have to open in the fourth quarter.

The company plans to generate 4% annual restaurant growth by 2025. But a thin pipeline, weak units and supply chain hassles are making the process of getting there difficult.

The culinary team worked to perfect the beef blend, cooking technique and execution to bring the chain's premium Wagyu Steakhouse Burger to the menu.

The chain is taking on McDonald's and Wendy's more directly with the Wagyu Steakhouse Burger, which features the quick-service sector's largest patty to date.
