There is a growing movement in Kuwait, rightfully celebrated, to offer foodies the choice between regular or organic food options. But what if customers could only choose products made purely from organic, free-range or premium ingredients? This was the goal when Elevation Burger was first conceptualized in 2002. Elevation Burger was founded by a driving passion for good food that is organic, sustainable and fresh.
In a crowded marketplace, Elevation Burger continues to stand out with core values determining a constant focus on delivering high quality ingredients where the farm to plate ethos is palpable. Elevation Burger likes to partner with local farms to provide most of the fresh vegetables that accompany the burgers. You can safely eat the organic produce confident in the knowledge that they were grown using the best farming practices.
You can feel Elevation Burger’s values as soon as you walk into any of their locations. Starting with the greetings you get from the smiling employees, to the way in which they can advise you on your elevation experience. Step into the Elevation Burger at Al-Seif in the city and you will see crate packaging recycled as decorative ornaments and stamped “100% USDA approved.” To have a clearer understanding of what this significant stamp of quality means, products have to be 95% free of additives, synthetic pesticides, antibiotics and hormone free to be certified organic. The top-quality Halal Australian organic beef sourced for Elevation Burger and ground on the premises daily, comes from livestock with access to year-round, free-range grazing and so is naturally high in vitamins. Research has shown that that there are further benefits to eating beef that is exclusively grass-fed. A patty has less than half the fat, less saturated fat, 100 calories fewer than the same size of an ordinary burger, and triple the amount of Omega 3s! We’ll have the double, please!
If you’re craving that double-patty satiety and want to feel even happier about your burger choice, then Elevation Burger has created the perfect option. With the half the guilt burger there are still two hand molded patties, one beef and the other vegetarian which is packed full of organic grains and vegetables. You can go even further and wrap all this deliciousness up in an organic lettuce leaf, instead of the appropriately sized potato bun, but there’s no name ventured here to indicate how much more guilt you’ll alleviate with this option!
Elevation Burger aims to be more than just a burger restaurant. It is a philosophy and a vision to offer authentic and sustainably prepared food that is better for both you and the environment. Fresh and flavorful food made from the highest quality ingredients.
The way in which the food is prepared is also considered with goodness in mind. The freshly cut fries which are locally sourced are cooked only in heart healthy olive oil, giving them that pleasant crunch and a delightful, healthful taste. Although the cooking process itself may create waste, Elevation Burger has found a way to re-invest that produced waste oil as energy. This environmentally responsible company sees waste as a valuable resource, so once used the cooking olive oil is donated for conversion into plant based biodiesel. The use of this type of fuel is better for the atmosphere and the environment and increasing in popularity globally.
When it comes to sustainability it’s not only the food production that the business concerns itself with. The friendly and inviting Elevation Burger outlets are also built using sustainable materials such as the renewable bamboo flooring that you can see featured across all the Elevation Burger branches. Each Elevation Burger restaurant meets the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards.
Even though each of the 8 branches meet the same exacting standards of food production, design, cleanliness and well trained staff, each branch has its own unique characteristic to add to the overall Elevation experience. For example, if you have young children and you want a better food-choice to give them their energy to run around and enjoy themselves, the Discovery branch is ideal. Al-Bidaa is where you can find gluten-free buns and Al-Seif has the locally sourced organic breakfast. Al-Seif has also become a hub for teaching young children about caring for the environment, and celebrating artistic endeavors within the community to give back to local creatives and their valued customers. What we love about all locations though, is their shared ethos of becoming closer to the community by providing accessible branches that serve up Elevation Burger’s amazing offerings throughout Kuwait.
You can catch Elevation Burger on tour as they bring their vision to university students in Kuwait, setting up a temporary mobile stall on campuses and continuing to strive to bring to you high quality food. Also, a recent partnership with Carriage will allow Elevation Burger to deliver food in the freshest form as quickly as possible! This move alone is representative of Elevation Burger’s commitment and goals towards their customers to help them make better food choices. Not only is Elevation Burger available with its amazing locations, but they are also now even closer with their new delivery service and partnership with Carriage.
