Sustainable Burger Joint Opens In Rye Brook

RYE BROOK, N.Y. – Daniel Magnus knew he had found a business he could believe in when he took a bite into his first "Elevation Burger" made with 100 percent organic, grass-fed, free-range beef.

"It was perfection," said Magnus, a Rye resident. "And I loved the concept. It immediately resonated with me."

Magnus recently opened up his first Elevation Burger franchise in Rye Brook at the Rye Ridge Shopping Center.

The Virginia-based company is built on a model of environmental sustainability, using USDA-certified organic beef produced from livestock raised humanely in grass pastures, free of the ever-increasing amounts of antibiotics, pesticides, and chemicals used in producing industrial feedlot beef.

"It's kind of scary when you think about how the industry in unsustainable – the idea that we won’t be able to feed ourselves eventually," said Magnus in reference to the beef industry.

Magnus may be environmentally conscious, but he is also a businessman.

"With food, ideals are great, but in the end you need to have a burger that tastes good," said Magnus. "And better ingredients make for better flavor. We have the best-tasting burgers in the business."

The standard Elevation Burger begins at $5.79, which is served with two beef patties and a choice of free toppings. A slice of aged-cheddar can be added for 40 cents.

Vegetarian and vegan options are also available on the menu along with fresh-cut fries cooked in olive oil and milkshakes made with antibiotic-and-hormone-free dairy.“Our organic approach at Elevation Burger ensures a quality experience built on sustainability and a healthy future for our kids,” said Magnus.
