This weekend, hamburger lovers in the Seattle area will have the opportunity to win one of 100 Golden Tickets giving winners free burgers for a year, one per week, all part of grand-opening celebrations at the region’s newest CaliBurger located in Shoreline, WA., the latest addition to Santa Monica, Calif.-based burger chain. All guests on November 11 and 12 will be able to enjoy free fries from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“We could not be more excited to debut our third location in the Seattle area and wanted to introduce the store in a big way,” said Jeffrey Kalt, CEO of CaliBurger. “This promotion is our way of giving back to our guests and burger enthusiasts in Shoreline and we hope that we are able to spread a bit of cheer for the next year.”
The Shoreline location has a number of exciting innovations, including Flippy, an autonomous robot system that operates the fry station. According to Kalt, Flippy ensures the deep-fried food is prepared perfectly, every time, while allowing restaurant staff to focus on more customer-centric activities. “It’s no secret that running the deep fryer is one of the least popular jobs. Flippy handles the tough work letting our team focus on our guests,” Kalt added.
“Flippy is a wonderful addition to our team,” said Hasan Zeer, CaliBurger Shoreline franchisee. “We have lines of kids who wait to watch Flippy do this thing, and we take great pleasure in watching their wide-eyed reaction to the robotic magic”
“Watching their amazement makes me wonder if our french-fry focused robot will be the spark that will lead to the next generation of robot engineers and scientists,” he added.
Kalt shared that the Gold Tickets will be given to the first 50 guests through the door upon opening on Thursday November 11. On Friday November 12, the remaining 50 tickets will be raffled off to random, lucky guests. The store opens at 11 a.m. A digital version of the ticket will be made available in months to come. Recipients can redeem the offer through the PopID kiosk at CaliBurger Shoreline.
CaliBurger has restaurants across the United States and in select international locations. CaliBurger Shoreline is located at 18336 Aurora Ave N., Shoreline, WA 98133.
