“Retail Roundup: Larkburger swoops into OP; Humanscale celebrates KC opening”
Kansas City Business Journal, April 6th, 2016, Leslie Collins
Larkburger has chosen Overland Park for its first out-of-state location.
The Colorado-based restaurant concept is known for its burgers, such as the signature Larkburger, which features black angus beef, fresh toppings and the house sauce. Its tuna burger features grilled ahi tuna steak with lettuce, tomato, onion, fresh cilantro and chipotle sauce. It also offers a vegetarian burger and a variety of salads and sides. Its menu offerings don’t use preservatives or additives and its sauces and dressings are all made in-house. The fast-casual chain also is committed to eco-friendly practices, such as using biodegradable containers and utensils made from potato and corn starch.
“The Kansas City area is a natural extension for the Larkburger brand,” CEO Adam Baker said in a release. “We see a lot of similarities between Kansas City and Colorado as far as lifestyle and flavor preferences, and believe our focus on high-quality, natural ingredients and culinary techniques will resonate with the residents of Overland Park. We’re so excited to support and become more involved in this community.”
Larkburger plans a 2017 opening at Corbin Park inside a 2,400-square-foot space that can seat 75. The restaurant, which was established in 2006, now has 12 locations in Colorado…”
