Pacific Northwest's Burgerville Restaurants Use Local Ingredients

Vancouver, WA-based Burgerville, is a 39-restaurant fast food chain in the Pacific Northwest with a locavore philosophy. It focuses on seasonal ingredients and environmental sustainability. Their used canola oil is recycled into biodiesel and they purchase wind-generated electricity.

Burgerville’s burgers are made from hormone-free beef raised in eastern Oregon. Cheddar cheese comes from Oregon’s Tillamook County. Their shake flavors vary with what’s available in the agriculture-rich surroundings: pumpkin and hazelnut in fall; fresh strawberries in spring; and other flavors that reflect regional offerings.

The menu includes two vegan sandwich options, both made in the region.
