Shari's Burgers Now 100% Angus Beef

BEAVERTON, OR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 19, 2007 -- Shari's Family Restaurants has reconstructed their entire burger line from the bun up, to offer "Burger Perfection Redefined!"

"Angus is the star, but we've put together the complete package with our NEW burgers," said Kevin Bechtel, Shari's Senior Vice President of Menu Development. "Our new burger buns are the best you can buy, plus we provide all the fixin's so customers can top their burgers just the way they like them."

The centerpiece of Shari's new burgers is a handmade-style patty of 100% Choice Angus Beef, which provides a quality product with an enhanced flavor profile. Each burger is available as a single patty, or can be ordered as a double.

Shari's cornmeal-dusted burger buns are an all-natural product. They are made with high-altitude Montana grown wheat, which is harvested, milled and baked on an award-winning family farm.

Every burger is delivered to the table with a caddy of popular condiments, including Shari's NEW Burger/Fry Sauce 66, a classic blend of sauce reminiscent of burger toppings from days gone by. This sauce is popular to spread on burgers, but also as a dipping sauce for fries.

As part of the burger reintroduction, Shari's is offering two NEW burger creations. The 'Wild West Angus Burger' features crisp onion rings, bacon, cheddar and tangy barbecue sauce. The 'Philly Steak Angus Burger' is topped with thinly sliced steak, grilled onions, mushrooms and Provolone cheese. All burgers are available 24 hours a day at Shari's 98 locations.
