As founder Zan Kaufman said: “I was working as a corporate lawyer in New York City and the burger was at Zaitzeff, an East Village burger joint. Soon, I started moonlighting there in my free time. I wanted to know everything about this burger: how it was made, where the ingredients came from and how it tasted so damn good.”
And it’s not just about burgers. Kaufman is committed to raising money and awareness for a number of charities. Since 2018 they have raised over £32,000 and trained 25 individuals in Mental Health First Aid.
