“We did see a spike in business immediately. I’m guesstimating that business jumped 15% or more,” says Brian Snyder, co-owner of Pine State Biscuits, which was in the June issue as a Top 10 fried chicken joint.
Foster Burger was named one of the Top 10 best new burger spots in Bon Appetit’s July issue.

You can’t compare us to McDonalds and Burgerville,” says Andy Ricker, co-owner of Foster Burger. “We are about a $1.50 more, but they use pucks and we use hand-ground beef.”

And besides, he adds, “We’ve never had a hot dog on the menu.”
