Our Work

Strategic media and communications to help spread the gospel of locally sourced burgers, fries and shakes.


Founded in 1961, this iconic Northwest restaurant has grown to approximately 40 locations and is known for its locally sourced burgers, fries, shakes and seasonal specialties. Gard has helped Burgerville share its stories through strategic media relations and pitching, both to regional media outlets and national trade publications. Part of that process always includes ensuring that the company’s external messaging aligns with media coverage and strategy. We have also helped Burgerville with crisis communications and internal communications, including media training, podcasts and an internal video message from the CEO to all employees.
