Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar, the upscale burger restaurant which offers gourmet burgers combined with perfectly paired wine selections, raised $10,000 for The Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools as part of the grand opening celebration in Springfield, Virginia.
Zinburger made its debut in the National Capital Area when it opened its Springfield, location in May. Zinburger sold limited edition VIP Gold Cards for $100. With the donation, guests received a $100 Zinburger gift card and a Zinburger VIP Gold Card, which entitles the guest to top of the wait list status plus half price bottles of wine through the end of the year.
“We are thrilled for the opportunity to work with organizations like Zinburger that place a strong value on supporting the community they work in,” said Elizabeth Murphy, Executive Director of The Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools, the philanthropic arm of the school system that connects the strategic initiatives of FCPS to the community.
Since opening the East Coast’s first Zinburger in Clifton, N.J. five years ago to much fanfare, stellar reviews and packed crowds, Zinburger has developed an almost fanatical customer following who enjoy made-to-order gourmet burgers, hand-dipped shakes and floats, decadent pies and 23 wine varieties.
The Briad Group, headquartered in Livingston, NJ, is one of the fastest growing hospitality companies in the U.S. The Briad Group’s entities are: licensed franchisees for Wendy’s, TGI Fridays, Marriott and Hilton.
