INSIGHTS

Bison burgers are slowly gaining menu share, reaching only 2.3% of American menu incidents. However, this dish is a sleeping giant as its one year growth is projected to be 20.7% and its 4 year growth 78.2%. This concept is most commonly paired with tomato, aioli sauce, and/or bacon at 26%, 13%, and 13% respectively. The drier bison meat is balanced with the pairing of sauces and cheese, making the dish even more savory. The peppers in the cheese offer extra flavor to the concept without overtaking the rest.
