Burgerville

Burgerville is one of the only build-your-own-burger joints to make the list. Burgers are custom-made. Cooks and line cooks and others work by hand, topping the burgers on the grill and placing epic globs of American-style cheese on top of the meat patty.

Starting wages under the contract are set at 25 cents above minimum wage, which is currently $14 an hour in the Portland area. But Medina said union workers will also benefit from a system the company agreed to set up that will make it possible for customers to tip when they pay with cards. The contract says the company will implement such a system at all union locations within 30 days. When it tried out the system at the Convention Center location this summer, Medina says it resulted in a pay bump of over $8 an hour for the workers there. Medina said the company initially opposed the idea of tipping, but its concession on that issue was key to reaching agreement on the contract.

In addition to burgers and fries, Burgerville offers other products such as chicken and turkey sandwiches, veggie burgers, fish sandwiches, and fish and chips. The chain uses local ingredients, such as Tillamook Cheddar, and locally grown strawberries in its milkshakes and sundaes. Throughout the year it offers seasonal items such as milkshakes made with hazelnuts, pumpkin, fresh raspberries, fresh strawberries, and blackberries, and side orders such as Walla Walla onion rings, sweet potato fries, tempura-style fried asparagus and Yukon Gold potatoes.

On March 10, 1961, the first Burgerville USA opens on Mill Plain Boulevard in Vancouver, Washington, three miles east of downtown. There's no drive-through lane or inside seating, so all customers order from an outside window. It offers no-frills burgers for 19 cents, a "Colossal Burger" for 39 cents, fries, a shrimp burger, soft serve cones, sundaes, shakes, lime frosties, soft drinks, and coffee. With its speedy service and 19-cent burger, it is a local novelty. But Burgerville is also an instant hit with Vancouver teenagers. This Burgerville remains in business in that building until 1975 when it is replaced with a larger Burgerville next door that offers inside seating and drive-through service.
