FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Plan B Burger Bar, which has several locations in the state including Fairfield and Stamford, has been named a Global Hot 100 Company.
Plan B's Founder and CEO Al Gamble is going to the World Summit on Innovation & Entrepreneurship as an innovator, according to a press release. The WSIE was launched at the United Nations in 2006 and the summit event will be held at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City Wednesday through Friday, according to the release.
"It is an immense honor to be selected as one of the Innovators” said Gamble in the release. “I’m looking forward to sharing our story of Plan B Burger Bar – how we laid the foundation to grow a national ‘micro-brand’ by focusing on the local communities around us. The casual food and beverage segment is changing with an increased demand for high-quality, environmentally sustainable food that is locally sourced.
"An incredible burger isn’t enough. Consumers deserve businesses that support their town or city with values, ideals and flavors that connect people to the communities they live in – from hiring local employees, to ordering beer from regional breweries. We support and promote local farmers and serve their produce in our restaurants. We work with local artists for the artwork that hangs on our walls. We host events that mean something. It matters when you partner with groups that truly make a positive difference in the lives of others."
