Last night we attended the launch of Studiocanal and BRGR’s The Founder burger in honour of this week’s release of the film, which stars Michael Keaton.
Bespoke and delicious The Founder BRGR contains two Blade steak patties with melted cheese, shredded iceburg lettuce, pickled gherkins and the secret recipe BRGR.CO sauce, in a triple layer sesame bun. It’s basically BRGR’s take on the Big Mac.
Starring Michael Keaton, The Founder tells of the rise of Ray Kroc and how this persistent businessman managed to take McDonald’s to a global level.
The Founder BRGR will launch in both BRGR.CO’s venues – Soho and King’s Road on Monday 13th February and will remain available to the public for two weeks until 26th February.

Directed by John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks, The Blind Side) and starring Academy-Award nominated Michael Keaton (Birdman, Spotlight), Nick Offerman (Fargo, Welcome to Happiness, 21 Jump Street), John Carroll Lynch (The Invitation, Ted 2), Linda Cardellini (Mad Men), B.J Novak (Inglourious Basterds) and Laura Dern (99 Homes, Jurassic Park), THE FOUNDER is released in UK cinemas 17 February.
The Founder is a drama that tells the true story of how Ray Kroc (Keaton), a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He manoeuvred himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.
