The leading “better burger” franchise is elevating its menu once again, adding the iconic cheese brand to its top-of-the-line topping offerings
Starting May 10, MOOYAH will offer Tillamook® Cheddar Cheese at restaurants across Texas and Louisiana in a pilot for a limited time.
“We’re excited to be able to offer our Guests the very best cheddar cheese available,” said Natalie Anderson Liu, MOOYAH VP of Brand. “We believe that in addition to being the perfect complement to our delicious burgers, Tillamook’s commitment to sustainability, environmental stewardship, and most of all, keeping the highest quality standards makes this a perfect relationship.”
Tillamook Cheddar’s high quality aligns with MOOYAH’s commitment to offering the most superior ingredients and best flavors possible to its Guests. It will make the perfect topper for the brand’s Certified Angus Beef® Brand burgers, all-natural Jennie-O® turkey burgers and Dr. Praeger’s black bean vegan burgers served on non-GMO potato and multigrain buns that are baked in-house daily.
Renowned for its farmer-owned business model and commitment to stewardship, Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) produces the highest-quality dairy products while supporting farms in the process.
Tillamook Cheddar is internationally renowned, having won accolades and awards from the American Cheese Society, the U.S. Champion Cheese Contest and the International Cheese Awards. Tillamook Medium Cheddar Cheese that will be featured at MOOYAH won the gold medal in the 2010 World Cheese Championship Cheese Contest hosted by the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association in Madison, Wisconsin.
“Tillamook is the fastest-growing natural cheese brand on dairy walls across the country, partially in thanks to our restaurant partners who have introduced us to food lovers in new cities,” said Preston Simon, Director of Foodservice at TCCA. “So, when MOOYAH, a brand equally committed to using only the highest quality ingredients and delivering bold flavor, approached us to partner, it was an easy answer.”
A Certified B Corporation®, TCCA has met the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. This is a rigorous certification process, measuring a company’s performance in five categories: governance, workers, customers, community and the environment.
“We look forward to hearing our Guests’ reactions to this test run with Tillamook,” said Anderson Liu. “If all goes well, we plan to expand Tillamook cheeses to more MOOYAH markets, and offer a wide selection of Tillamook cheeses in the future, including pepper jack and Swiss.”
Guests who want to dip into all the cheesiness can join MOOYAH on social media, where they can learn about opportunities to win a free Tillamook swag box, filled to the brim with cheesy goodness.
