Super Duper Burgers Debut at San Francisco International Airport

HMSHost adds first airport location for this San Francisco favorite burger joint

SAN FRANCISCO (October 15, 2018) – Juicy burgers from the Bay Area’s beloved burger joint, Super Duper Burgers are now being served up to world travelers at San Francisco International Airport. The mouthwatering made-to-order burgers made their debut in Terminal 3 courtesy of global restaurateur HMSHost and its San Francisco restaurateur partner, April Spears. The opening marks the first airport location for Super Duper Burgers, which began in the Bay Area and has grown to 13 locations.  

“The name says it all! Burgers and sandwiches are popular choices for airport travelers and homegrown Super Duper Burgers is taking it to a new level for our traveling guests,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Amy Dunne. “We’re thrilled to partner with the San Francisco International Airport team on delivering the most in-demand food choices such as the area’s favorite burgers and other delights to SFO world travelers.”

“Fast food burgers. Slow food values.” That is the Super Duper Burgers motto. The restaurant provides a high-quality take on traditional fast food in a fun, friendly, retro-inspired environment. The menu features signature burgers using vegetarian-fed beef from local ranches, ground fresh daily, free-range chicken sandwiches, organic veggie burgers, french fries, and garlic fries with fresh garlic and six-month aged cheddar. The buns and ciabatta rolls are baked fresh daily by local artisan bakers using non-GMO ingredients while all vegetables and canola oil are non-GMO as well.

In addition to Super Duper’s signature juicy burgers and sandwiches, travelers can feast on other delights including unlimited house-made pickles, a “Super Salad,” organic Straus Creamery soft serve ice cream served as a shake or in a cone, along with a variety of local beer and wine.

Super Duper’s popular breakfast menu is available for travelers with an early morning flight. Breakfast favorites include house-made mini donuts, an organic egg sandwich with a choice of bacon, sausage or avocado, along with Mr. Espresso coffee and fresh-squeezed orange juice.

Super Duper Burgers is aligned with San Francisco International Airport’s vision to provide good, clean, and fair food which has been responsibly sourced and deliciously prepared. Super Duper Burgers builds their restaurants just like they build their burgers: sustainably, locally, and with an unwavering commitment to quality and health. Super Duper Burgers works with local farms and suppliers to not only reduce their carbon footprint, but to create unparalleled flavors. All Super Duper packaging is 100% compostable.

Super Duper Burgers can be found in Terminal 3, Boarding Area F. A list of existing HMSHost-operated locations at San Francisco International Airport is available on the HMSHost location finder map.
