Earth Burger Meets Kickstarter Goal

UPDATE: The Earth Burger Kickstarter has met its goal of $40,000 with 264 backers.

The restaurant updated its fans at noon on Friday about the ongoing campaign.

"Kickin' Rockets! We've reached our Kickstater goal! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We still have 3 days left for our campaign, so continue to spread the good news that Earth Burger is coming to San Antonio! Reward levels from here on out will definitely be fulfilled."

Thursday, April 24: Much like Jack and his giant bean stalk, this news is huge. Earth Burger, SA's soon-to-be first all-vegetarian fast-food joint, is just over $1,000 dollars away from meeting it's $40,000 Kickstarter campaign goal.

Brought to you by the same folks behind two San Antonio Green Vegetarian Cuisines (and one in Houston), Earth Burger will open at 722 NW Loop 410 inside the Park North shopping center with an array of burgers, wraps and healthy sides (hummus, kale salad). The restaurant is scheduled to open in June.

After several pop-ups and exclusive menu tastings for big donors, the campaign is sitting at $38,911 with four days remaining. Regardless of how you may feel about a Kickstarter, or a three-time restaurant owner crowd-sourcing to open a fourth eatery, the numbers suggest San Antonians are willing to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to bringing healthier and plant-based fast-food options.

If (and at this point it's more than likely WHEN) they meet their goal, Earth Burger will be the first SA eatery to do so. Mixtli tried for a rooftop garden and Cockasian tried to recruit “founding members.”
