THE ‘LOUIS LASSEN’ ROLE ($45,000 – $55,000+)

LouisLassen.png

While there’s an ongoing debate as to who the original creator of the hamburger is … Louis Lassen is most frequently credited with fashioning the very first one, in New Haven, Connecticut … in 1900.

As the story goes … a customer was a bit pressed for time and asked Louis for something “quick and delicious”.
Lassen grabbed some ground beef and mixed it with the ingredients he usually used for his steak sandwiches. He then broiled the ground beef and pressed it between two pieces of toasted bread.

No one could ever have imagined the popularity the hamburger would go on to enjoy. In fact … it’s estimated that Americans consume 50,000,000,000 (and that’s not a typo – 50 BILLION) … hamburgers each year!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Nothing really.

That said … our client is one of the fastest growing hamburger chains in North America!

THE ‘HAMBURGER’ ROLE ($45,000 – $55,000+)

hamburger role.jpg

Did you know … the word ‘hamburger’ originates from the town of Hamburg in Germany? The long and short of it goes something like this;

Way back in the 19th-century … German sailors brought back the idea of raw, shredded beef (known today, as beef tartare) … after trading with their counterparts in the Baltic provinces of Russia.

At some point … a local (and unnamed) German chef decided he’d throw in a bit of a ‘twist’ … and he cooked that beef!

And … the ‘hamburger’ was born!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Nothing really.

HEAD HONCHO - STELL FABRICATION
We used to think the term ‘honcho’ originated from the Spanish language.
