Made with coconut milk, the new dairy-free menu item is available at most Burgerville locations
VANCOUVER, Wash. (May 24, 2019) –– Burgerville and Coconut Bliss, two Oregon-based companies, have collaborated on a brand new 100% plant-based, dairy-free ice cream shake. The Bliss Shake is available starting today at nearly all Burgerville locations throughout Oregon and Washington.
Made with coconut milk and sweetened with organic cane sugar, the soft serve blend was created by Coconut Bliss exclusively for Burgerville. It’s one of the first plant-based shakes to be offered year-round at a restaurant chain.
“Our guests have been requesting plant-based shakes for years,” said Chef Becky McGrath, director of food production at Burgerville. “It was so fun to work side by side with Coconut Bliss to develop this exclusive soft serve delicious shake. We’re thrilled to now be able to offer our guests both dairy and non-dairy options every day.”
For the same price as its traditional dairy milkshakes, guests can order any available shake flavor –– including Oregon Fresh Berry Shakes, which will be available in June –– by saying, “Make it a Bliss.” The Bliss Shakes will be made on a dedicated Bliss machine in each location that is separate from the traditional dairy milkshake machine.
Coconut Bliss is also excited about this special product launch with Burgerville, as it marks the company’s first foray into the fast-casual restaurant sector. The Eugene-based company strategically chose Burgerville as its partner in this important venture, since the companies share similar customer bases as well as an ongoing commitment to producing high-quality food.
