San Diego, CA, United States, 2009/08/27 - Tioli's Crazee Burger, an award winning San Diego based casual gourmet burger restaurant, reveals expansion plans - TiolisCrazeeBurger.com.
The award winning San Diego based casual gourmet burger restaurant Tioli’s Crazee Burger prepares to grow with joint ventured corporate units and franchised outlets. Crazee Burger is currently recruiting joint venture partners to open five additional company operated restaurants in San Diego.
Tioli’s Crazee Burger prides itself on providing a menu full of interesting and mouth watering burgers such as the Croatia burger topped with roasted bell peppers and garlic spread. More exotic offerings include burgers made with ostrich, buffalo, and alligator. All of the sauces, such as the poached red wine pears, mushrooms, bacon, cream and plum jelly sauce that smothers the venison burger, are made from scratch. In addition to the 30 handcrafted burgers, Tioli’s offers bratwurst, salads, and sides such as imported sauerkraut and German potato salad.
Restaurateur Wolfgang Peter Schlicht and Chef Lothar Manz, founders of Tioli’s Crazee Burger, met in 2005 and realized they had a lot in common other than their German heritage. Wolfgang had owned restaurants in Australia, Canada, and Colorado while Lothar had been a chef at multiple European and American restaurants. Together they have created a booming burger business by joining American food traditions with European flavors and taste.
“We believe there is a broad appeal for the Tioli’s Crazee Burger concept because not only are our burgers unique, they are freshly made by hand and individually seasoned with its own special garnish,” explained Schlicht. “Lothar is a trained chef and he loves to try new and exciting burger combinations.”
Tioli’s Crazee Burger (tioliscrazeeburger.com) has received rave reviews and has been featured in Food Network’s Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives” as well as on local television news with Larry Himmel. Fieri claims that Tioli’s is “fine dining with a twist on an American classic.” Newspapers such as San Diego Magazine, San Diego Reader, and North Park News have awarded Tioli’s with “best burger” awards.
For years, customers have been asking Wolfgang and Lothar how they might invest in Tioli’s Crazee Burger. To achieve their expansion goals, Tioli’s has partnered with San Diego, CA based growth management company, FranQuest.
Wolfgang Schlicht and Lothar Manz created Tioli’s Crazee Burger in 2005 as a laid-back, friendly restaurant where guests can enjoy gourmet burgers, draft beers, and wine by the glass. Diners are invited to travel the world by way of burger with all of Chef Manz’s sauces made from scratch, including the mustards and the house-blend chipotle ketchup. Tioli’s Crazee Burger’s success proves the fact that everybody loves a good burger.
