Popular Portland-born Little Big Burger will celebrate the opening of its Capitol Hill restaurant on Wednesday, April 24 with free burgers starting at 11 a.m. until supplies run out. The fast food chain, which hopes to add 10 restaurants in the Seattle area eventually, opened its first Seattle-area location in Wallingford last October. A Green Lake outpost (7130 Woodlawn Ave NE) will join the Capitol Hill location (1200 E Pike St) in early May.

Little Big Burger prides itself on high-quality burgers with regionally sourced ingredients, like Cascade Farms beef from Washington, local brioche buns, Tillamook cheese, and Camden’s Catsup. The company was founded in Portland in 2010 and has 12 Oregon locations, plus a presence in Austin, San Diego, and Charlotte.

Last month, Little Big Burger employees announced they had formed a union. The new labor group jumped into immediate action, advocating for $5 raises, benefits, sick leave, and fair scheduling. Nationwide, food-service unions are gaining momentum, even in the fast-food industry, which has historically been difficult to unionize.
