Coming off the best quarter and month in the 41-year history of Burgan Real Estate, the company is now adding to its growing list of achievements, this time in the form of a custom menu item at one of the most popular restaurants in Youngstown. On Thursday, Suzie’s Dogs and Drafts, a gourmet hotdog, hamburger and libations restaurant, with locations in Downtown Youngstown and Canfield, will add the “Better With Burgan Dog” to their menu.
“This has been an incredible year for all of us at Burgan Real Estate. And while awards are great to recognize accomplishments, you know you are doing something right when one of the of the most popular restaurateurs and restaurants in the Mahoning Valley wants to name a menu item after your company,” said Patrick Burgan, broker and co-owner of Burgan Real Estate. “Youngstown has always been a great place for food, but Christian has taken his own creative liberties and developed a group of restaurants that are changing the way we all enjoy some of our favorite dishes. The creation of the Better with Burgan Local Dog is a tribute to our roots here in the Valley for over 40 years and we can’t thank him enough for recognizing us as worthy addition to their menus at Suzie’s Dogs and Drafts.”
The “Better with Burgan Local Dog,” the creation of Patrick Burgan, is a 100% all beef hot dog on a New England-style bun, topped with Youngstown Greens, Spaghetti O’s and shredded Amish cheddar cheese. While patrons can construct their hotdogs and hamburgers from any combination of the 60+ toppings on Suzie’s menu, the restaurant also offers 15 signature dogs, which now includes the Better with Burgan Dog. While the restaurant has named signature hot dogs after local personalities, this is the first signature hotdog named after a company.
“As a local company, we love the fact that our restaurant brings smiles to so many resident’s faces who come in to enjoy their own creations or our own. After seeing the performance of Burgan Real Estate both in the community and this year in their own business helping people sell their homes, we thought they might be able to make our menu better too with the addition of their own signature hotdog,” said Christian Reinhart, CEO of Suzie’s Dogs and Drafts, Mission Taco and the all new, Rhine Haus Bier Garden, slated to open Downtown this October. “I really value the way that Patrick and Sue do business and felt that giving Burgan Real Estate their own signature dog on the menu was a great way to show them my appreciation for all they do for our community in the Mahoning Valley.”
Having a local restaurant honor the 41 year old locally owned real estate company by naming a menu item after them is nothing new for Burgan Real Estate. In July of 2017, Inner Circle in Canfield celebrated the company’s 40thanniversary of being the Valley’s locally owned and operated real estate agency with the addition of the Burgan Burger to their menu. While it was supposed to be on the menu for a limited time, the burger continues to be available at Inner Circle in Canfield because of its popularity. Sue Filipovich, co-owner and Broker at Burgan Real Estate, hopes the same is true with the addition of the Burgan Dog.
“We always say that selling your home in the Mahoning Valley is “Better with Burgan,” and with the addition of the Better with Burgan Local Dog to Suzie’s menu and the continuation of the Burgan Burger at Inner Circle in Canfield, it looks like dining is starting to be too,” said Burgan.
The Better with Burgan Local Dog is available at Suzie’s Dogs and Drafts for $7.00. However, to celebrate the launch of the new menu item, customers can enjoy the Better with Burgan Dog for just $4 on Thursday, October 11 at Suzie’s locations in Youngstown at 34 N. Phelps Street or their Boardman location at 1393 Boardman-Canfield Rd. A DJ will be playing live music at the Boardman location starting at 5pm.
