Who is MrBeast (And Why Is He Selling Burgers)?
By Stacie Adams
Jimmy Donaldson, aka MrBeast, is a YouTuber famous for his viral stunts and charitable efforts. The viral sensation has also tapped into various other business ventures, and one of them is a food brand called MrBeast Burger which first got its start as a pop-up restaurant in 2020.
MrBeast invited fans to partake in MrBeast Burger’s menu items for free, which resulted in thousands of visitors. These same menu items are now available all over the nation thanks to MrBeast's partnership with Virtual Dining Concepts, which uses kitchens in existing restaurants to make orders and provides them via online delivery apps.
According to the brand’s website, MrBeast hopes that his burgers will help dining establishments boost their revenues without disrupting their existing operations. Per Grubhub, the MrBeast Burger menu includes a range of burgers, chicken sandwiches, grilled cheese, crinkle fries, and other tasty items.
The MrBeast Burger website also mentions locations in the United Kingdom and Asia, which illustrates the global influence of this wildly successful YouTuber. Along with placing orders via popular food apps, customers can purchase gift cards to ensure their friends and family get to sample the delicious menu.
