The Journey Starts in Manhattan, KS

The goal at every Spark’s Burger Co. location is to develop an independent supply chain working with local ranchers and farmers to keep the revenue local and work directly with those surrounding the city. Spark’s Burger Co. is the bridge between local producers and community families.

Manhattan, KS is located right off Interstate 70, the main cross-country artery for vehicle transportation. It’s location and surrounding enterprises make it a prime place to launch Spark’s Burger Co.

The Little Apple is also home to the Kansas State University Wildcats and Bill Snyder Family Stadium, where 50,000 fans cheer on the Cats during each home game. Bramlage Coliseum also draws over 12,000 fans who come ready to Wabash with Coach Tang, who has drawn multiple sell out crowds in the 2022-2023 season. 

Approximately 22,000 cars pass by Manhattan daily, so there’s no shortage of fast food customers. In addition, four other major highways lead to the town. It sits smack dab in the heart of Kansas, a state known for exceptional cattle and dairy production, which makes it a prime location for locally sourced beef and dairy. Manhattan is near Fort Riley, the 1st Infantry Division of the US Army. A division headquarters and five brigade sized units are stationed there. The presence of Fort Riley brings a population impact of over 37,000 personnel, including military, their families, and civilian employees. This provides a powerful advantage for the workforce.

In 2023, The greater Manhattan area received national recognition for its economic activity in growth, ranking third by projects per capita and 4th by total projects.

Future Expansion Plans

One of the few tenets of the current fast food industry we adopt is to be convenient, so Spark’s Burger Co. has a very aggressive expansion plan to see this local community impact reach far and wide.

After a successful launch in Manhattan, we will initially move through the Great Plains region. The USDA has also allotted $215M with their Meat and Poultry Expansion Program, giving fund access for independent ranchers to develop shared processing facilities. We are keeping a close eye on these developments and might just follow in their footsteps.

What community will we impact next? If you know of a possible location, let us know. We can’t wait to regenerate the fast-food industry a help local communities all over!
