The Journey Starts in Junction City

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.

Junction City, Kan., 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.

Approximately 22,000 cars pass by Junction City 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. Junction City also is home to 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.

A brand new, state-of-the art high school, Junction City High School, opened in August 2021. At 437,000 square feet, it’s the third largest high school in the United States and has a capacity to hold 1,800 students, thus aligning with McGregor’s vision for working with Career & Technical Education programs to develop business leaders and grow interest for the food service industry. 

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 Junction City, 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!
