Burbank location joins commitment to families across nation
Fast casual pizza concept Fresh Brothers raised $16,777 during two fundraisers held for hurricane flood relief in Houston, Texas and Florida on Tuesday, September 12 and Tuesday, September 19. On both dates the family-friendly pizza spot donated 20 percent of every order to the Greater Houston Community Foundation’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and the American Red Cross to support relief efforts in Houston and Hurricane Irma relief efforts in Florida.
The total amount raised came from all participating Fresh Brothers stores in Southern California, including the Burbank store on Riverside Dr.
With 19 stores in Southern California, the nearest Fresh Brothers may be 1,500 miles from Houston and more than 2,500 miles from Miami, but the community-focused restaurant wanted to do its part toward helping victims affected by both Harvey and Irma.
“We are a family business helping families across the country whose lives have been affected by these devastating hurricanes,” said Adam Goldberg, Founder and CEO of Fresh Brothers. “My wife Debbie and I started this company as a way to give back to our local communities. When the hurricanes hit, it was a no brainer to use our local Fresh Brothers stores to assist in hurricane relief efforts.”
Established by Houston’s mayor, Sylvester Turner, the philanthropic fund is designed to support the flood relief and reconstruction efforts in Houston.
The American Red Cross provides shelters for those displaced by Hurricane Irma and has thousands of volunteers on the ground in Florida.
The fundraiser is another example of Fresh Brothers’ commitment to be an active part of the communities that it serves by supporting local schools, sports teams and charitable organizations. More than $40,000 has been raised in total through similar fundraising events at Fresh Brothers’ stores across Orange and San Diego counties.
A family-run business, founders Adam and Debbie Goldberg’s goal was to take their traditional Chicago-style family recipes, originally created by Adam’s older brother, Scott, and give them a fresh California twist. The Fresh Brothers sauce is packed with 100 percent fresh tomatoes, not concentrate. The mozzarella is all- natural, with no fillers, additives or preservatives. Nothing is ever fried – wings, bites and tenders – even the Fresh Fries are baked. The Fresh Kids Special Sauce has a mix of five different finely ground veggies blended into the pizza sauce.
