For Millennials. By Millennials.
It’s not uncommon to see celebrities diversify their business strategies. And now, Elijah Daniel has also joined that list. His latest stunt involves a virtual restaurant brand called Gay Burger. And to make things better, it is for a good cause!
Elijah Daniel launches ‘Gay Burger’
While talking to TubeFilter, Daniel said:
Gay Burger came along as a joke inspired by MrBeast Burger as a creative new way to raise money and help out small restaurants. It was originally a joke where I just yelled, ‘I WANT A GAY BURGER CHAIN’ out of nowhere.
Just like many other startups, Gay Burger was nothing but a joke for Daniel. But Katia Ameri, Daniel’s friend, professional partner, and tech entrepreneur convinced him otherwise. He’s the one who turned Gay Burger into an actually functional business plan for Daniel’s birthday last month. Daniel said:
It’s been really fun finding people who can make my ridiculous ideas into functioning projects. Obviously, my ridiculous friends were down, so along with @TreviMoran, @BryanaSalaz, and @st0rmryan, we had Gay Burger.
How did Gay Burger come into existence?
So, to bring Gay Burger to life, Elijah Daniel teamed up with a Silicon Valley startup named house.ai. They brand themselves as:
We are a collective of 20+ seasoned founders and unicorn operators launching industry disrupting companies
Our first startup studio iteration combines top engineering and product talent from Silicon Valley with the marketing reach of celebrities
Elijah Daniel, along with help from house.ai, launched Gay Burger as a “virtual” restaurant. Now, what that means is that it doesn’t own a single location. Instead, they’ll hand down their recipes to already existing kitchens in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City (the cities where Daniels has launched Gay Burger).
And just like the name, Elijah Daniel has also made sure the menu is filled with burgers that have kinky names. These include:
- Love Me Daddy (a “studly beef daddy patty” topped with American cheese, pickles, white onion, lettuce, and special house sauce “gayoli”)
- No More Milk Daddy (“vegan daddy patty,” sliced tomato, onion, pickles, lettuce)
- I Like Chicks (fried chicken “daddy patty,” gayoli, mustard, lettuce, pickles).
- Gay Fries (“Fries but they’re gay, y’know?”)
- Extremely Gay Fries (your average gay fries plus caramelized onions, cheese, and bacon).
Just like its predecessor MrBeast Burger, you can order Gay Burger only through Postmates, Uber Eats, and DoorDash. Moreover, the best thing of all is that all proceeds from Gay Burger will go to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
