COMMUNITY LOVE

Come into any Lil Woody’s Burgers & Shakes locations, and you’ll see a difference. Probably lots of smiles. Some shameless humor. Even strong opinions. You will likely spot creative types, artist, musicians and maybe even a town legend. Folks who crave stacked sandwiches with all-natural ingredients. And, you’ll feel welcome to return each time.

 

The owners, management, and crew are the real deal, and our doors are open to all. Keeping the Seattle vibe alive is critical to us. No wack sh*t here.

 

A love for authentic caring is why we constantly support our communities in numerous ways. It’s been obvious since we started in 2012 in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. And, more needed than ever. Agree?

 

Want to see this love in action? Our Burger 4 Burger program happens on specific days when we donate a burger for each one purchased to an organization that feeds or cares for underserved communities.

 

Also, Lil Woody’s Burgers & Shakes regularly donates gift cards, food, and money to non-profits, fundraisers, and auctions. Only the ones that make a difference though.

 

We take our community support further through endless collaborations with local talent and events. We support boundless creativity with other culinarians, musicians, artists, writers, etc. who share our passions.

 

Lil Woody’s Burgers & Shakes also partners with other cool businesses in the same neck of the woods. We know that ‘In union there’s strength’ always holds true. By ordering our supplies and ingredients with them, we minimize our environmental impact while ensuring our businesses source the freshest ingredients.

 

Bite into a backyard burger done well and thoughtfully — a guilt-free one you can enjoy again and again.

 

Have other ways we can help? We’re all ears. Shoot us a message on our Community Contact form below.

COMMUNITY

BURGER 4 BURGER

This initiative was born out of necessity to help people in need. Engaging, cultivating, and building community has always been important to us – over the years we have worked with non-profits, neighborhood organizations, youth-oriented services, arts & music programs, and underserved communities, by using our platform to raise awareness and money. Since implementing our Burger 4 Burger program, we now have a way for our customers to give back. Once or twice a month we announce that the weekly special or a designated day of the week will be part of our Burger 4 Burger Program, and for every burger sold that week or day we will donate one to an organization or community in need. This year's goal is to donate over 5000 burgers and double it by 2022.
