MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes Introduces Bird Party Option for President: The Crandidate

Rapidly Growing Better Burger Franchise Features a Fun and Delicious Burger for Election Season

DALLAS, TX – MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes, a national leader in the booming fast-casual burger segment, is bringing a refreshing choice to voters this presidential election season: the long-awaited debut of The Bird Party’s nominee, The Crandidate. He is left-wing and right-wing, making him the well-centered leader the nation craves, and is scheduled to make his triumphant entrance to the race starting September 29.

The Crandidate presents all the key leadership attributes that Americans have been desperately searching for as election day draws near. His platform base starts with a non-GMO, multigrain bun baked fresh daily, then continues with all natural Jennie-O® turkey, real Swiss cheese, crispy fried onion strings, Ocean Spray® whole berry cranberry sauce, crisp green leaf lettuce, and a touch of mayo.

So who is The Crandidate, and what does he stand for? Raised on a farm in Arkansas, The Crandidate comes from humble beginnings. His family scratched and saved to send him to prep school at Eggxeter where he starred on the football team as a wingback. This success earned him a scholarship to Cranford University where he studied biochemistry, writing his senior thesis on the effects of tryptophan. He went on to law school at George Wattle University and has since enjoyed a successful private practice, most notably winning a number of high-level presidential pardons for clients on Thanksgiving Day.

“The Crandidate is the clear choice for America,” said Michael Mabry, COO of MOOYAH. “As a uniquely American brand, MOOYAH is proud to stand behind his platform for presidency. The Crandidate brings the perfect taste combination at the perfect time, and we believe his Seriously Fun approach to a better burger will help put the country on the path to even greater things ahead.”

Focusing his energy on a nation hungry for a better choice, The Crandidate pledges to end squabbling and get the country back to gobbling. The Crandidate’s platform is simple:

· Freshness First: Buns baked in-house daily, crisp veggies, hand-cut fries, and of course, all natural turkey. Don’t settle for the other candidates’ stale policies.

· Diners’ Rights: Americans deserve a place where they can play with their food and not be judged. Anything else is not only un-American, it’s un-tasty.

· Balanced Burgers: Burgers should have just the right amount of bun, meat, veggies & condiments. A deficit in any of these is detrimental to the nation’s palates.

· Condiment Reform: The nation’s most delicious burgers should have a minimum of 10 sauces to choose from. Americans deserve a better burger than their parents had.

· Poultry Policy: Turkey burgers should taste as delicious as hamburgers. After all, this nation was founded on equality for all.

Guests can support The Crandidate by wearing his ‘Yes We Cran’ t-shirt proudly. MOOYAH is giving away The Crandidate t-shirts when Guests purchase four of the limited-time burgers from September 29###sup/sup### through November 13###sup/sup### and scan the purchase receipts on their rewards app. The Crandidate urges Americans to follow his tour on, where he will release weekly videos addressing important milestones, including announcing his running mate, and where ‘Yes We Cran’ t-shirts are available for purchase.

“From to The Crandidate t-shirts to the fun in-restaurant support, we couldn’t be more excited about how our tasteful nominee is campaigning to win the hearts of Americans,” said Natalie Anderson Liu, vice president of marketing for MOOYAH. “Not only is the humor and irreverence perfect for this particular election season, this burger’s combination of Ocean Spray whole berry cranberry sauce and our Jennie-O turkey burger is a delicious take on two seasonal favorites.”
