Green Chile Options Now Available!

Green Chile, A Taste of the Southwest:

Braum’s is excited to now offer a Green Chile Cheeseburger, Chicken Sandwich and Breakfast Burrito.

The Green Chile Cheeseburger is loaded with flavor. It has a 100% third pound beef patty, two slices of Pepper Jack Cheese rich green chile peppers, lettuce and tomato all on top of

The Green Chile Chicken is topped with the same ingredients, the only difference is that it comes with a grilled or crispy chicken breast.

Then there is the Green Chile Breakfast Burrito. It contains scrambled eggs, sausage, Pepper Jack Cheese, hash browns, tomatoes and green chile peppers.

Now, if you are not familiar with the New Mexico Hatch Valley Green Chile, then you are in for a tasty surprise!

These peppers are some of the most sought after, and some even venture to say the best tasting that you can get. So, why are they so good? The Hatch valley of New Mexico is at about 4000 feet. So during the summer the peppers are exposed to hot and cold temperatures. This fluctuation in temperature is what causes the chile peppers to have that unique “Taste of Hatch” flavor.

Plus, did you know that Chile peppers are an amazing source of vitamin A, B, and C. One fresh medium sized green chile pod has as much Vitamin C as six oranges.

They are also high in fiber, phytonutrients and even the Capsaicin, the chemical that puts the hoot in your holler, is good for you. Capsaicin is being researched for its preventive effects on cancer at several major universities.

As if you needed another reason to try the new burger, chicken sandwich or burrito out, hot chile peppers burn calories by triggering a thermodynamic burn in the body, which speeds up the metabolism–and that’s always a win…right?!

Head to your closest Braum’s to try one of these tasty creations today!

 

Braum’s Employees Hit Tuition Jackpot

They may not have won the Powerball Jackpot, but the New Year is off to a great start for three Braum’s employees! And, it’s all thanks to a partnership between Braum’s and Dr Pepper.

Braum’s is proud to congratulate Yong Soon Saw of Norman, OK, Michelle Casso of Canyon, TX and Torri Rillema of Oklahoma City, OK for winning a $1,000 employee tuition award. Braum’s hosted a text to win contest in conjunction with Dr Pepper to award three $1,000 employee tuition prizes. The contest took place from October 1st to November 30th, 2015.

Braum’s Manager Misty Dunbar, District Manager Brian Ross and Regional Area Manager Luis Galvez presented employee Yong Soon Saw with a $1,000 check earlier this month at the Braum’s off of Robinson and Porter in Norman. The prize can be used to go towards the cost of Saw’s tuition and other educational expenses at The University of Oklahoma.

The prize can be used to go towards the cost of Saw’s tuition and other educational expenses at The University of Oklahoma.

“I am so thankful that I was able to win this tuition award,” said Saw, who transferred from Malaysia to attend school at The University of Oklahoma in Norman. “I am working really hard to cover all my living expenses so that my family does not have to send money to me while I am here attending school,” he said. “The monetary exchange rate between here and Malaysia is extremely high, which is why I am so happy that this award will help cut down on the cost of school.”

Saw attended college in Malaysia for two years before transferring to Oklahoma to study finance. He works at the Braum’s off of Robinson and Porter in Norman to cover his cost of living, but during the year and a half that he has been there it has become more like his home away from home.

“Saw is one of my best workers,” said Braum’s Manager Misty Dunbar. “He is always a joy to be around and his work ethic just can’t be beat!”

Hard work and dedication was used to describe all the Braum’s employee winners including Casso.

Braum’s Management Team Members, Carl Faddis and Travis Soper, presented employee Michelle Casso with a $1,000 check just two days before Christmas. The prize can be used to go towards the cost of her tuition and other educational expenses at West Texas A&M University. Her brother, Dan Casso, along her mother and father, Becky and Carlos Casso, were there to watch as she accepted her prize.

“Thank you Braum’s and Dr Pepper for this wonderful opportunity to help further my education,” said Casso.I am surrounded by inspiring people; from my professors, to my family, to my coworkers, and to my friends. They’re all hard working people who produce quality work and care about bettering not only themselves, but also bettering the community.”

Casso is currently a junior at West Texas A&M University and is studying music education. She has been with Braum’s for four years.

The third winner was Torri Rillema. She has also been with the company for four years and said that they award came at the perfect time.

“Between the generous help from my family and this award, I will be able to get this semester paid for and remain debt free,” she said. “All of the hard work the last four years, at work and school, is definitely starting to pay off!”

She is currently a senior at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma studying Elementary Education.

This is the third year that Braum’s and Dr Pepper have been working together to award tuition prizes and it just continues to evolve.

Braum’s Manager Kris Seek presented employee Torri Rillema with a $1,000 check earlier this month. The prize can be used to go towards the cost of her tuition and other educational expenses at The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.

“We love being able to provide a contest that can help our employees with their higher education costs, and in turn, help fulfill their dreams,” said Drew Braum, President and CEO. “These three are extremely hard workers and great assets to the company. We wish them the best of luck in all their endeavors.”

The Dr Pepper tuition award can be used to cover college or post-secondary vocational institutional tuition, fees, books, supplies, equipment, related educational expenses or on-campus room and board. The tuition award can also be used to pay off student loans for eligible costs.
