In honor of National Cheeseburger Day, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate this annual melt-in-your-mouth occasion than the reintroduction of Hilton’s Certified Angus Beef (CAB) burger to Hilton properties throughout the country.

Procured through HSM’s partnership with supplier Schweid & Sons, our proprietary patty is made using only the finest and freshest Certified Angus Beef cuts, and the burger has been upgraded to a full half pound for its return to Hilton hotel menus. The newly curated 8 oz. burger was developed through an extensive sampling process, custom formula development and regional market tests as a collaborative effort among reps from HSM, Hilton F&B, Schweid & Sons, Sysco and the Certified Angus Beef industry.

After thorough taste testing (can you blame us?), we landed on our final ground beef patty specification comprised of a proprietary blend of three premium CAB cuts of chuck, round and sirloin, combined through a unique grinding process that creates a soft, airy texture while yielding a complex and savory flavor profile reminiscent of a juicy steak. We admit it: it’s delicious, and HSM is ecstatic to welcome back this Hilton exclusive.

We also want to shine a spotlight on Schweid & Sons, the longstanding supplier of our Certified Angus Beef butcher’s blend patty. While Schweid & Sons has focused their expertise on ground beef since 1978, the company’s legacy actually dates back to the late 1800s, when Harry Schweid sold top-quality meats to butchers and restaurants in New York City’s Lower East Side. Today, Schweid & Sons carries forth this passion with a single-minded dedication to produce the best tasting, highest-quality burger. Only one-in-four Angus cattle meets the industry’s stringent standards for Certified Angus Beef, and after sampling our fresh, customized 8 oz. CAB burger, the proof is in the patty.

Hilton’s Certified Angus Beef burger is available to all Hilton properties within the contiguous United States, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, so connect with us to sink your teeth into burger business sure to beef up your bottom line. Whether returning this crowd-pleasing patty to your menu or adding the CAB burger as a new offering, contact HSM or work directly with your Sysco representative to estimate inventory needs and place orders for this popular proprietary product. And whatever your cheese of choice, make sure to have plenty of slices on hand for Sept. 18’s National Cheeseburger Day celebration, when guests will most certainly be calling for CABs!
