Costco is stepping up their foodcourt game, testing a new menu item at some of their Southern California locations – a 1/3-pound organic beef patty burger that those in the know are comparing to the infamous east coast chain, Shake Shack.
Costco’s current menu is simple and wallet friendly. The warehouse retailer slings pizza, hot dogs, and simple salads.
The new menu addition is being tested at Costcos in Corona, Pacoima and Lakewood. The only test market outside of California is Seattle.
A Costco representative told the Mercury News that the new “organic cheeseburger” is made with an organic ground beef patty, cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomato and a “Costco” special sauce spread on a brioche style bun.
Will Costco’s Shake-Shack style burger be hitting a food court near you? We hope so. It looks amazing!
