The WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro is one of Downtown Milton’s favourite businesses. Their custom burgers have been widely popular in the Milton community ever since they opened their location in 2013. What makes their burgers so special? They are mixed to their unique specifications and pressed daily. They are never frozen, and offer a variety of burgers to choose from, including beef, turkey, elk, bacon beef, veggie, turkey, and cheese stuffed patty! These options allow a personalized dining experience.
The WORKS franchise originated in Ottawa 16 years ago, and has grown to 27 locations. The WORKS Milton is located at 190 Main Street East and is owned and operated by business partners Brian Cachia and Matt Martindale. One of their favourite things about Milton is that it is an elegant, family-based community.
They officially opened their doors in June 2013, and have achieved great success in the Milton community. The WORKS has a unique way of operating that requires the owner to also work in their location. This expectation provides every restaurant with an extra touch of service.
One of the owners’ favourite parts about their work is seeing people take pictures of their orders. They take great pride in the hard work that goes into providing each customer with a custom meal. When customers take pictures of their food it shows that their hard work is noticed and appreciated by their customers.
Something unique about The WORKS is that they do not have TVs or Wi-Fi in their restaurant. Their goal is to provide an enjoyable dining experience without interruptions or distractions. They want the focus to be on enjoying good food, service and company.
