Umami Burger announced the latest collaboration in its Artist Series, Cameron’s Dallas BBQ Burger by Cameron Dallas, of which a portion of the sales of each burger will be donated to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
“Cameron is an Umami Burger regular and he had a lot of creative ideas for his own burger,” said John Kolaski, President of sbe’s Disruptive Restaurant Group, a subsidiary of sbe, Umami Burger’s majority shareholder. “We played with how to put his own unique twist on a barbecue burger that amps up the heat and the umami flavor.”
Cameron’s Dallas BBQ Burger features Umami Burger’s signature beef patty, with sharp cheddar cheese, miso-maple bacon, tempura serrano peppers, and savory bbq sauce. Cameron’s Dallas Burger is available for $14 starting on December 15 at participating Umami Burger locations nationwide.
“My friends and I have been eating at Umami Burger since I first moved to Los Angeles,” added Cameron Dallas. “The first time I tried one of their burgers, my mind was blown and I’ve always wanted to create my own.”
As part of the promotion for Cameron’s Dallas BBQ Burger, guests will have an opportunity to get a free order of Truffle Fries, one of Cameron’s favorite Umami Burger dishes. Guests who order Cameron’s Dallas BBQ Burger, follow @umamiburger on Instagram and post a photo of the burger with #camxumami simply need to show the post to their server to get a free order of Truffle Fries.
One dollar from each Cameron’s Dallas BBQ Burger sold from December 15 – January 31 will be donated to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is one of the country’s leading pediatric academic medical research centers, providing lifesaving and life-changing care for children from around the world with serious injuries and complex health conditions. CHLA is dedicated to creating hope and building healthier futures for children through comprehensive care, groundbreaking medical research and training the next generation of top pediatric specialists. As a nonprofit institution, CHLA has relied on the generosity of others to fulfill its mission for more than 115 years.
More than just a “digital celebrity,” this model, entrepreneur and content creator has a fan base of over 35 million followers across five different social media platforms. A growing style influencer, Cameron will star in upcoming advertising campaigns for both Dolce & Gabbana and American Eagle. Cameron’s business savvy and interest in developing new talent led him to join and co-produce the global touring convention, MAGCON. He continues to discover and support the next generation of social media talent by inviting them to join the MAGCON family. Cameron will next be seen in “Chasing Cameron” for Netflix, with all episodes available on December 27. Together with close friends he sets out on MAGCON’s first international tour. From Paris to Italy and even down under in Australia, this group’s fan-damonium reaches a fever pitch. It’s not all selfies and snap stories as the series explores the stark contrast between their public online profiles and their personal lives, and gives an unfiltered view into the unique world of digital celebrity.
