If you have kids, then you have probably already thought about the financial logistics of college. Whether it is a state school or a private school, the costs of sending a child to college today is staggering. According to collegedata.com,
‘the College Board reports that a “moderate” college budget for an in-state public college for the 2014–2015 academic year averaged $23,410. A moderate budget at a private college averaged $46,272.’
This is why we love it when a local company does something out of the box to help children achieve their dreams of being able to afford a college education.
JerryBuilt Home Grown Burgers
JerryBuilt Homegrown Burgers was created by Chad Glauser from our very own Houston Jewish Community. Chad established JerryBuilt in Houston, which he named after his father who helped to create the concept of JerryBuilt Homegrown Burgers. With more than 20 years of experience running companies, Chad is dedicated to growing JerryBuilt as a high-end burger establishment that is committed to integrity, transparency and offering people the burger nature intended. And with two locations, one in Bellaire and one in the Woodlands, you won’t find it hard to stop in for a hormone-free burger and fresh-cut fries.
One thing that makes JerryBuilt Home Grown Burgers unique, other than the fact that they are so dang yummy, is that they believe in the importance of serving the best organic ingredients, and sourcing sustainable, seasonal items from local and regional farmers during each harvest. In fact, their hope is to make this community a better place by supporting the local farmers and ranchers, while partnering with local organizations to teach the kids about the rewards of fresh sustainable food and a healthy lifestyle. The entire Glauser family has a rooted charitable nature, and Chad is proud to bring his charitable spirit to Houston.
