Our Farmers, Our Family
Meet the good people who bring us our quality ingredients. We're much more than partners in food. We're family. (For real!)
The Brandt family's ranch has been around since way back in 1945. They proudly and humanely raise their cattle with 100% vegetarian diets. They employ crop rotation to maintain healthy soil and composting to reduce the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. The family also uses flood irrigation to attract native birds... which is a much more natural pesticide, as they eliminate unwanted insects!
The Brandt family received the Master Chefs' Institute Seal of Excellence for its commitment to its superior product. It's the ONLY beef producer to ever receive this award!
New York Bakery
Despite the name, New York Bakery is located in nearby Richmond, CA! This small, family-run bakery punches above its weight in dough among so many larger wholesale bakeries nearby. Head baker, Jose Villanueva, used to be a bread delivery man, forming relationships with restaurant owners until he could own a bakery of his own. He met our Chef Jose and the two formed a friendship. Eventually, we asked New York Bakery to make our Super Duper buns fresh every morning for us. And a lasting bread bond was formed.
Straus Family Creamery
Founder Albert Straus and his siblings were greatly influenced by their parents, Bill and Ellen Straus, who were very early environmentalists -- living their lives as stewards of the land.
When they fled to California during World War II, they fell in love with each other, and the land of Tomales Bay. Bill purchased a small dairy farm in 1941 with 23 Jersey cows and began adopting new environmentally-sound agricultural practices before anyone else. Ellen became a famous environmentalist, founding the famous Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT) in 1980, which went on to set the standard for land trusts across the country.
In 1994, The Straus Family Creamery became the first 100% certified organic creamery in the country. It's still a mission-driven, family-operated business, just as Bill and Ellen would have wanted.
We've worked hard to create our own organic, sustainable, biodynamic, wine, working side-by-side with the experienced winemakers at Peregrine Ranch in Healdsburg, CA.
A family-owned and operated business, Peregrine Ranch farms and produces wines with a sustainable footprint, making an effort to have as low an impact on the land as possible.
Our house Zinfandel and Cabernet is 100% organic, with zero added sulfites, preservatives, or other chemicals, served on tap in kegs instead of bottles, eliminating packaging waste while keeping our wine fresh and tasty.
Come try our house wines on tap, available at all Super Duper locations.
New Bohemia Signs
Since day one, we knew the decor in our restaurants had to match the handcrafted quality we put into our food, so we called upon New Bohemia Signs, the longest running sign shop in San Francisco. They painted the first Super Duper medallion in the Castro back in 2010 and we've hired them for every opening since.
They're responsible for all the hand painted signage you see inside and outside our restaurants, putting in the time and effort to meticulously handcraft each sign, the same way we take the time to handcraft your burgers.
To round out our breakfast menu, we found the perfect coffee to pair with our farm fresh organic egg sandwiches and house-made mini donuts. Founded in 1978, Mr Espresso has grown into a Bay Area institution – as a quality roaster and an established provider of espresso equipment, service, and training to a sizable share of coffeehouses and restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
Mr. Espresso continues to be family-owned and operated with two generations of Di Ruoccos working together in their Oakland showroom and roasting facility to ensure that what began over 30 years ago will endure.
We proudly serve fresh avocados grown right here in our home state of California. To give you an idea of what makes California Avocados particularly special, less than 1 percent of the state is suitable for growing them. We’re talking only the richest of rich soil, the freshest coastal breezes and, of course, the friendly California sun. This, accompanied by the care of more than 3,500 California Avocado growers, ensures you of that creamy avocado taste with each slice.
