Los Angeles based Umami Burgers just received $20 million from Fortress Investment Group in order to fund expansion. Umami has built quite the buzz for their modern burgers in California and now are looking outward. Umami is looking to open 13 locations in 2013, including Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington D.C., Miami and New York.
Maybe as they expand outside of California, they’ll bring back their foie gras and jelly doughnuts.
