Power Trio Backs DMK Burger Bar


A burger from DMK Burger Bar, which is rolling out a franchise program.

Michael Kornick is not a very good person to talk to when you’re hungry and stuck in the office. He’s a five-time James Beard-nominated chef and one of three partners rolling out a franchising program for DMK Burger Bar, and he described the burger pictured nearby, along with the favorites of his partners’, in mouth-watering and excruciating detail one day this week, at lunchtime.

I’ll have a more detailed story in an upcoming print edition, but in the meantime will introduce Kornick’s partners: David Grossman is a Freshii franchisee in Chicago and the man who dreamed up the giveaway of a franchise if the Chicago Cubs won the World Series last year. If you recall, they miraculously did. David Morton is the son of Morton’s Steakhouse founder, and brings hospitality, training and operations chops, especially, to the franchise.

Why a burger place? Because everybody loves burgers, and they want to add their high-quality offerings to the mix. A DMK Burger Bar costs $312,500 to $469,000 for a food court location, and $478,000 to $769,500 for an in-line store. Grossman even offered to feed me the next time I’m in Chicago—an offer I will not refuse.
