8 November, 2017: Tune into PBS Newshour Thursday to learn what Michael Pollan thinks of Clover’s Impossible meatball sandwich! Obviously this was a huge honor for us.

A customer, a farmer, and an employee walk into a field of brussels sprouts…

7 November, 2017: Those hands belong to Rob (GM of CloverBUR, for some reason he doesn’t like getting his photo taken). The Brussels Sprout Sandwich is launching this Thursday (Wednesday if you have the Clover App 😉) Brussels season is always bittersweet, every day you have the sandwich, you know it’s leaving soon. Massachusetts is not a huge grower of brussels.… Read More

How it feels to sell Impossible Meat

28 September, 2017: (thanks to this customer -Dave?- for being a good sport and letting me take his picture while he was eating!!!) We’re 5 days into selling Impossible Meat.

Introducing Impossible Burger

21 September, 2017: We’re taking a big step today at Clover. We’re going to serve a meatball sandwich that for many of you may be the best meatball sandwich you’ve ever had. Not a meatball that is “meatball-like” or “almost as good as a meatball.” We’re going to serve something that will be impossible for you to distinguish from meat,… Read More

The veggies in your lunch started their day at Lindentree Farm

28 August, 2017: This is produce growing at Lindentree Farm. Click them and you’ll see Seth, the farmer who just arrived at CloverBUR. Every morning at 6am he texts Hannah, the lead prep cook at Clover Burlington, asking her how many vegetables the store will need for that day. He harvests, and at 10am he arrives at BUR.

Post consumer recycled plastic

14 August, 2017: We’re testing a ton of changes to our menu right now. Most of them are centered around a realization I came to the other day: most of our customers are taking food to go.

Selling water at Clover

5 July, 2017: People have been asking to buy bottles of water since 2008 when I opened the first truck. Those first weeks in October 2008 we had 1 sandwich. No sides. No drinks. It wasn’t a statement, I just didn’t have any to sell. But as we grew I didn’t feel good about selling water in a plastic bottle.… Read More
