October 26, 2016 – CaliBurger announced today that Super League Gaming, which was spun out of CaliBurger in 2014, has issued a press release regarding its Series C financing and growth, at http://finance.yahoo.com/news/super-league-gaming-clinches-5-130000797.html.

“CaliBurger is a technology company that sells great cheeseburgers worldwide,” said John Miller, Chairman of CaliBurger. “Our strategy has been to develop new technology platforms that can impact the guest experience or our restaurant operations, demonstrate those technologies in our restaurants, and then spin out new companies that can attract venture capital funding to deploy the offerings in the broader retail sector. In the case of Super League, we were building an in-restaurant social gaming experience (based on the blockbuster game Minecraft) for our younger guests to enjoy.”
