How did Next Level Burger come to be? Matt de Gruyter tells Seattle-based Forbes writer, Ronald Holden, why he and his wife decided to bring healthy food options to the masses.

People want to be healthier, de Gruyter says. “Ten years ago, a third of the country said they wanted to reduce their consumption of red meat,” he said in an interview. “Now it’s two-thirds of the country, and dairy, too.”
