New burger joint in Pueblo having a trickle down effect

A new burger place in Pueblo is putting a twist on the American classic. Bingo Burger serves a burger with green chilies mixed in with the beef. Another thing that sets them apart is their commitment to other local businesses.

Richard Warner opened Bingo Burger in December, choosing to use local ingredients. The beef comes from a ranch outside canon city, the potatoes from the San Luis Valley and the peppers from Pueblo.

Warner is using his business venture to help Southern Colorado as a whole, "when you're buying from local suppliers, local people, that's helping the local economy."

Cheri Pullara owns Pepper Plus Farms in Pueblo and provides the chilies for The Bingo Burger; a burger with chilies mixed into the beef. "He {Warner} called me one day and said, Cheri, we want to do a burger with Pueblo chilies in it and I said well that's great!" says Pullara.

Pullara has seen her business increase and it's a partnership that comes full circle, "I don't want to buy products from California if I can help it. I'm trying to support local businesses and hope in turn they're supporting us as well," says Warner.

If you want to try Bingo Burger it's located at the intersection of first and court in downtown pueblo. For more on Bingo Burger click here.
