Daniel Wilson is a chef and co-founder of Huxtaburger, my favourite burger joint (everything in moderation , of course ;0). Huxtaburger is a very understated burger brand that’s in 5 quality locations around my hometown of Melbourne.
There’s a couple of things I love about the Huxtaburger brand – one is in its marketing. Specifically, Daniel has written a recipe book that step-by-step explains exactly how to make the world’s best burger. So, in theory, you could follow all his instructions and go in to direct competition. In theory.
Listen in as we cover some serious marketing ground including:
- What makes Huxtaburger more than just another burger joint
- How Daniel and his friends went from working as chefs to opening their own restaurant
- Daniel’s personal philosophy of doing what you love – whether that’s cooking food you love or using your passions otherwise
- How Huxtaburger’s name and classic menu came to be
- The unique challenges and benefits of starting a franchise
- How Huxtaburger’s new brand refresh focuses the company on diversity
- Why Daniel wrote a book, The Huxtaburger Book, with the secrets to making a perfect burger
- The reason your brand experience is so important to creating an emotional attachment with customers
But that’s not all. In this episode of your favourite marketing podcast …

- He’s never spent a cent on advertising. The marketing landscape has changed significantly – advertising is absolutely a small component part of marketing, and there are many other ways you can promote your business.
- Share that mountain of knowledge you’re standing on! Express your opinions, share your knowledge, become the opinion leader. Sell the experience and don’t worry about keeping secrets.
