356 – Huxtaburger’s Daniel Wilson on how sharing your knowledge can build you a tribe.

356 – Huxtaburger’s Daniel Wilson on how sharing your knowledge can build you a tribe.

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.

A mighty fine Huxtaburger

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

  1. Hey Timbo, yet another great interview. I really like Daniel’s candid approach to the way they do business. Also like the addition of Dale’s productivity tool as well. Will be giving it a go.

  2. Thanks for the kind feedback, Daniel. Yes, Daniel’s candidacy is refreshing – too many business owners shy away from being like that. And agree, Dale’s new segment is solid … he has some great tools coming up, as well. Be sure to book a free seat or two at one of his upcoming events at http://www.52ways.biz
