Is there really room for another burger joint? The results are in and the answer is yes! Luke Shimp of Red Cow Restaurants figured there were plenty of neighborhood burger joints – especially the kind where the burger and fries come in a basket. He decided to put an upscale twist on the concept -- with an emphasis on quality and a placement in great neighborhoods. Cyndy Brucato of Greater MSP Business recently talked with Luke, who is ready to launch a related concept, Red Rabbit, with a focus on pizza and pasta.
