Burgerville, the PBurgerville, the Pacific Northwest’s locally sourced, sustainably-minded fast-food chain, planned their expansion into Corvallis in 2017. Restaurant executives - in this age of big data - sought to learn from their vast pool of data about custom customer ordering.
Like many corporations, Burgerville has limited in-house expertise in business analytics, which falls outside the company’s core competency. Intrigued with the prospect of using big data, Burgerville sought a fresh, new view from outside company headquarters, and turned to OSU business analytics MBA students.

Two teams of 10 students were assigned to Burgerville. One team focused on menu combinations; the other team focused on product promotions.
Students accessed the Burgerville IT infrastructure to analyze data from customer orders.
