Who are the Bunheads?

Our family's story started out pretty simple.

Papa Bunhead had been working for years at the Aunt Millie's headquarters. He worked hard but he always felt the pull of the road – and that's when he got his big break. In 2014, he joined the Aunt Millie's marketing team as a member of the Tailgate Invasion crew, traveling to college campuses and helping to take tailgate parties to the next level by upgrading their buns.

By the time, the 2015 season kicked off, Tailgate Invasion was a family affair. Mamma and Baby Bunhead joined the team and we spent the fall criss-crossing the Midwest on an incredible football roadtrip. 

In July 2016, the Chicago Tribune named Aunt Millie’s the best store-bought burger bun in Chicago. The entire Aunt Millie’s family is honored to be picked, but that led us to ask a bigger question: if we’re the best bun, how do you build the best burger?

To get to the bottom of this problem, we’re drafting Mama, Papa, and Baby Bunhead out of their summer vacation and putting them to work. They’ll be traveling around the Midwest, looking for the best ingredients to pair with Aunt Millie’s buns and craft the perfect sandwich. We'll be using TheBunheads.com to chronicle our journey and let our friends, family, and fans know what we're up to (and where we're headed next.) If you want the most up-to-date info, follow our friends at Aunt Millie's on Twitter and like them on Facebook. 

We're looking forward this quest, and we hope you'll be along for the ride!
