For this holiday season, Milo’s wants to do something special for Alabama. Starting on Monday, November 15, this Birmingham based hamburger chain is selling bottles of its fan-favorite sauces. A part of the profits will be donated to Better Basics, a nonprofit to advance children’s literacy in Central Alabama.

“We are excited to offer a ‘little something extra’ to our loyal customers, near and far, throughout the holiday season.

Through our sauce campaign, we chose to partner with Better Basics and support the incredible work they are doing within our local communities. Their mission perfectly aligns with the goals of Milo’s Little Something Extra Foundation–create opportunities for our youth by empowering them through education and leadership development.” 

Mary Duncan Proctor, Marketing Director, Milo’s Hamburgers

Better Basics works to help kids from birth to 12th grade in Central Alabama learn how to read and write and to become better students through its programs, including:

  • Book nooks
  • Community-wide read-alouds
  • Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library
  • Reading and mathematics intervention
  • Summer STEAMER

“Last year, many young students suffered academically as schools operated in a completely virtual setting. 

Through our partnership with Milo’s, we will be able to empower more children in the Greater Birmingham community by providing additional support to students who need it most.” 

Kristi Bradford, Executive Director, Better Basics

Lookout for these Milo’s sauces at all of the 22 locations and the traveling Burger Bus:

  • Double-O sauce
  • Honey mustard
  • Milo’s signature sauce

Each bottle is $5, and $2 will be donated to Better Basics for each bottle bought. Are you a Milo’s fan and live outside of Alabama? Don’t worry, you can still get a bottle. Milo’s is partnering with Nourish Foods to ship bottles across the country. Each order will come with tasty recipes to make with the sauce.

Birmingham locals, lookout! On Monday, December 6, the Milo’s Burger Bus will be parked at Better Basics to sell lunch and bottles of sauce:

Get ready to stock up on Milo’s sauces and to give back to the local community this holiday season.
