Attention burger aficionados: the revolution is happening. What consulting group Technomic is calling "better burger" chains have taken over the top slots on their list of fastest growing limited-service burger restaurants, including places like Shake Shack (133% growth), Smashburger (116% growth) and Mooyah Burgers & Fries (54.5% growth).

The report does a little parade raining, saying "even a brand growing 150 percent per year is going to be dwarfed in pure dollars by McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger King, which own 75 percent of limited-service burger sales in the U.S." which, fine. (Also 150% growth of any of those three chains would be terrifying.) But, still: good to see some of these places on the top ten list, which happens to be below.
