Fasten Teams Up With Tasty Burger for Free Food, Discounted Rides

Boston's favorite burger and fastest-growing ride-sharing service team up for free food, discounted rides

This Summer, What’s Better Than a Free Ride and a Free Burger? Nothing!

BOSTON (June 23, 2016) – Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch (or dinner or snack) – and a free ride to get there? Well, Tasty Burger and Fasten certainly don’t!

A beloved neighborhood burger joint with homegrown Boston roots, Tasty Burger, is teaming up with one of the City’s fastest-growing, most-highly regarded companies: Fasten, the ridesharing service that puts drivers first and charges riders less. Together, they are making this mouthwatering dream a reality.

Starting today, riders simply use the code TASTY before hailing a drive with Fasten—giving them $20 off their first ride and a free burger from Tasty Burger.

New riders can download the Fasten app to their smart device from Apple’s App Store or the Google Play Store. (No app is necessary to order, consume or enjoy a delicious burger from Tasty Burger.)

Fasten differentiates itself from other ridesharing services by treating its drivers as customers, not commodities. It is the only service that charges drivers a flat fee—a reasonable $0.99 per ride—rather than a 20-30 percent commission per ride.

“As we approach Independence Day, I have to ask: is there anything more American than the freedom to save money on a great ride to get a free burger? I think not,” said Kirill Edvakov, CEO and co-founder of Fasten. “Just as Tasty Burger is proud to offer fresh, local food at an affordable price, Fasten is proud to give its drivers a fair deal and riders an outstanding, affordable customer experience. Together, we’re creating a comfortable, delicious, free opportunity that says ‘Summer is Here.’”

For a full list of rules and regulations, please visit the Fasten blog. The offer is valid at any Boston-area Tasty location except the Fenway location or inside Fenway Park.
