Burgers & Misters: A Love Story

Burgers & Misters: A Love Story

Richard Righton

Richard Righton is a serial entrepreneur. His love and affection for defining a comfortable dining atmosphere paired with a mouth watering menu and an extensive selection of brew, wine and cocktails is seemingly unmatched in the Sacremento area. When he opened his second restaurant, Relish Burger in El Dorado Hills, the intention of offering high quality comfort food along with a comfortable atmosphere was on the forefront of his mind. But comfort during the Sacramento summers can be a difficult challenge, unless equipped with effective cooling solutions that do more than simply fan hot air around. Incorporating high pressure misters to effectively lower temperatures up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit is pivotal in maintaining a consistent patronage across the seasons. Righton saw it as an opportunity to express his affection and continued thoughtfulness for a relaxed dining atmosphere.
