New Norman eatery S&B’s striving to make burgers an art form

NORMAN — If you’ve been down Main Street lately, you may have noticed that Coach’s has been replaced by S&B’s Burger Joint.

A soft opening of the burger joint was held earlier this month in which all proceeds were donated to Norman’s Food and Shelter. Customers were only asked to donate $5 per table to try anything on the menu.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony also took place Thursday at the Norman location — which has had a major facelift since the owners purchased the building.

“The decor has changed totally,” said Shannon Roper, an owner of S&B’s. “Other than decor and the quality of food and service increase, we’re also involved in the community pretty substantially, especially in all of our other stores and we’re bringing that to Norman as well.”

There are three other S&B’s Burger Joints in Oklahoma located at 59th Street and N. May Ave., 9th Street in midtown Oklahoma City and I-240 and S. Walker Ave. The burger joint also has a burger truck they book for events.

Each location also donates 10 percent of all sales one day a week to go towards a local organization or an individual that’s in need.

“We do ‘pay it forward’ charity events every Tuesday,” Roper said. “Every single week of the year.”

Roper said last year, between all of their locations, they gave more than $50,000, and this year they plan to give a lot more. In order to continue the tradition in Norman, the burger joint is currently searching for local Norman charities to donate to.

“We try to stay extremely involved in the community and give back,” he said.

Organizations in Norman interested in signing up for the “pay it forward” program are encouraged to email burgerjointsshannon@gmail.com.
