Slater’s 50/50 to open in Valencia in former Sisley’s location at Westfield Valencia Town Center Mall.

Santa Clarita, Calif. – Slater’s 50/50 announced on their facebook page that they will be opening in Valencia in December of 2019. The company’s website notes that Slater’s 50/50 was founded in 2009 in Anaheim Hills, California by Scott Slater, a SoCal native with a passion for burgers, bacon and craft beer.

Inspired by the belief that bacon is meat candy, Scott created the original 50/50 patty– made of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef – which now has evolved to include an array of inconceivably “slaterized” items packed with award-winning burgers, loaded flatbreads, over-the-top salads, amped-up milkshakes, tons of beers on tap, and some healthy options, too.

Stay tuned for updates!
