Battle for Ireland’s best burger begins in support of foodservice sector
20 July 2021 | 0
With the reopening of indoor dining now firmly on the horizon and foodservice finally starting to show signs of returning to some degree of normality, the hunt for Ireland’s best burger has begun thanks to National Burger Day.
In support of the foodservice sector, Kepak’s fourth annual National Burger Day is encouraging customers to get out and have their say by voting for their favourite burger, while also showing some much-needed support for local food outlets and operators as they emerge from recent pandemic related closures.
Following a jam-packed virtual celebration last year, National Burger Day is back on 12 August and bigger than ever this year – with outlets across Ireland once again battling it out for the coveted title of Ireland’s favourite.
To top it off, for every burger purchased and a photo shared online with the hashtag #nationalburgerday, a meal will be donated to Simon Communities across the country, with over 14,000 meals donated in 2020 as part of the campaign.
Hundreds of Irish food businesses of all categories and sizes are set to take part in the search for Ireland’s best burger, from much-loved fast-food joints to family owned-pubs, hotels, and speciality burger restaurants.
Voting is already underway and customers across the country have just over three weeks to cast their important vote online through the dedicated website – www.nationalburgerday.ie.
Votes from all corners of the country will be gathered and counted and Ireland’s Best Burger will be announced on National Burger Day, 12 August 2021 – an event sponsored by Kepak, and supported by Flipdish, Blenders, Coughlans and Kilmeadan, with participating businesses all over the country marking the day by offering a Buy One Get One Free exclusive offer on selected burgers.
“We’re delighted that National Burger Day is returning even bigger and better this year,” said John Savage, Kepak Foodservice Solutions commercial director. “After what has been a challenging period for Irish foodservice operators, this campaign truly is the coming together of Ireland’s biggest and best food brands in support of the sector and the beloved burgers on their menus.”
