The hunt is on for Ireland's best burger and it's up to the public to decide
Bobos, Eddie Rockets, Thunder Road Cafe... What will it be?
The hunt for Ireland’s best burger has got underway, thanks to Kepak's fourth annual National Burger Day.
In support of the food service sector, the event - taking place on 12 August - has invited members of the public to have their say by voting for their favourite burger.
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 vote online through the event's website here.
The votes will then be gathered and counted, with Ireland’s Best Burger to be announced on National Burger Day.
Meanwhile, participating businesses all over the country will mark the day by offering a 'Buy One Get One Free' exclusive offer on selected burgers.
To top it all off, for every burger purchased and 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.
“We’re delighted that National Burger Day is returning even bigger and better this year,” said Kepak Foodservice Solutions Commercial Director John Savage.
“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.
"National Burger Day is so much more than a competition – it is a celebration of a beloved national food staple and world class foodservice providers. After a difficult year for those operating in the sector, we are excited to host this nationwide battle of the burgers and put a positive spotlight on Irish food outlets.”
National Partnerships Manager at Simon Communities Jennifer Kitson added: “On behalf of everyone at Simon Communities in Ireland, we would like to extend our thanks to National Burger Day, Kepak and all the supporters for their efforts on this campaign.
"We are delighted to be a part of the campaign again this year. Good luck to all those who are participating!”
