Vera's Burger Shack has once again won the award for "Best Burger in Vancouver" in the Westender's 'Best of the City Dining Reader's Choice Awards 2013'. This is the 11th year in a row the franchise business has taken top prize.
What started as a beach concession in the 70's at Kitsilano Beach has turned into a Vancouver institution thanks to Vera's commitment to quality and freshness.
Co-owners Gerald Tritt and Noah Cantor told BeTheBoss: "We are prouder than punch about this and realize that we couldn't do this without our customers - our amazing band of Veravangelists - who keep voting us the Best in Vancouver in not only the Westender poll, but also the Georgia Straight's Golden Plates and the Courier's Stars of Vancouver polls, the three largest readership polls in our city, an incredible 10 years in a row and counting! We are humbled by our fans' loyalty and are committed to continuing to serve them the tastiest and freshest burgers, fries, and shakes on the planet - until we've won all three 100 times a row. Then we start over and see if we can do it again!"
What's next for Vancouver's Best Burger? After growing to 17 locations in the Vancouver area, Vera's Burger Shack has its sights set on the other side of the Rocky Mountains. Here at BeTheBoss, we are excited to be the first to announce that Vera's Burger Shack will be expanding into Alberta in 2014.
No one knows quality meat like an Albertan, making Vera's Burger Shack a natural fit for the region. Vera's is currently seeking both area developers and single restaurant franchise partners in the province. If you are interested, please don't hesitate as we expect prime territories to be snapped up quickly.
In the near future, someone is going to open a Vera's Burger Shack in your community, will that someone be you?
