Fans Invited to Submit Their Own Creations; Winning burger to be featured on Zinburger’s menu for one week
No one ever heard of the Honolulu Baby Burger featuring charred pineapple, volcanic fire roasted red peppers and SPAM until the one-of-a-kind creation won Zinburger’s Burger Contest last year.
Now, Zinburger is hoping to take it to an even greater level for their 4th Annual Burger Contest.
The upscale gourmet burger concept is inviting burger fans to submit their own burger creations via Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ZinburgerEast) or Instagram (#ZinFanBurger) through August 31.
The winning burger, picked by Zinburger chefs and Facebook fans, will be featured on the Zinburger menu for one week at the 10 east coast Zinburger locations. The winning chef will also receive a $100 gift card.
After the last day for entries on August 31, Zinburger chefs will choose their top three choices. Facebook fans and Instagram followers will then vote for their favorite from September 9-21. Winner will be announced September 22 and the winning burger will be served October 5 -11.
Guidelines for the burger include the following:
- Must use Certified Angus Beef only
- Must use Zinburger’s Bun
- Any and all toppings and sauces allowed
Burger will be chosen and judged on the following:
- Taste (do the flavors combine to create an appealing flavor and texture)
- Mass appeal
- Visual appeal
- Name of the burger
- Complete Recipe
- Creativity – videos, photos, etc.
- Seasonal ingredients/Accessibility of ingredients
- Overall cost to produce
