From September 1st to 7th, Le Burger Week is back with a cheesy twist, and, it’s called, Le Cheeseburger Week
From September 1st until September 7th, 2020, gather up your appetite because Canada’s beloved food festival, Le Burger Week, sponsored by Saputo & Lightspeed is back! With Saputo, Canada’s cheese dynasty in the mix, this year’s catch is cheese, cheese, and more cheese, thus transforming Le Burger Week 2020 into Le Cheeseburger Week. Chefs & restaurants across the nation must abide by one rule – integrate cheese or “fauxmage” (vegan cheese) into their burger, because, why not? In addition to providing Canadian’s with a delicious and fun experience, Le Cheeseburger Week is committed to giving back to their local communities notably, through their 2020 affiliation with United Way Centraide. Get ready for the cheese to melt, Canada, as you dive in, mouth first, to Le Cheeseburger Week!
Heading into its ninth year, Le Burger Week has become an annual autumn foodie tradition to look forward to. Restaurants across the nation are asked to think outside the bun and create a unique burger reflective of their overall concept, style, and cuisine. The 2020 edition will replace the traditional call to vote for the best burgers with a call to help through the charity partnerships. Both Lightspeed and Saputo will be awarding the “Lightspeed Choice” & “Saputo Choice” awards to their favourite burgers!
We understand that this year is different, but one thing remains the same – Canada’s love for burgers. To adapt to the current landscape, many of Le Cheeseburger Week’s participating restaurants will be offering their burgers for take-out and delivery, so that customers can still enjoy the festival whether they plan on dining-in or indulging in the comfort of their own home with mobile ordering apps, like Lightspeed’s.
For the past few years, Le Burger Week has remained committed to giving back to communities across Canada. This year, a proceed of select burgers sold in Canada will be going to Centraide and United Way ; philanthropic organizations that collect donations to support a vast network of community agencies that help individuals and families. Locally and nationally, their goal is the same – to create opportunities for a better life for everyone in our communities. United Way Centraide uses local knowledge to make community investments that provide the greatest impact including; food programs, housing programs, job skills training, continued education opportunities, amongst others.
Created in 2013, by Montreal-based entrepreneurs Na’eem Adam and Thierry Rassam, the idea for Le Burger Week was born out of their shared love of burgers and an understanding that their fellow Canadians shared that same love. Adam and Rassam wanted to create a fun and exciting way for burger lovers to interact and support their favorite restaurants, while, at the same time, providing restaurants with the chance to build greater public awareness through their participation. As co-founder Na’eem Adam explains, “Le Burger Week began as a fun local food project to celebrate our city’s (Montreal) love for burgers. Over the years, we have grown into a national festival that continuously helps to stimulate businesses across the nation.”
On September 1st, burger-lovers across the nation are called upon to get stomachs hungry as they get a chance to discover the very best (cheese) burgers that Le Burger Week has to offer. Bon appétit!
