Are you a master of the grill? The titan of toppings? An all-around burger buff? Well, Phoenix’s Zinburger recently launched a competition that might just be up your alley. On May 24, the Fox Restaurant Concept eatery, located at Biltmore Fashion Park, launched the Ultimate Burger Search. Through June 21, Valley dwellers are invited to submit their one-of-a-kind burger recipe to appear on the Zinburger menu for one month–and when it comes to creating the burger, anything goes. “Everyone has their own way of making perfectly cooked, best tasting burger and with our guests always telling us what they would like to see on the menu we thought this would be a great way to take all the suggestions we’ve gotten and put it to a vote,” said Sam Fox, owner of Fox Restaurant Concepts.
First, second and third place prizes will be awarded. Entrants will not only have the chance to win a $100 gift card from Fox Restaurant Concepts (FRC), but also for their winning burger to be on the Zinburger menu for one month, during which they, and the charity of their choice, will receive 50 cents for every one of the winning burgers sold.
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:
Name of the burger
Creativity – videos, photos, etc. Videos can be posted to Fox Restaurant Concepts Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/FoxRestaurantConcepts
Seasonal ingredients/Accessibility of ingredients
Overall cost to produce
Ability of the submitter to participate in media promotions
After June 21, FRC chefs will choose their top three choices and the fourth will be “People’s Choice.” The second phase of voting, June 26 – July 11 will allow guests of Zinburger a chance to taste all four burgers and continue voting online for the winner through July 25. The winning burger will take its place on the Zinburger menu from July 25 through the end of August. http://www.foxrc.com/.
