VANCOUVER’S BURGERLAND SMASH UP INTRODUCES NEW FOOD TRAILER HITTING THE STREETS THIS SUMMER
Iconic Smash Burgers Popping Up at Beaches, Breweries and Neighbourhood Hotspots Across Greater Vancouver
Vancouverites, get ready to elevate your beach and brewery bites when Burgerland Smash Up’s new food truck hits neighbourhood hotspots this summer. Building on the success of Burgerland’s already-popular make-at-home ‘smash kits’, the food trailer brings freshly cooked, better burgers to some of the city’s most popular summer destinations.
Ready to roll with owner Bodhi Valentine at the helm, the portable pop-up will feature a menu of Burgerland’s smashing favourites in zero-waste packaging, including Classic American Cheese, Oklahoma Fried Onion & Cheese and California Up-N-Down, as well as a line-up of side salads like the Killer Slaw and the Smashed Tato Salad to complement the burgers.
Coming to a hotspot near you, some upcoming dates for the trailer pop-ups include: the Keefer Yard every Thursday (4pm to 11pm); Strange Fellows Brewing on Friday, July 30 (11:30am – 4:30pm); Locarno Beach on Saturday, July 31 (10:30am – 8:30pm); Tinhouse Brewing on Sunday, August 1 (12pm – 7pm); and Main Street Brewing on Tuesday, August 3 (3:30pm – 9:30pm) and Saturday, August 7 and Sunday, August 8 (11:30am – 10:30pm). The full schedule is available at burgerlandsmashup.com and you can follow @burgerlandsmashup on Instagram for real time updates, daily locations and event announcements.
“I’m stoked to be able to bring our burgers to some of my favourite spots in Vancouver and introduce more folks to our mission of creating better burgers for everyone,” says Valentine. “We’re proud to carry on the burger legacy of the Cheezee Does It food trailer and will continue to serve some of the best tasting burgers around.”
Launched earlier this year by burger aficionado Valentine — who nimbly turned a COVID layoff in the tech sector into a culinary pivot and quest to help fellow burger obsessives raise their at-home burger game — Burgerland Smash Up also offers a variety of four-pack, all-in Smashburger Kits ($39.99) that include the California UP-N-DOWN Kit, the Classic American Cheese Kit,, the Oklahoma Fried Onion & Cheese Kit and the double patty Big Mac-inspired Big Smash Kit. Kits are available for delivery during the week with pick-ups at the commissary space at 1380 Napier Street in East Vancouver.
All of Burgerland Smash Up’s kits are made fresh to order with pre-measured premium ingredients, freshly ground certified organic, grass-fed BC beef or Impossible™ plant-protein smashballs and instructions in zero-waste packaging. All recipes are available in vegan and vegetarian-friendly formats. As an additional nod to its earth-forward stewardship focus, Burgerland Smash Up is partnering with TreeEra to help offset its carbon footprint and donating $1 for every Kit ordered — the cost to plant one tree through the TreeEra planting program.
Looking for a way to reward your hard-working staff or cater a party? Order a ‘Team Smash’ to have a tasty time together and put some fun into corporate rewards. Team Smash Smashburger Kits include grass-fed organic BC beef or Impossible™ plant-protein smashballs, with iconic recipes and vegan and vegetarian options available, to cater to your whole team’s tastes.
