TRIPLE O’S CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF A TASTE LIKE NO OTHER
Beloved B.C. Quick Service Brand Marks Occasion by Offering Original Burger for Original Price on September 20, with Partial Proceeds Donated to Food Banks BC
Twenty-five years ago, White Spot Restaurants opened the very first Triple O’s in the heart of the Robson Street shopping hub in Vancouver. Created to bring White Spot’s best-selling burgers, fries and shakes to shoppers and tourists on the go, the streamlined burger concept was an exciting evolution of the brand, featuring its most popular menu items in a reduced footprint.
The premium quick service brand was an instant hit, winning guests over with 100% fresh Canadian beef burgers, fresh-cut Kennebec fries, hand-scooped milkshakes, and its Secret Triple “O” Sauce, and keeping them as forever fans thanks to its commitment to flavour, quality and giving back to the community. Now, the Triple O’s brand includes 64 premium quick service restaurants throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Asia, along with five mobile Triple O’s ‘On the Go’ food trucks.
“From the day our first restaurant opened in 1997, the community has embraced Triple O’s,” said Warren Erhart, President of White Spot and Triple O’s. “We’re beyond grateful for the loyalty and support over 25 years from our partners, guests, suppliers, team members, and franchisees. Here’s to the next 25!”
To mark the occasion, this year’s 25th anniversary celebration features a throwback price as well as generous support to fight hunger throughout B.C. For one day only — on Tuesday, September 20 — Triple O’s Original Burger will be available for $3.49, just as it was at the Robson Street location on opening day. And for every Original Burger sold that day, Triple O’s will donate $0.50 to Food Banks BC. The provincial association of food banks supports 105 hunger relief agencies throughout the province, ensuring that the anniversary celebration donations stay in the B.C. communities where the funds are raised.
“In these challenging times, many people are turning to food banks for assistance. Our work at Food Banks BC is made possible because of campaigns such as Triple O’s 25th Anniversary Celebration,” said Dan Huang-Taylor, Executive Director or Food Banks BC. “We are deeply grateful for our partnership with Triple O’s and their support in the fight against hunger in B.C.”
Cathy Tostenson, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for White Spot and Triple O’s, said giving back to the community is a key element of the anniversary celebration. “It’s exciting to reach such a milestone, but knowing we can help raise awareness and funds to fight hunger makes it even more meaningful and relevant.”
Fun facts for a fun 25 years – in 2021, Triple O’s sold:
Enough beef patties to equal 29 “Big Nickels” (the nine-metre replica of a 1951 Canadian nickel, located in Sudbury, Ontario);
Enough ice cream in milkshakes to fill 572 kiddie pools;
