BUBBA burger® Returns To World Food Championships As Presenting Sponsor For Burger Category
ORANGE BEACH, Ala. – BUBBA burger® will again be a presenting sponsor in the burger category of this year’s World Food Championships, held at The Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama Nov. 8-15.
Competitors in WFC’s Burger category – one of WFC’s most hotly contested and fan-favorite events – will be using BUBBA burgers in the “Structured Build” part of the competition, where they will be challenged to create the perfect “backyard burger."
“Fans of World Food Championships turn out in droves for the Burger competition,” said Mike McCloud, CEO of World Food Championships. “Having BUBBA burger® again be part of the World Burger Championship gives competitors a quality product onto which they can unleash their creativity.”
Scores from the “Structured Build” and “Signature Dish” portions will be combined into a single qualifying round score, with the top 10 competitors moving on to second, single-dish round. The scores from both the qualifying and Top 10 rounds will be combined, and the top finisher will be named the 2016 World Burger Champion, collecting a $10,000 prize.
The World Burger Champion will go onto compete against the other eight category champions – Bacon, Barbecue, Chili, Dessert, Recipe, Seafood, Steak and Sandwich – at WFC’s ultimate event, The Final Table. The winner of that competition takes home $100,000 and the overall title World Food Champion.
“To have BUBBA burgers in this competition is so great and makes complete sense. With the quality, convenience and consistency that is a BUBBA burger, it gives all of the competitors a level playing field to showcase their talents,” said Andy Stenson, Vice President of Marketing. “Our burgers are so juicy and flavorful but consistent every time so it’s actually very interesting to see what all of the competitors come up with!”
Now celebrating its 5th Anniversary, WFC will be held Nov. 8-15 at The Wharf, a resort destination with a full-service marina, retail, dining and entertainment options anchored by a multi-use event center and a 10,000-seat amphitheater. The majority of WFC’s food fights occur in Kenmore Kitchen Arena, the largest outdoor kitchen in the world, which measures a full city block with Kenmore brand equipment and $100,000 worth of professional grills from Bull Outdoor Products.
BUBBA burger® is sold in grocery stores nationwide throughout the United States as well as world-wide through the U.S. Military Commissary system. BUBBA burger® is a natural choice for quality and convenience, using only the highest quality ingredients to produce our uniquely shaped, gluten-free BUBBA burgers.
