Iconic BC Chains Celebrate New Menu Additions in Sneak-Peek Weekend Sept. 19-20 with $2 From Each Impossible™ Burger Sold Donated to Variety – the Children’s Charity and a 1,000 Impossible™ Burgers Giveaway Contest
VANCOUVER, BC (September 15, 2020) — Beloved BC restaurant chains White Spot and Triple O’s are reaffirming their 92-year-strong commitment to burger leadership and menu innovation by introducing the Impossible™ Burger on all menus. The move makes White Spot and Triple O’s the first family-casual and quick-service restaurant chains in Canada to feature the award-winning Impossible™ Burger from Impossible Foods.
Available at all 62 full-service White Spot’s and 39 quick-service Triple O’s across BC and Alberta beginning September 19, the made-from-plants patty will be showcased as part of a new fall menu launch that provides more delicious choices and includes the following Impossible™ Burger creations:
- Available at White Spot: The Avocado Impossible™ Burger (fresh avocado, pickled onions, crisp lettuce, vine-ripened tomatoes, jalapeño ranch), served with a choice of Caesar salad, The Spot’s Salad, or creamy coleslaw and ‘endless’ Kennebec fries.
- Available at Triple O’s: The Original Impossible™ Burger (crisp lettuce, vine-ripened tomatoes, secret Triple ‘O’ Sauce & signature pickle on top). Guests can combo up their burger with a selection of sides & beverages.
Guests can also substitute the Impossible™ patty into any burger on the menu at White Spot and Triple O’s locations.
“For more than ninety years we have kept our menus fresh by innovating, adapting and providing our guests with the best tasting dining experience”, says White Spot President Warren Erhart. “Being able to offer more plant-based protein like the Impossible™ Burger patty further underscores the importance we place in offering a variety of options for meat lovers, meat reducers and flexitarians alike at White Spot and Triple O’s.”
CHARITABLE LAUNCH WEEKEND FOR VARIETY
This Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20, White Spot and Triple O’s will give guests a chance to be the first to try the Impossible™ made-from-plants patty in their new burger creations, and will donate $2 from every Impossible™ Burger sold over the two days to Variety – the Children’s Charity, a charitable partner since 1966. To celebrate the launch, White Spot and Triple O’s will also be giving away a total of 1,000 FREE Impossible™ Burgers — hungry burger lovers are invited to enter the giveaway via whitespot.ca/contest and tripleos.com/contest.
“Canadians specifically asked to get Impossible Burger to White Spot and Triple O’s,” says Nick Halla, Senior Vice President for International at Impossible Foods. “Getting it on the menu so quickly is a great testament to how White Spot and Triple O’s genuinely listens to and pleases their fanbase.”
