A Delicious New Holiday You Can Garnish: National Veggie Burger Day
Petaluma, California and Rohnert Park, California, June 1, 2016 – Amy’s Kitchen and Amy’s Drive Thru announced today that they will kick off a newly established food holiday this year on June 5, 2016: National Veggie Burger Day.
“We’re encouraging everyone to enjoy their favorite veggie burger on June 5,” said Paul Shiefer, Amy’s Director of Restaurants.
Amy’s supports a nationwide celebration of all kinds of veggie burgers and has invited any and all other veggie-burger making companies--as well as home cooks--to celebrate plant-based burgers and the positive impact they have on our planet. Hilary’s Eat Well, Big Mountain Organic, Quorn, Field Roast, Dominex Angel Burgers and GoGo Quinoa will all be joining in the campaign.
Amy’s and Amy’s Drive Thru, the one year-old organic/vegetarian fast food restaurant, will celebrate this new holiday with their customers and fans by kicking off a host of social media activities and a day-of event at Amy’s Drive Thru. Amy’s Ultimate Veggie Burger Grilling Packs will be among the prizes, as well as a BOGO veggie burger deal given away via a secret password on @AmysDriveThru social media channels.
From Amy’s Social Team: “We invite veggie burger lovers everywhere to join the #veggieburgerday fun on social media. Share in the love, fire up the grill, and post your veggie burger pics. Tag your posts with #veggieburgerday so Amy’s can follow along and engage. We hope to make more noise than #nationalburgerday.” For companies who wish to get involved, please contact email@example.com.
