Free Burgers And Beer To Celebrate New Home At MediaCity General Store
Much-loved independent retailer, General Store is to provide a more permanent home for local burger brand What’s Your Beef, who will be moving into the group’s MediaCityUK store on Friday 3rd September.
To celebrate, General Store MediaCity and What’s Your Beef are throwing a burger bash, alongside their friends at Manchester Union Lager, and everyone’s invited!
From 3pm – 7pm What’s Your Beef will be giving away 100 free burgers – including their incredible “Stateside Deluxe” as well as their “Got No Beef” vegan burger.
There will be music from a DJ and FREE beer from Manchester Union Lager too. Burger fans should head over to General Store MediaCity to join in the celebrations – because when the free burgers and beers are gone – they’re gone!
What’s Your Beef joined General Store MediaCity when they opened in May, and the two local independent brands have been working together to bring brilliant burgers to Salford Quays ever since.
Jasmine Brannan, Area Manager Store Retail Group commented:
“We love everything that What’s Your Beef stand for – a local, quality, independent brand with a massive passion for what they do. So we were excited to create a more permanent residency for Neil and his team at General Store MediaCity and to be able to keep bringing those brilliant burgers to the community.”
Born out of an idea by two pals from Rochdale, What’s Your Beef ethically sources their beef from a local award-winning butcher and pride themselves on making the best burgers in the land.
