Sacramento-based vegan fast-food chain burger Patch is partnering with the 2021 World's Strongest Man competition as a sponsor. The competition takes place once a year, and this time it takes place in Sacramento for the first time from June 15 20.
Sponsoring the event, Burger Patch will supply the World's Strongest Man competition with on-site catering services.
Burger Patch was created back in 2017 by married couple Danea and Phillip Horn, who opened their first location in 2019. The growing chain brings vegan fast food classics to the mainstream with its menu of burgers, French fries, and milkshakes, such as the classic Patch Burger made from a Beyond patty with melted vegan cheddar, lettuce, tomato, grilled onion, and homemade sauce on a toasted artisan bun; the Ranch, a vegan grilled chick'n breast topped with hickory-smoked strips, lettuce, tomato, and homemade ranch sauce on a toasted bun; crispy breaded chick'n tenders with dipping sauce; and chocolate and vanilla milkshakes made from cashew, almond, and soy milk.
While sponsoring the 2021 World's Strongest Man competition is a first, Burger Patch is no stranger to large-scale sports and entertainment when it was the first 100 plant-based chain to land inside an NBA arena. Since then, Burger Patch has expanded across Sacramento.
Burger Patch also gives back to the community. In addition to its Patch Match program which it gives a portion of its earnings from each burger sold to a selected charity—last year, the company compromised to donate 100-percent of its profits for one month to the #OURSacramento Save Our Restaurants fund, which was established to help save local, independently owned restaurants during the covid-19 pandemic.
