How to get a free burger if you are in Cardiff today

100 free smashed burgers and chips will be given away in the Cardiff branch today from 11.30am

Honest Burgers

Lunch is on Honest Burgers today – Tuesday 26th September, as the British burger chain announces it will be giving away 4,000 (100 per site) free smashed burgers and chips for one day only.

The delicious treat is to celebrate the launch of the restaurant’s crowdfunding campaign as it plans to expand into the quick-service burger market.

100 smashed burger meals – one of the chain’s most popular and best value burgers, available for less than £10 including chips – will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis from 11.30am for customers to either take away or eat in at each of Honest’s 40 nationwide restaurants.

As part of the free 4,000 burgers initiative, one lucky customer will also win a ‘Golden Shares’ prize. The winner will receive £5,000 worth of shares in Honest Burgers and make them an immediate co-owner of the brand. Details of how to enter will be available on arrival at the restaurant.

Fans and customers are invited to invest and help fuel the launch of a brand-new quick-service style restaurant due to open next year, which will serve a range of smashed burgers, with their iconic rosemary salted chips, alongside new sides and milkshakes. Honest believes it can challenge bigger brands in the market in a set-up built for speed, convenience and exceptional value for money, whilst never compromising on their Honest quality.

A smashed burger is literally smashed into the grill, maximising surface area and creating a tasty sear, while locking the juices in. Following the launch of the smashed burger in October 2022, it is now one of the top-selling burgers on the menu at Honest Burgers.

Tom Barton, co-founder of Honest Burgers, said: “We started in a marquee, in a muddy field, mostly in the rain! It’s fair to say, we never dreamed we’d get to where we are today. One thing for sure is we wouldn’t have got here without our loyal customers. So we wanted to give them the opportunity to become co-owners of the brand as we set up for the next chapter in our story. And nothing says thank you better than a free burger! We’ve been totally overwhelmed with the response to our crowdfunding campaign and we’re super excited that our customers can join us for the next stage of our adventure”. 

On top of becoming a proud co-owner of Honest Burgers, being a shareholder will also come with a variety of perks and rewards dependent on the level you invest including; free burgers and chips, ongoing discounts with an Honest Equity green card, limited edition Honest Burgers merchandise, and the opportunity to host a free burger party at one of the restaurants.
