Alex Merchan, Sr. Director, Marketing & Sales Cafes Worldwide of Hard Rock International said, “Our World Burger Tour menu was a fan-favourite last summer, so we’ve remixed the menu and added burgers with authentic, regional flavours from Athens, Mumbai, Montego Bay and more on this year’s tour. Hard Rock Cafe has been serving up burgers since its first cafe opened in London 45 years ago, and our global reach allows us to celebrate this culinary phenomenon like no other restaurant.”
Darryl Mickler, Senior Director of Research and Development for Hard Rock International commented, “Hard Rock wanted to offer a unique blend of spicy, sweet and savoury flavours for our guests to enjoy on this year’s World Burger Tour. Whether we’re serving up coffee beans in Seattle or Tandoori chicken from Mumbai, there is something for every palate.”
