McDonald’s Burger Build Off Competition

McDonald’s USA debuts Burger Build Off Competiton


McDonald’s USA have debuted a new crowd-sourcing build-a-burger competition in the Chicago and Northwest Indiana areas.

Burger Lad® is no stranger to this sort of competition… after all we were one of the finalists at the 2014 McDonald’s UK My Burger held at their Head Office last year.

This concept is not new and has been available in Europe for a number of years now, including Germany, Sweden, Hungary and Austria.

The top 10 entries will make it to the final with a panel of judges choosing the two best – these will then appear on local McDonald’s menus and the burger that sells the most will be declared the winner.

The winner of the Burger Build Off will then receive a cool prize of $5,000 and a seven-day trip to Universal Orlando Resort.
