From humble beginnings as Canberra’s original and beloved food truck selling delicious burgers out of their little red van in Bowen Park, Brodburger has grown in the past 10 years to now have two popular locations. One is on the premises of Capital Brewing Co in Fyshwick and the other is at Kingston Foreshore at Canberra Glassworks.

Brodburger co-owner Joelle Bou-Jaude explains: “Our favourite memory over the past 10 years would definitely be when we first opened up our caravan at Bowen Park. We were equal parts excited and scared as we had put everything on the line for our little red van. We had a feeling it was going to be special, but it overtook our expectations once we saw all the support from the Canberra community. Til this day we feel so blessed to be a part of it.”

As a way to say thank you to Canberra for supporting them over the last 10 years, Brodburger will be hosting an epic birthday party on Saturday 30 March to celebrate! The milestone birthday will be held at their Kingston location and involve three hours of free burgers, live entertainment including bands, performers and DJs, lawn games, a photo booth, and a scavenger hunt with plenty of prizes.

Celebrations will kick off at their Kingston venue at 5 pm. The scavenger hunt will kick off at 3 pm and finish at 5 pm at the Glassworks, just in time for the three hours of free burgers beginning at 5:30 pm.

“The Canberra community has shown us constant support since we first opened our caravan in 2009, where customers would wait for up to two hours for a burger,” co-owner, Sascha Brodbeck explains.

“Luckily, we have expanded to more locations, so our wait times are nowhere near as long, but we still owe so much to our loyal customers. They are the reason our business has been able to expand and flourish over the years. Their support has helped us overcome many challenges and get to where we are today,” adds Sascha.

Brodburger’s 10th birthday party will indeed have a community focus, embracing and showcasing local suppliers, talent and other community members to help bring the event together.

“We’re all about supporting local as supporting local is what has built the Brodburger brand,” Joelle explains.

“Canberra Glassworks will also open to the public on the night while glass artist, Annette Blair, creates two amazing glass Brodburgers! One of these will be raffled off on the night, with proceeds going towards all charities involved,” adds Joelle.

The event will also raise funds for local charities, with customers on the day encouraged to make a donation in return for the free food and entertainment on offer.

“We’re excited to support worthy causes and give something back to the community while we celebrate ten years.”

Mouth-watering burgers to mark 10 years.

As for their plans for the next 10 years? Joelle shared, “We just want to keep making delicious burgers, using the best quality ingredients, using local suppliers when we can (we now use a local farmer for our beef) and working on our product making it better and better. With a possibility of one or two more locations in Canberra.”

I love Brod’s, it is the number one destination for my cheat meals. They seem to have it all together – the burgers, the other side dishes, the presentation of the food. The only drawback is the long lead-in time but that can be avoided by ordering via the app before setting off.

Others have come along trying to take the crown but they lack gravitas (and taste). I’ll be there on Saturday and no, I’m not being paid to say this 🙂
