VANCOUVER, Sept. 11, 2017 /CNW/ - Way back in 1997, when Canadian hockey legend Wayne Gretzky scored his 50th career hat trick, White Spot launched its popular Triple O's brand of premium quick-service restaurants, at the corner of Robson and Thurlow in Vancouver.
Triple O's is celebrating its 20th anniversary of delicious, award-winning burgers, fresh-cut local fries and hand-scooped milkshakes with 20 Days of Giving in support of its long-time charity partner, KidSport BC. From September 10th to 29th, Triple O's will donate 20 cents from the sale of any item from their Original Menu to KidSport BC. Guests can also make cash donations in participating restaurants.
On Friday, September 29th – KidSport Day – a loonie from every combo sold will be donated to KidSport BC, so ALL kids can play! Throughout the month, guests can win daily prizes on social media, plus enter to win a grand prize of free Triple "O" burgers for a year, Triple O's On-The-Go food truck catering for 50 friends and family, and $1,000 in Chevron gas.
Triple O's has a proud history of community involvement. Thanks to our generous guests and teams, we've helped 635 kids and raised more than $250,000 since we partnered with KidSport BC in 2009. Every $400 raised provides one under-privileged child the opportunity to play sports for a full year, plus gain life skills like teamwork and self-confidence. Donations cover annual sports registration fees, and all dollars raised go back to kids in the local community.
Since it first opened its doors to busy Vancouverites, Triple O's has expanded throughout B.C. and Alberta, even reaching as far as Singapore and Hong Kong! Today, there are eight locations in Asia. The convenient burger dining experience can be enjoyed at stand-alone restaurants, plus college and university campuses, Chevron gas stations, Playland and major sporting arenas. Our two On-The-Go food trucks can be spotted serving Triple "O" burgers, signature fries and milkshakes at community and charity events throughout the Lower Mainland.
"Whether they're grabbing a bite on the run, or relaxing with family and friends, our guests have come to trust Triple O's for serving fresh, quality ingredients in a friendly atmosphere," said White Spot and Triple O's President Warren Erhart. "What better way to give back than by supporting kids in the communities we serve!"
