On Saturday we had our very first pop up event at the Pillbox Kitchen, in collaboration with the wonderful Elisa @happyskinkitchen and we couldn’t possibly be more grateful to you all for making it a fantastic success! You came, you ate, you drank and some of you even managed to conquer a mighty double stack Vurger – seriously, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much!
We also want to say a very special thank you to our wonderful team – the very first brave people to work for The Vurger Co – Fausto, Rodrigo, Athalia and Ed – we salute you, and can’t wait to work with you again soon!
It was incredible to see so many people there and to hear so many amazing comments from you all. We are totally blown away and have updated the ‘Pop up’ page on our website with just a selection of the ones we’ve seen so far! We’ve had so much fun reading them all today and we absolutely can’t wait to do it all over again!
In a wonderful twist of fate, to coincide perfectly with our very first pop up on Saturday, we reached 1,000 instagram followers the same day! We work really hard on it to give you all the very best of us – it’s honest, it’s simple but like everything else we try and do, it’s a reflection of us and who we are and what we love, so we are honoured that so many of you lovely people are even remotely interested in what we have to say.
What did we learn?
So much! If you asked us 6 months ago would we serve food to so many people in a single day, and see so much love and enthusiasm for our food, we’d honestly have said you were crazy. It was so much fun to organise, and there’s so many ideas that we just couldn’t squeeze into this pop up, that we’ll be bringing to the next one.
We saw and felt what it might hopefully be like when we open our first permanent home, we discovered that you love a double stack Vurger and even more importantly, we found out that the best plan of attack with a double stack is “close your eyes, start headbutting with your mouth open and hope for the best!” (thanks @leedangercooper for the advice!!!).
The long and short of it is we are so passionate about what we are doing and we are so humbled by everybody’s reactions. This is just the beginning and we promise that we will keep pushing the boundaries of what a great veggie burger can be, keep working with incredible people and keep feeding you all delicious, natural, soul-satisfying food!
We’re already busy working on the next pop up so keep your eyes peeled for news. If you have any great ideas or suggestions for where we should be next, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we would love to hear what you think!
In the mean time, we’ll be serving up more Vurgers at Tottenham Green Market, starting next Sunday 23rd from 11am to 4pm.
There’s so much more to come. To you, the pioneers, thank you so much. We’ll see you again really soon!
