How did you first get involved with BurgerFuel? I’m actually not a big fan of Burgers (I’m more like a rice person, ha) but my mate treated me, and took me to have my first Burger in NZ from BurgerFuel to prove that good burgers do exist. He was right and I can still taste my first Bacon Backfire like it was yesterday. BurgerFuel is my first and only full-time job in NZ. I was lucky enough to get the role when BurgerFuel opened a brand-new store in Hamilton back in 2012. I have since moved my way up the ranks and am currently working as a Franchisee Area Manager for multiple stores for a really amazing company.
What was the thing that attracted you the most to BurgerFuel? Genuinely friendly staff, the fast-paced, really fun and positive work atmosphere, the loud culture (never a dull moment). BurgerFuel is also a very progressive company to work for and has made me who I am, working day in and day out in a flourishing work environment.
What do you tell your mates and family about your job, what are the perks? Definitely the free burgers!! Also being able to utilise my creativity when customising my own burger to make my taste buds burst with happiness. In my current role I also get the chance to travel to different parts of the country, meeting the amazing people who are working in our stores and creating good relationships with the team.
What motivates and makes you proud to represent the BurgerFuel brand? BurgerFuel is a unique brand and very different from the mainstream fast-food restaurant. BurgerFuel is a house hold name and I am proud to be a part of this brand as it has completely changed the normal selection of burgers to a more complex, innovative and delicious range of gourmet burgers. Seeing customers coming back regularly speaks volumes about its superior food quality.
What is one of the greatest opportunities BurgerFuel has given you? Career Progression. I have truly excelled and grown in BurgerFuel. Starting as a Crew Member in 2012 and working my way up to becoming a Franchisee Area Manager with great deal of autonomy in my role is something that I cherish dearly. BurgerFuel is also a workplace where you get recognised publicly for the good work you do, and it has made me feel valued and important. It is very hard to find workplaces where you progress and gain recognition based on your quality of work and commitment to the brand.
What is one thing you would say to any potential individual who is looking to work at BurgerFuel? BurgerFuel is such an awesome company to work for as it gives an opportunity to grow and climb up the ladder if you put your heart and mind to it. This company values the right people and I am sure you will get tonnes of laughs and irreplaceable memories.
