Melbourne Storm and Grill’d launch limited edition burger

NRL team Melbourne Storm has partnered with Grill’d to launch a limited edition burger, Grill’d Storm Burger.

The announcement:

Grill’d has renewed their sponsorship deal with Melbourne Storm until 2023, marking the occasion with news that players have created a limited edition Grill’d Storm Burger for fans to try.

Grill’d Founder, Simon Crowe, says of the partnership, “We feel proud that our burgers are so healthy that they can fuel professional athletes. We know the Storm players love Grill’d, so we thought what better way to celebrate the season than giving fans a burger that’s been created by the boys.”

Six of the Storm players had a hand in developing the perfect combination for the Storm Burger. Brandon Smith, Christian Welch, Cooper Johns, Harry Grant, Josh Ado-Carr and Ryan Papenhuyzen nominated their favourite ingredients, bringing their wish list together to design Australia’s first ever burger created by an NRL team.

It should come as no surprise that Storm hooker Brandon Smith nominated a double layer of cheese as his ingredient of choice, proudly personifying the nickname bestowed on him by Andrew Johns back in 2019. The Storm burger is layered with a plethora of flavours personally selected by the six, including beetroot chosen by Ryan Papenhuyzen as it represents the team colours, avocado insisted by Christian Welch, tomato selected by Cooper Johns (who was a little sad he couldn’t choose two ingredients with pineapple missing out), a beef pattie picked by Josh Ado-Carr, and onion requested by Harry Grant. Cos lettuce, tomato relish and egg mayo make up the remainder of the ingredients which all sit beautifully nestled between a Grill’d burger bun.

The Grill’d Storm Burger is an excellent source of protein with more than 70% of the recommended daily intake per serving, provides 1.5 serves of vegetables, and is a good source of fibre when paired with the Grill’d Low Carb SuperBun.

When asked how the Storm fullback feels about having contributed to the first ever Storm Burger available to the fans, Ryan Papenhuyzen said, “The Grill’d Storm Burger should be a part of everyone’s footy fan pack this season. We’re excited we could give the fans a taste of what we love about Grill’d, and there’s nothing better than kicking back with a burger while you’re watching a game.”

Melbourne Storm Chief Commercial Officer, Nick Haslam says, “We’re excited to continue our partnership with Grill’d and know that the fans will love trying the Storm Burger.”

Fans will be able to purchase the Storm Burger exclusively at Grill’d Richmond (Swan St) on Melbourne Storm home game days.
