controlled meat manufacturer from our region who serves the restaurant industry. “For almost 70 years Devault Foods has supported programs that serve people in need.

Each year, Burger Brawl searches for ways to make the event even bigger and better. Devault Foods knew just how to beef up this event and offered participating restaurants their choice from newly launched Signature Ground Beef Blends for use in the competition. Devault Foods unveiled three Signature Blends. They include: Angus Chuck, Brisket and Short Rib Blend
, a proprietary house blend with just the right lean to fat ratio and nice beefy flavor; Angus Ribeye a premium tender cut that is full of flavor; and Angus
Brisket Short Rib Blend, a super flavorful burger with a rich tasting fat
that enhances the juiciness. Several of the participating restaurants
will be using a Devault Foods blend as the foundation for their entry.
In 2017, Brawlers will compete in one of four (4) categories: Bareknuckle Burger, Cut -throat Cocktail, Taco Takedown, and King of the Wing. To turn up the heat, Devault Foods will award each of category winning restaurant with a $1,000 check and a $500 check to each of the People’s Choice winners that can be used toward product.

“Literacy is the foundation to learning.” says Brett Black, CEO of Devault Foods. “A literacy disadvantage experienced by some students is 100% avoidable with the correct tools, programs, and funding. Devault Foods is proud to be the food sponsor for Burger Brawl and to move literacy programs forward.” continues Black.

Burger Brawl began as a neighborhood fundraiser for founders Rob and Maggie Wasserman’s children’s school, The William M. Meredith Elementary School, in South Philadelphia. Five years ago, their goal was to gather a few restaurant industry friends to create a small event at Fleisher Art Memorial that would eventually fund a new computer lab for Meredith. Burger Brawl soon outgrew Fleisher and in 2014 moved to the XFINITY Live! Complex. More than 3,000 people attended and more than 50 restaurants participated.
After funding one computer lab and two technology initiatives, Burger Brawl has set even higher goals. The Philadelphia Burger Brawl in addition to
still funding technology packages, the Burger Brawl has also partnered with The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia in helping to raise funds for Superintendent of Schools Dr. Hite’s initiative, “The Right Books” campaign.
