Zephyr Burgers founder Oz Harborth said in a post on Facebook, “Can’t believe we’ve made it to the finals of the National Burger Awards! We’ll be up against some of my OG burger faves on the 20th April in London. What a fucking buzzz!”

So as you can see he’s very stoked for it.

Speaking to Oz directly, he added, “Bleecker Burgers are one companies that inspired me to start making burgers in the first place. When I was living in London, I’d make a point of crossing town to get one of their Double Black burgers. So to be going up against them in a national competition is both an honour and a total thrill.”
