The votes are in and to the delight of taste buds everywhere, Red Robin is announced Angelic Cox’s “The Jerk Man Burger” as the sixth annual Golden Robin Award Winner. Red Robin’s Golden Robin Contest is a key component of the ongoing partnership between Red Robin, the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival and FIU’s Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management, one of the highest rated hospitality and tourism programs in the United States. As the Golden Robin Winner, Angelic will receive a $10,000 scholarship and the honor of having her burger served at the prestigious Heineken Light Burger Bash presented by Schweid & Sons hosted by Guy Fieri during the 2018 Festival.
“Each year the competition gets tougher and tougher and this year’s Golden Robin Contest was no different,” says Dana Benfield, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Red Robin. “We applaud Angelic’s efforts to create a craveable burger recipe that is unique to the competition and unlike anything we offer on the menu at Red Robin. We hope Burger Bash attendees enjoy eating her award-winning creation as much as we do.”
The Jerk Man burger features an enticing combination of sweet and spicy Caribbean flavors. The burger starts with a juicy all-beef patty flavored with Jamaican seasonings and a dollop of Jerk BBQ sauce. It is then topped with fresh mango salsa and Munster cheese to encompass the taste of the islands in every bite.
Additionally, Red Robin will present its Best of the Bash Award for the sixth consecutive year. All chefs participating in the Festival’s beloved burger competition can enter their burger for a chance to win $10,000 and be featured on Red Robin’s menu. Entries will be evaluated by an expert panel of judges including renowned chef and Food Network personality Amanda Freitag, previous Best of the Bash Award winner Michell Sanchez and Red Robin executives.
