Forever in our Hearts!

“Forever in our hearts” – Chantele Broderson

The loss of a close family friend led to a burger in his honour and giving back to a local community service club he served with.

Chantele Broderson stepped up as our February Burger of the Month Guest Chef in Lacombe.  She provided the creative juices for the “Pop it Like It’s Hot” burger which included a crispy chicken breast topped with smoked cheddar, peppered bacon & white cheddar popcorn on a brioche bun with pickles, iceberg lettuce and garlic aioli, garnished with crumbled white popcorn‼️ $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Chantele’s local organization of choice the Lacombe Kinsmen Club in memory of Tye Friesen.

Chantele enjoyed a long friendship with Tye “Growing up I called him Uncle Tye, my first memories are of him attending birthday parties for my brother and I. When we moved to Lacombe Tye moved as well shortly after to come work with my dad. After that Tye took on a new role in my life as my boss. We worked together for many years, and I will cherish the time that we spent together even if I didn’t find the job all that exciting! For the last few years, Tye was a friend, he was always someone to lean on. He built a great community around himself in Lacombe and will be missed by many but forever in our hearts!”

The Lacombe Kinsmen Club meant a lot to Tye. He joined the Kinsmen in 2015 and was a very dedicated member, always the first to volunteer when help was needed.  He held almost every position on the executive over the years.

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Chantele helped us deliver $1222 to the Lacombe Kinsmen Club last night (Friday, March 3rd).  Thanks to the amazing support we see from our guests for our Burger of the Month program month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $125,000 to local charities over the past 73 months!  THANK-YOU!


Our March Burger of the Month at our Lacombe location is the “Spring Chicken”, created in collaboration with local Guest Chef Amy Richter!  It includes two house-marinated chicken thighs, peppered bacon, dill ranch, spinach & strawberry medley, with mayo on a garlic buttered brioche bun with a pickle skewer! $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Amy’s local organization of choice – KidSport Lacombe!
