At GetintheLoop we have full appreciation for every business owner and entrepreneur who works hard to service and provide for their community, family and friends. We know all about the hard work and effort that goes in to making your business viable and vibrant; we live it everyday!
With everyone’s journey to finding their career path being different we believe summer for college students is a time to embrace a variety of jobs, locales and identities that will eventually (and hopefully!) lead to one’s true calling!
“The opportunity sort of just presented itself to be honest. I was looking for an entrepreneurial project for the summer, my dad has a ton of restaurant experience I could learn from, and we have a great location. It was kind of a no brainer.” – Wes Stinson
As with most successful businessman and entrepreneurs, Wes recognized early the importance of mentorship and has embraced the guidance of his father Steve, who has gained 30+ years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry with The Keg Steakhouse and the development of other local favourites like the Train Station Pub and Mission Tap House.
The restaurant itself is a twist on the “Burger Bar” trend that you find in the big cities right now. “We wanted to specialize on just a products that we knew we could really champion. In doing so, we’re able to provide our guests burgers made from fresh Canadian chuck, fries that were cut in house earlier that day, and 20oz pints of BC craft beer— all at a better price than anyone else in town.” as Wes explained.
Not only do they have a burger selection ranging from bacon cheese burgers made with with poutine and maple mayo (The Blame Canada) to Coconut Shrimp Patties and veggie patties, they also have salads, starter, live music on Fridays and some of the best craft beer and local wines too!
Give BurgrrBar at 1570 Water Street a try – you won’t be disappointed. It is the perfect place to stop in with the family to get out of the heat, it has a bar to sit with friends to watch sports, or simply just to enjoy a good burger and drink.
