A&W Canada and Chef Matty Matheson team up to create the "Best-Burger-Ever" Burger

A&W Canada has partnered with the country's most famous burger chef to dream up the best-tasting grass-fed, prime rib burger —  ever! Available for a limited time at A&W restaurants across the country from April 25.

TORONTO, April 20, 2022 /CNW/ - World-renowned Canadian chef, cookbook author, and YouTube star Matty Matheson has joined forces with A&W Canada for an epic burger collaboration.

The new, limited-time burger brings together the two Canadian food icons known for their commitment and passion for serving up great-tasting burgers from simple, top-quality ingredients. The "Best-Burger-Ever" Burger, created by Matheson, features a 4oz grass-fed, prime rib patty, real cheddar cheese, fried pickles, grilled onions, and garlic aioli on a buttery brioche bun.

"This is the burger collaboration Canada has been waiting for!" says Chef Matty Matheson. "A&W asked me to help make the best tasting burger ever—and I totally nailed it. Starting with the best ever cut of the best ever grass-fed beef made simple."

"Brand collaborations are popping up everywhere these days - but we were on the lookout for a true burger fan, who knows their beef, to partner with," says Julia Cutt, Director of Brand Communications and Digital Marketing at A&W Canada. "Matty is the perfect fit for A&W, and we've teamed up to take our grass-fed beef to the next level. We can't wait for Canadians to try what we've created together!"

The "Best-Burger-Ever" Burger will be available at participating A&W Canada restaurants nationwide from Monday, from April 25 for a limited time only, until supplies last.
