The consecutive winner of “Best Burger” awards in Vancouver’s largest readership polls for more than a decade, Vera’s Burger Shack is a preferred supplier of the BC Lions and THE place to watch the game and enjoy a fresh, tasty burger.
Vera’s Burger Shack started as a beach concession in 1977 under the watchful eye of Vera and her husband Frank. Vera prided herself on serving the freshest, tastiest burgers, fries and milkshakes around and had a passion for looking after the people who came down to the beach, sometimes daily, for lunch or dinner. In 2000, Gerald Tritt, a family friend, took over the concession and, under his watchful eye, continued the traditions that have made “Vera’s” an institution among locals and tourists alike; namely quality and freshness.
Since 2001, Gerald and his business partner, former BC Lions Defensive Tackle, and four-time Grey Cup Champion, Noah Cantor, have grown Vera’s Burger Shack into a thriving, award-winning burger chain with 17 locations across Canada.
