Year Of The Burger

burger on cook street

2012 was a great year for burgers in Cook Street Village. One of the highlights for us has been to become the first carbon neutral fast food restaurant in Victoria! Maybe even Canada? At any rate, we’re proud to offer quality fast food that doesn’t have a negative impact on our environment. We’re also grateful to be part of a community that supports sustainable businesses, so thank you.

Here’s to another great year of real fast food!

Egg Lights

Our new state of the art LED bulbs will last 12 years and use a fraction of the energy. We kind of think they look like hard-boiled eggs.

 

What the heck is a Trash-Free Customer Area?

It’s a restaurant that composts all customer leftovers, trays and cutlery. Everything you get on your tray at Big Wheel is compostable! Big Wheel has been working with local compost company, Organico, to turn our compost into nutrient rich soil.

Compost breaks down between 50-70 degrees Celsius. The steam these heaps produce is unreal.

From wrappers and half-eaten buns to nutrient rich soil!
