MrBeast Burger is one of the fastest-growing virtual food brands in the world. An idea born out of lockdown from the world’s biggest YouTuber has gone from strength to strength. Now, after just hosting American President Joe Biden, MrBeast, a potential future presidential candidate in the States, is bringing his burgers to Ireland.
What is MrBeast Burger?
MrBeast Burger is a virtual food brand started by the YouTuber, Mr.Beast. What is a virtual food brand I hear you say. Well, virtual food brands don’t have a single physical location. They’re run as a franchise. This means any restaurant that can cook a burger and fries can cook a MrBeast Burger meal. However, you can’t pick it up on the street. MrBeast Burger will be exclusively available in Ireland through Just Eat.
MrBeast started this food business during the lockdown to help support struggling restaurants. Today, the concept is a bit more controversial as people do question the ethics and quality that these virtual food brands can deliver. Pun not intended or avoided.
This is a great video that shows MrBeast’s idea, why he supports it but also some of the murkiness that goes on in the background.
For burger lovers, there’s the “Beast Style” burger which comes with double beef, double cheese, crispy onions, pickles, and “Beast Sauce”. They also have a crispy chicken sandwich, a spicy chicken sandwich, and a grilled cheese sandwich for those who prefer something different.
But that’s not all, they also have crispy seasoned fries, loaded fries topped with cheese and bacon, and even a delicious chocolate chip cookie for dessert.
When and Where is MrBeast Burger Opening in Ireland?
MrBeast Burgers are already available in Ireland. You can order in the below counties, with more coming soon. As I mentioned, there likely won’t be a physical popup restaurant like Wayback Burger did a few years ago. Instead, this launch will be virtual. You’ll only be able to get this delivered to your home or order for collection. You won’t be able to sit down and grab a bite.
You can expect to see as much, if not more, interest in this as those bloody bottles of Prime you’ve seen appearing in shop windows.
It’s expected that MrBeast Burgers will be available in the following counties:
How much is MrBeast Burger in Ireland?
As prices go, MrBeast Burger is ok. The quality is somewhere in between the likes of McDonalds and Bunsen and I think the price kind of reflects that. The Best Style Combo will set you back €16.99. That’s a burger, fries and a drink. That’s the priciest burger on the menu. Drinks are a bit spicy at €3.
Beast Style Fries include caramelized onions, American cheese, pickles, mayo, ketchup and mustard and cost €6.99
I guess the good news is, if the kids are at you to order a MrBest combo, it’s not stupidly expensive (like Prime drinks are for what you get). But it’s definitely not to be considered cheap in today’s climate either.
Who is MrBeast?
Ok, I won’t lie. Most people know this. Which is why I put it down here. If you’re asking this, there’s a good chance you’re a parent who’s just been asked to order a MrBeast Burger. And you have questions.
MrBeast, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, is a YouTuber and philanthropist from the United States. He’s known for creating and starring in viral videos that often involve challenges and stunts along with nearly always giving away loads of money.
In fact, his most popular videos involve him giving away huge sums of money to strangers, such as leaving a $10,000 tip for a pizza delivery person or giving away a million dollars in cash to random people on the street. He’s also done epic challenges including recreating Squid Games.
What really sets MrBeast apart is his generous spirit. He’s used his YouTube channel to raise millions of dollars for charity, including initiatives like planting trees and supporting homeless shelters. This year he somehow managed to cause a debate by curing the blindness of 1000 people. How that started a moral debate is beyond me.
Overall, MrBeast is a great example of using social media for good and making a positive impact on the world. And now, he’s selling burgers.
MrBeast Burger is a virtual food brand and it’s being brought to Ireland by OME, a Dublin HQ’d company that builds virtual food
brands to boost restaurants’ revenue streams.
OME CEO, Seán Murray, explains: “To say we’re incredibly excited to bring MrBeast Burger to Ireland is an understatement. “It’s the most famous delivery-only menu in the world and will already be instantly recognisable to Irish customers”.
Almost a third of people in Ireland admit they’re more likely to order delivery food when compared to two years ago showing just how big an area of business this has become.
