Manager Gene Helmer waves with staff members Brittney, Alison and Janel at the barbeque Budget Lloydminster hosted in June. (As you can see by the picture on the bottom right, Gene is loved and respected by his staff!) Everybody pitched in to make the day a resounding success. The event was attended by hundreds of customers, community members, business people, oil patch workers and truckers. Top Budget Edmonton chefs Russ Lukawesky and Harry Schacker got up at 5 am to make the trip to the Border City and cook up some quality burgers.
It was one of the most successful barbeques of the season with a record number of burgers served. Participation like this proves once again what a vibrant city Lloydminster is. One trucker who had traveled all the way from Texas told Russ, it was the best burger he had ever tasted. You can’t get a better endorsement than that! Over 25 such barbeques are planned for the summer as our traveling Crown Verity grill rarely receives any down time.
