Why is this cold?



I think this company are having a lot of problems. The two guys who set it up are known for being a bit vulgar and offending people. The quality and source of their meat has been in question.

To top it all off this week they are also having massive PR issues over their advertisements offending people.

I suspect that is why they are having a free lunch etc!

I do eat there myself, a free lunch is a free lunch. I suspect for most people that wont change who this company is!

Its account specific I downloaded the app and there's nothing free for me

nothing for me either

It's account specific. I got one as it said I haven't visited in a while (aka I downloaded the app for the 1st freebie then I deleted it).

But interested to find out more about what groenleader's saying. I never knew of any issues.

Agree completely with groenleader that this is a terrible company. Their most recent in a long line of mess ups is their recent advertising campaign (google it and see some of the posters they have put up). As a vegetarian myself I think its a complete insult.

Nothing here either

Heat - i got an e-mail about this too.

Don't have issues with GBK myself, then again, i'm not veggie...

For those who are concerned about the moral compass of GBK (due to the ads, tipping policy...) I suggest the following approach:

- Don't promote the ads any further. They were intended to go viral and cause controversy
- Head to a GBK store near you
- Login to your app, and use the voucher to get a free meal
- DON'T tip, but maybe give the staff a cheeky side tip
- DON'T buy drinks, just drink water

If enough of us go in and take the free meal, I'm sure their profit margins will take a hit.

Freeganism and veganism combine!

This. TBH, I've only been in there once (when I downloaded the app). Now I just get the free burgers when they hand them out. I'm just going to go for my freebie.

Morally, I think the majority of large companies have issues. There are a number that I wouldn't give my money to.

It's free so just taking it

Thanks for this. I used the app the first time I went to GBK and then I hadn't been ever since. (Probably a few years ago to be completely honest), so heat from me. A free lunch is always appreciated!

I quite like their burgers.

Yeah, I found out about their offensive adverts today. They were basically inciting yet more hatred towards a group that can actually be considered as having a 'protected belief' under The Equality Act 2010.

I think they've offered 50% off veggie burgers to say sorry, but that's definitely not going far enough given that they've alienated all the vegetarians. Perhaps if they'd offered a completely free veggie meal that might have shown a real effort to apologise and use the opportunity to make them feel welcome again, but I think the value of the discount is an accurate reflection of how they really feel: on the fence about whether they want to join in mocking vegetarians with meat eaters or retain all the veggie customers they had/could have had in the future.

I might be willing to take a free meal from them in the future (although, I'd feel seriously uneasy about the possibility of them sneaking meat into my meal for the LOLs and/or their now empowered meat eating customers making the experience unpleasant), but I am not willing to give them a single penny of my money if they have that sort of disrespectful attitude towards the person holding the purse strings.

All this bl###y fuss about a bit of burger advertising.
Haven't we got more important things to worry about in todays world.
If you like meat good, if you don't just go and eat your vegetables quietly somewhere else.
