We've got a lot of thanks to pay. About 6 million dollars’ worth to be exact. Because you believed in a little idea we had way back in 2011, Local Matters lives on and it lives strong.
Your votes give a hand up to local community groups so they can keep doing what they love, and that’s what really counts.
You probably know the drill. Order up and you'll get a token to vote in-restaurant or online. Get to know the local groups in your community and use your token to vote for their cause.
Every burger equals a vote. You’ll get a token to vote with in-restaurant or when you order online.
Place your vote. At the end of the month the jar with the most tokens receives $300, the 2nd and 3rd are given $100 each.
Your votes and involvement helps us hand back over $70,000 a month to local communities.
Before we turned Local Matters into a “thing” we were already jumping in to run burger BBQ’s at primary school fetes, sponsoring footy clubs and handing over vouchers for school raffles. At the time we just wanted a way to give back more to our community supporters and to get our favourite guests (you) in on it too.
