About Wereldburgers

Hamburger restaurant Wereldburgers first opened its doors in October of 2013. Wereldburgers is inspired by a true love for burgers and a passion for quality food. We serve the best burgers, homemade wedges and salads, at an affordable price. Everything made fresh daily, with pure and organic ingredients.

For the burger & beer enthusiasts we have a comprehensive beer menu on which you'll find a beer to your liking.

Wereldburgers atmosphere

Wereldburgers' interior design has got the look and feel of an old factory or warehouse. Robust materials like wood, concrete and steel are combined with warm, Mediterranean elements. The Spanish mosaic floor tiles in the back of the restaurant are a real eye-catcher. Combined, this makes for a relaxed and casual atmosphere where everyone will feel right at home. It's also a great place to have a chat with some of your fellow burger lovers.

The concept

The concept of Wereldburgers is based on respect for people and the environment we live in. We pride ourselves in working with a mix of organic, local and sustainable ingredients. The buns are specially baked for us everyday by bakery Rob van Dijk. The potatoes for the wedges come directly from the farmer and the wedges are made fresh daily.

Organic meat

All the meat we use for our burgers is organic. The minced meat for the beef-, chicken-, pork- and lamb burger is freshly ground daily by butcher's shop "de Groene Weg" at Boterdiep in Groningen. In consultation with de Groene weg, we try to serve the best burger every day. We pay attention to the percentage of fat, the grinding and the correct seasoning of the meat.

The Wagyu meat comes from Bioboer Jan Steenbergen from Ansen. The Japanese Wagyu grow from birth on the farm and they are fed with own produced organic grass, grass silage and cereals making it a 100% Drents regional product.

With the Cranberry Rock we have won the second prize in a national burger competition. All our burgers can be served with Wagyumeat.

Wereldburgers founder Jakob Waninge

As a true Groninger, Jakob Waninge found something missing in his city. He recognized a gap in the burger landscape — a lack of a friendly, relaxed place to have a quality burger. Seeing this, he decided to start such a place himself. Before this, he worked as a high school teacher on the subjects of economics and geography. During his years as a teacher he loved teaching his students about Responsible Business: running a business in a sustainable and socially responsible way. Nowadays he puts these principles into practice, running Wereldburgers with a respect for the people and the planet.
