NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BUBBA burger® has been named the presenting sponsor in the burger category of the 2015 World Food Championships in Kissimmee, Fla., Nov. 3-10.

"We are excited to have BUBBA burger® as one of our major sponsors at the 2015 championships," said Mike McCloud, CEO of World Food Championships. "This is one of our most thrilling categories, as the variety of burgers from around the world vary so much and the passion to win is so high."

McCloud pointed out that all competitors will be using BUBBA burgers in the "structured round" of the competition, where they will be challenged to create the perfect "backyard burger."

While BUBBA will be featured in numerous ways at the championship, it turns out that BUBBA will be featuring WFC as well.  For the first time, the World Food Championships will be featured in a NASCAR race, as BUBBA burger® adds the WFC logo to its vehicle in the NASCAR Camping World Truck series.

Founded by Walter "Bubba" Eaves, BUBBA burger® is the number one frozen burger in the country and is sold nationwide throughout the United States as well as world-wide through the U.S. Military Commissary system.

"BUBBA burger® is one of those all-American products that came from one man's desire to create the perfect burger – with no fillers, no trimmings – only 100% USDA ground chuck," said Andy Stenson, VP of Marketing from Bubba Burger.

Stenson said that the company believes in strong partnerships that build better communities and that BUBBA burger® brand and products are a perfect fit with WFC.

"BUBBA burger® is a natural choice for quality and convenience, using only the highest quality meat to produce our burgers," Stenson said. "You can take them right from your freezer to your grill or skillet and BUBBA burgers come in many varieties to fit any taste! You can find BUBBA burgers nationwide in your local grocer's freezer."
