What’s Your Beef is moving into a new home in MediaCityUK this week, and will be giving away free burgers especially for the occasion.

The local Rochdale-born burger brand – which is known for ethically sourcing its beef from a local award-winning butcher and priding itself on making the best burgers in the land – is moving into the MediaCityUK branch of independent retailer General Store this Friday, and is throwing a burger and beer bash alongside Manchester Union Lager to celebrate.

What’s Your Beef will be giving away 100 free burgers this Friday between 3pm-7pm – including fan-favourites the ‘Stateside Deluxe’ and the ‘Got No Beef’ vegan burger. 

There’ll also be music from a DJ, and free beer to wash it down with too.

What’s Your Beef joined MediaCity General Store – which is located in the ground floor of the recently-completed Lightbox development, and is just a stone’s throw from the cobbles of the Coronation Street set – when it first opened in May.


The two local independent brands have been working together to bring brilliant burgers to Salford Quays ever since.

“We love everything that What’s Your Beef stand for,” admitted Jasmine Brannan – Manager Store Retail Group


“A local, quality, independent brand with a massive passion for what they do, so we were excited to create a more permanent residency for Neil and his team at General Store MediaCity and to be able to keep bringing those brilliant burgers to the community.”

Neil Standring from What’s Your Beef added: “We’ve loved our time at MediaCity so far.

“It’s been fantastic to be on the journey as the site opened – we love working together, and getting the chance to bring our burgers to even more people.”


General Stores is dedicated to “championing exciting and innovative food and drink.”

They retailer – which has a number of branches throughout Manchester – is known for stocking big brand convenience products right through to artisan local producers, alongside a coffee shop on site, plus an alcohol emporium with tasting area, local fresh baked goods and zero-waste, household essential refill stations. 

The What’s Your Beef residency is just one of a number of collaborations in the MediaCity General Store.
