"Our clients are anyone who enjoys a great burger and great coffee," Marlene and Matthew said.
"The great thing about Burgerfiend is that everyone is welcome through our doors. We attract all types of people from all walks of life."
The Burgerfiend team are passionate about small business and said being involved in the awards was a humbling experience.
"To be nominated alongside some of Hunter's best was an honour it itself. We would like to thank Precedent Productions, Newcastle Herald and the sponsors for helping make the awards night happen. Congratulations to each of the finalists and winners from the night.
"It is always a nice feeling to be recognised for hard work.
