Burger Urge arrives in Glendale, NSW

The Queensland burger chain announced their first interstate store opening.

Brisbane-born Burger Urge launched its first store outside Queensland, due to open in Glendale, just outside Newcastle in April.

Chris and Katrina Schafferious will be opening the doors to the New South Wales store. The new store located in Glendale is due to open in late April and a new direction for the Burger Urge brand as they evolve from being a Queensland-only based franchise to a national company sporting 20+ stores.

“I recognised this opportunity about three years ago. It's a town of hard working people who like to have a good time and we want to fully support this by bringing a young, energetic, fun brand who delivers great tasting burger every time,” said Chris Schafferious.

Head of Property at Burger Urge, Matt Manzie, said, “Burger Urge are growing into NSW as a part of national growth strategy. It is a logical next step from our Queensland base and will be used as a stepping stone into the Sydney market. Newcastle’s strong and diverse economy and vibrant community attracted us to the area along with our long trading relationship with our franchise operator. Our second NSW store is to be located in Port Macquarie and will be operational in June this year.”
