Following on from the opening of its first US store in Indianapolis at the end of May, New Zealand burger chain BurgerFuel is looking to expand operations by opening a second store in the same city. The Indianapolis Business Journal has reported that Burger Fuel has taken a site in the downtown Wholesale District. The District is also home to some of Indianapolis’ top attractions, such as the home grounds of the city’s NFL and NBA teams.
“There’s a lot less gourmet food offerings in that central area, and we feel that we could be regarded as being quite innovative, rather than perhaps going straight into Los Angeles or somewhere like that,” said Josef Roberts, BurgerFuel CEO, said at the time. “Indianapolis also has a strong car culture which fits the BurgerFuel brand, but the main reason was geographically it was a good place for us to expand out from.”
The site is set to open by April 2018, according to Steve Delaney of CBRE, who brokered the deal.
