Betty’s Burgers will open its eighth venue in Westfield Chermside on Thursday, 22 June.
Initially inspired by owner, David Hales’ late grandmother, Betty Anderson, Betty’s Burgers flagship store was built on Hastings Street in Noosa, with a second established quickly after in Surfers Paradise, a third at The Kitchens in Robina, a fourth in Melbourne, a fifth in Toowoomba, a sixth in Pacific Fair, Broadbeach. Their seventh store, and first in Sydney, opened in Darling Harbour on 9 June. A ninth store is also set to launch this year, in Newstead.
Betty’s Burgers patties are hand made using the grain-fed, angus beef selected because of its consistent marbling. Patties are intentionally pressed on the grill to create a thick crust and lock in their natural juices.
Popular menu choices include the Betty’s classic; the crispy chicken burger; and the ‘Bare Betty’, which is wrapped in cos lettuce, providing a bun-less option.
Betty’s house-made frozen custard ice-creams, called concretes, will also be on offer with flavours such as honeycomb, orange biscuit crunch and spiced pecan and banana cream pudding. Diners can also ‘make their own’, selecting from a variety of ingredients.
“We can’t wait to serve our signature burgers and concretes to the Chermside locals. Westfield Chermside is set to be the largest Westfield in Australia and is sure to become a popular hub for families and those in the wider Brisbane area,” said Nik Rollison, director of operations.
With a pastel-coloured design aesthetic that pays homage to the 1950’s, the 180 meters squared restaurant will have 100 seats. Briefed to ‘bring the beach to the city’, Paul Kelly Design has installed handmade floor tiles, custom imported Italian wall tiles, hand-painted shingles, and a one of a kind custard machine in the new store.
