Burger Projects fourth Sydney outlet opens at Gateway Circular Quay
Owners of the Rockpool Group, Neil Perry, Trish Richards and David Doyle will open their fifth Burger Project – and the fourth in Sydney – at Gateway Circular Quay on Thursday, 8 September.
Similar in look, feel and offering to the other Burger Projects, this outlet has been designed by the Rockpool Group’s architect Grant Cheyne, and has a smart casual feel with a large open kitchen and seating for 120 guests.
In line with Burger Project’s ‘slow food, fast service’ values, the menu will feature 13 different burgers, fries, ice cream desserts, real shakes and thick shakes, house sodas, bespoke Project White and Red Wines, and a small list of hand-selected beers.
“Circular Quay is such an integral part of Sydney with thousands of people passing through every day, whether it's on their way to work, on their way home or to simply take in the surrounds of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Gateway will give people a good reason to stop and enjoy, rather than just pass through," Perry said.
To recruit the team of 20 staff members, Burger Project has partnered with Western Sydney Institute (TAFE) to give young unemployed Australians the opportunity to work at Burger Project and gain a Certificate II in Hospitality in the process.
The Burger Project opened its first venue outside of Sydney earlier this year, on Little Collins St in Melbourne, with further expansions planned for next 12 months. Another Sydney venue, in Parramatta, will open in November this year, while a further six venues are on the cards for Brisbane and Melbourne in 2017.
Burger Project Gateway Circular Quay will open from Monday to Sunday, 11am–9pm, with online ordering also available 11am–9pm. Burger Project will join other venues recently opened at the new Gateway Circular Quay centre, including: Rolld, Mad Mex, The Gozleme Co., Hero Sushi Express, Zumbo and Messina.
