Luke Mangan to launch burger concept
Luke Mangan is the latest chef to enter the competitive burger sector, with the Chicken Confidential brand expected to launch in January 2017.
The first location is slated for Sydney, however five outlets are expected to open across Australia, as well as further expansion plans across Asia in the next 18 months.
From 7 to 22 December, Mangan – who also operates Hilton’s glass Brasserie – will give the restaurant’s lunch time bar guests the opportunity to taste Chicken Confidential’s chicken burger.
Mangan operates 19 different restaurants across five countries as well as the food offering for Virgin Australia’s Business Class, on P&O cruise ships and on-board Eastern & Oriental Express.
Chicken Confidential’s menu will offer fried chicken in a range of wraps, burgers and salads with the chicken supplied by Inglewood Fresh Organic Free Range Chicken.
Mangan is joined by other leading Australian chefs also operating in the burger sector: Warren Turnbull (Chur Burger), Neil Perry (Burger Project), Shannon Bennett (Benny Burger) and Daniel Wilson (Huxtaburger).
