New burger joint to open in Gloucester thanks to £450k investment

Burger restaurant Burger Boi is investing £450,000 into a new site in Gloucester.

Burger Boi is a national burger chain which aims to bring a taste of California to the UK, and is opening a franchise off Metz Way in Gloucester.

The new restaurant is opening tomorrow (August 5) at Unit 3, Triangle Park, near to Morrisons, Costa Coffee and the Lok 'n' Store self storage facility.

Punchline-Gloucester.com editor Mark Owen popped into store this morning to speak to Burger Boi co-owner Wayne Timbrell and Gloucester franchisee Gerwyn Duggan.

Burger Boi offers customers a range of burger options alongside other fast food favourites, with all meals cooked and prepared on site.

Mr Timbrell, who has been working in the food industry for more than 30 years, said: "The secret to the success of the brand are the people that work here, all hard-working people that have all been taught the Californian way of smashing burgers, that's our secret the people and the quality of our food.

"We have a special technique to making our burgers, we don't form the meat into the normal patty. First, we roll the meat into a ball and then we smash each one into a burger, we then lick the burger with mustard, use a unique seasoning, cook on one side, flip over so the burger caramelising the meat, rather than a traditional burger that is grilled or broiled".

Mr Doggan told us that Burger Boi Gloucester currently employs a team of 22, with plans to expand to 26. 

Open daily from 8am until 10:30pm, its instagram page says they sell "Smashed Burgers, Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Bad Boi Shakes".

Gloucester joins other Burger Boi venues in Coventry, Wolverhampton, Scott Arms and Wylde Green. The brand is hoping to open a further 15 to 20 franchise sites across the UK this year.
