Burgerim, a rapidly-growing worldwide mini-burger chain is betting on San Diego’s big hunger for burgers. The Israeli-based company, founded in 2011, has ambitious plans to flood the U.S. market with hundreds of franchises, including several locations that are planned for the San Diego area. Its customizable model offers a mix-and-match menu that offers diners their choice of bun and 2.8 ounce patty (ranging from dry aged beef to turkey or salmon), plus an array of toppings and sauces; the sliders are available as orders of one, two, three or a party-sized box of 16.
A rep for Burgerim says that a location on Prospect Street in La Jolla is about eight weeks out. An outpost previously announced for a vacant food pavilion in downtown’s Horton Plaza Park is reportedly also opening this fall and another is in the works at Westfield Mission Valley.
