A “WIN” IN VEGAS, A THIRD LOCATION & EXPANSION IN THE GTA
TORONTO – April 10/07….South St. Burger CO., a division of New York Fries, was recently awarded the “Outstanding Merit Restaurant” award at the 2007 NASFM (National Association of Store Fixture Manufacturers) Retail Design Awards in Las Vegas (www.retailfix.com). Accepting the award for South St. was JUMP! Branding & Design (www.howhigh.ca), South St. Burger CO’s design agency.
Today also marks the opening of South St. Burger CO’s third burger restaurant at 3021 Argentia Road in north Mississauga. Located in the Smart!Centres at Winston Churchill and Highway 401, the newest South St. Burger CO. occupies 2250 sq. ft., and seats 40 people.
Plans for South St.’s expansion also continue throughout the GTA, with three new signed leases in big box centres located in Markham, Aurora and Etobicoke. This will bring the total number of South St. Burger CO locations to six by early 2008.
“South St.’s success has been fuelled mostly by word of mouth; customers are demanding better quality food without compromising taste, and every item on our menu was designed to be a ‘Best in Category’ item” said Jay Gould, President of New York Fries and South St. Burger CO. “Encouraged by the success of our Laird & Wicksteed and Dufferin & Steeles locations, we are actively looking for more real estate opportunities to continue to grow this brand. Though our initial development is focused in the GTA, we are ready to evaluate properties in the Golden Horseshoe to support our growth”.
