Toronto, Canada - Big Smoke Burger, the Toronto-based gourmet burger chain, opened this summer on 7th Ave in New York City, expanding on its existing U.S. franchise presence.
Marking the brand's 2nd location in the U.S. – Big Smoke Burger opened in Denver, CO in 2013 – and 13th location worldwide, Big Smoke Burger is expanding across Canada, the U.S. and the Middle East through a combination of company and franchise owned stores.
Big Smoke Burger is a dominant better burger chain in Canada, owned by restaurant veteran Mustafa Yusuf, whose menu offers always fresh, never frozen open-flame grilled beef, hand-cut fresh fries, traditional Canadian poutine, and healthy protein alternatives like veggie, chicken and lamb burgers, as well as unique signature sauces to give every burger distinctive flavor that you can't get elsewhere.
The arrival of Big Smoke Burger has already created some local NYC buzz with headlines stating, "Big Smoke Burger Brings Poutine, Canadian Style Burgers To NYC" – The Village Voice and "International Patty Chain Big Smoke Burger Debuts In Chelsea" – TimeOut New York.
Big Smoke Burger is franchising with the help of partner Fransmart, the franchise development company behind the explosive growth of brands like Five Guys Burgers and Fries and Qdoba Mexican Grill.
Big Smoke Burger presents a refined approach to fast casual dining, offering gourmet handcrafted burgers made fresh daily using only the freshest, never frozen beef, as well as other unique protein options like chicken and lamb burgers. The brand sets itself apart in the crowded burger segment by offering traditional Canadian poutine on the menu, and signature, homemade sauces paired with the practice of flame broiling that gives the burgers a delicious, unique flavor.
Founded in 2007 by Mustafa Yusuf, a restaurant industry vet whose experience includes deep management experience with The Keg Steakhouse & Bar, Big Smoke Burger currently has multiple units open across Canada, the U.S. and the Middle East, and is planning aggressive expansion throughout North America and select international markets. The concept was recruited by both HMS Host and Cadillac Fairview, two prestigious names in the retail services industry, for a travel plaza location on one of Ontario's busiest highways as well as a prime spot in one of Canada's largest malls.
