DURHAM, IT’S TIME TO RETHINK YOUR BURGER!

Mar 5, 2010

SOUTH ST. BURGER Co. IS COOKING UP NATURALLY RAISED, 100% PURE BEEF BURGERS IN AJAX.

March 5, 2010…. Durham residents can now take a bite out of a tasty, fresh South St. Burger!  South St. Burger Co., a premium burger restaurant owned and operated by New York Fries, opened its 12th location today; its first Ajax burger location at 269 Kingston Rd. East in the Whitetail Centre, just east of Salem.

“We are very excited to be opening our first restaurant east of Toronto in Ajax” comments Jay Gould, president of South St. Burger Co. and New York Fries. “A number of our customers in Ajax have patiently commuted to our other locations as we built this restaurant. We look forward to a long relationship with the communities of Durham!”

All items on South St. Burger Co.’s menu are designed to be “best in class.” The menu features: 1/3 lb burgers that are made from fresh patties with no additives, hormones or antibiotics. Grilled whole chicken breasts and soy based veggie burgers are also available.  Sides include fresh-cut New York Fries, poutine, onion rings, a garden salad and hand-scooped ice cream milkshakes. The onion rings, like the fries, are fresh-cut and cooked in trans fat free sunflower oil.

At South St. Burger Co., customers can top off their beef burger with more than 25 traditional and exotic condiment choices, including Dijon horseradish, wasabi mayo, mango chutney, guacamole and others at no extra charge.  A selection of four real cheeses, including cheddar, Swiss, goat and Monterey Jack with jalapeno, are also on the menu.

The quick service restaurant designed by Jump Branding and Design, feels like a contemporary, New York-style loft and occupies 2,200 sq. feet.

South St. Burger Co. is open from 11:00 am – 9:00 pm, Sunday – Wednesday and 11:00 am – 10:00 pm Thursday – Saturday, with free on-site parking.  The company’s other locations include Markham, Barrie, North York, Mississauga, Newmarket, Etobicoke, Aurora, Burlington, Calgary and two in Toronto.  South St. Burger Co. continues to seek appropriate real estate for continued development in Ontario and Alberta markets.
