Looking to Add in 2019-2020…….

Crave It Restaurant Group has started construction on its 20th Burger’s Priest location in RioCan REIT’s project at Yonge and Eglinton in midtown Toronto.  The Mississauga-based hospitality company is also preparing to start construction in August on a unit on Wellington Rd. in London and in September on a site in Ottawa. In addition, discussions are underway for at least three more sites and according to Chief Development Officer Sean Black, the company is looking to add more in 2019-2020. At this time there are 17 of the quick casual restaurants in the greater Toronto and surrounding area and two in Edmonton. Introduced in Toronto’s Beaches neighbourhood in 2010, Burger’s Priest is described as a ‘classic American cheeseburger’ concept. The burgers are cooked on a flat top griddle rather than on a charcoal broiler, using a custom blend of premium beef, ground daily on location.  The quick casual restaurants will operate in street front location, freestanding units and open centre sites.  The size is in a 700 to 2000 square foot range.
