Australia-based burger restaurant Burger Head has decided to close its doors in the coming weeks. This choice stems from the worsening financial troubles the establishment is experiencing, with inflation and increased interest rates further contributing to its challenges.
As per a Sky News report, the eatery, established in 2017 by Joshua Deluca and Timothy Rosenstrauss, had expanded to include four restaurants and three food trucks.
Nevertheless, owing to the financial crisis, the restaurant brand had to shutter its establishments in both Blacktown and Casula.
Both the Blacktown and Casula restaurants were launched within a mere ten-week span of each other in the year 2022.
Alongside the two restaurant locations, a production kitchen in Wetherill Park was also inaugurated during that same timeframe.
The brand has currently made the decision to cease operations at its last two remaining stores in Botany and Penrith, with the closure scheduled for October 29, 2023.
The media house quoted Messrs Deluca and Rosenstrauss as saying, “The past seven years have been nothing shy of an incredible journey of ups, downs and everything in between, but unfortunately, we’ve decided to hang up the apron.
“There’s no denying that hospitality is considered one of the hardest industries there is. To survive and thrive for as long as we have, we’ll be forever proud of our accomplishments and eternally grateful for the support of everyone along the journey.”
After the Covid-19 pandemic, the restaurant brand expanded its presence in the region at an accelerated pace, a move that is now identified as the key contributor to the brand’s current financial challenges.
