Rockpool Group opens fourth Burger Project

BP_NeilPerryRockpool Group’s Neil Perry, Trish Richards and David Doyle have opened their fourth Burger Project, and the third in Sydney, at Macquarie Centre in North Ryde.

The new outlet, which is designed by Rockpool Group’s architect Grant Cheyne, mirrors the other Burger Projects at World Square and the MLC Centre in Sydney, and St Collins Lane in Melbourne, and with seating for 120.

The outlet’s menu comprises of 13 different burgers, fries, ice cream desserts, real shakes and thick shakes, house sodas and a small, hand-selected list of wines and beers.

Perry said they are excited to take Burger Project out of the city and to the busy Macquarie Centre.

“It will be a great addition to the food offering, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy our range of burgers, made from 36 month grass fed Cape Grim beef, which has no additives, no hormones and it’s cut, minced and rolled into patties by hand daily,” Perry said.

Kristina Carlsson, Macquarie’s centre manager, said the centre’s recent $440 million redevelopment has turned it into a premium retail destination. “And the introduction of another high quality and affordable dining offering from one of Australia’s most renowned chefs will be sure to draw in visitors from our local business park and beyond.”

Burger Project stated it has partnered with Western Sydney Institute (TAFE) to give unemployed students the opportunity to work at Burger Project and gain a Certificate II in Hospitality in the process.

“This partnership initiative is about getting young people into work, training them on the job and giving them the chance to develop their careers. The hospitality industry is desperate for good staff so if we can offer a pathway for those with minimal experience but a passion for hospitality, it is a win-win for us all,” Perry said.

Burger Project is set to expand in the next six months with two confirmed openings in Sydney, at Gateway Centre Circular Quay on September 1 and Parramatta in November; two in Melbourne, Chadstone on September 30 and Melbourne Central early next year; and one in Brisbane, South Bank in February 2017. Another six yet-to-be-announced venues in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane will open in the first half of 2017.
