BurgerFuel Opens Napier Store

BurgerFuel Worldwide Press Release – For immediate release


30 October 2007

BurgerFuel Opens Napier Store

Only a few weeks after opening its second Australian store in King’s Cross, BurgerFuel has opened another new store in Napier.  BurgerFuel on Carlyle Street marks the 24th store for the company, with 22 across the North Island and 2 in Sydney, Australia.

Since listing on the NZAX in August, the company has opened a mix of both company owned and franchised stores.

The local franchisee for Napier is Andrew Coombe. Andrew is formerly a fire chief, who is going from fighting fires to fuelling the flames at BurgerFuel.  The Napier store is in the new complex on Carlyle Street, on the site of the old Shell station.  Andrew and his wife Anne are providing a new fuel stop for the people of Hawke’s Bay with the gourmet burger experience they both became addicted to, whilst working in Auckland.

The opening of the Napier store is seen as strategically important to BurgerFuel says Chris Mason CEO “We want people to enjoy a visit to BurgerFuel – wherever they may be. Our commitment to the provinces is just as important as city locations.  As BurgerFuel increases store numbers, so too does our customer base grow. Eventually everyone should have access to New Zealand’s best gourmet burger”.
