Burger chain expanding to Gilroy
BurgerIM, an international gourmet burger chain, is making its way to Gilroy.
The restaurant is moving into the Gilroy Premium Outlets at 681 Leavesley Road, Unit A011B. It has applied for a Type 47 license with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, that would allow it to sell beer and wine on site.
The listed owner for the Gilroy location is San Jose-based More Burgers Inc., with David Rigoberto Artola as the president.
BurgerIM, which allows hungry customers to choose their own patty, bun and toppings, bills itself as the “fastest-growing burger franchise,” with nearly 500 stores expected to be operating in the United States by the end of the year. Roughly 150 BurgerIMs are either open in California or coming soon.
An opening date for the Gilroy location is unknown, as BurgerIM officials did not respond to an inquiry as of press time.
