Burgerim, an international fast-casual burger concept, has leased the front anchor space at 115 Pelham Road, Greenville, in the Pelham Court shopping center owned by RealOp Investments.
Construction is underway, and Greenville franchisee Nick Patel says the expected opening is July.
The burger chain founded in Israel in 2011 now has more than 160 locations across the United States and the globe. This will be the first South Carolina location, with four North Carolina and six Georgia locations listed as “coming soon” on the brand’s website.
The customizable burgers come in one size, 2.8 ounces, and are sold as an uno, duo, trio, or 16-count party box. For size comparison, White Castle patties are less than 1 ounce and Five Guys patties are 4 ounces.
Patty options are beef, dry aged beef, wagyu beef, merguez (spicy beef), turkey, lamb, chicken, salmon, veggie, Spanish beef, and falafel. Bun options are Burgerim bun, gluten-free (coming soon), and whole wheat. Toppings are the usual suspects plus sauteed mushrooms, jalapenos, avocado, and fried egg.
In addition to cottage-style round fries and sweet potato fries, the menu includes chicken wings, a variety of salads, and home fries (cubed potatoes tossed in chili sauce and topped with sesame seeds).
On-duty police officers, firefighters, and paramedics receive 50 percent off at Burgerim.
