Israeli burger chain Burgerim planning big Northern California expansion

The Israeli burger chain Burgerim is planning a major expansion in the Bay Area, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Burgerim first opened outposts in Northern California last year. There are currently locations in San Mateo, Santa Clara, San Jose, Fremont, Pleasanton, El Cerrito, Pleasant Hill, San Pablo, Fairfield and Sacramento. Many more are planned, including in San Francisco, Berkeley, Concord and San Ramon.

The chain is known for their wide variety of sliders, ranging from beef burgers in several styles to Greek lamb burgers to crispy chicken to plant-based options. Full-sized burgers include salmon and falafel. There are also milkshakes. Some locations have a certified halal menu.

The chain began in Tel Aviv in 2008, and it now has locations in 15 states, with plans to have 500 stores in the U.S. by the end of this year. To find out if a Burgerim location is coming to near you, visit: burgerim.com/location
