Killer Burger Grows its Legacy in Portland with New Location
PDX Burger Concept Signs Lease to Open Location in NE Portland
November 09, 2020 // Franchising.com // PORTLAND - Killer Burger, the famed PDX-based rock ‘n roll burger hangout, announced today it has signed a lease for its ninth corporate location at 325 NE Russell Street.
In the heart of northeast Portland, the 2,600 square foot space has prime access and visibility to Russell Street and the busy Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. It is also the former space of Russell Street BBQ. An early 2021 opening is anticipated for this new location.
“The Portland community has welcomed us with open arms over the past 10 years,” said TJ Southard, founder and CEO of Killer Burger. “So, when we saw that there was an opportunity to keep growing in the Portland metro area it was an easy decision for us. We’re excited to expand our presence in Portland and allow burger lovers in a new part of town to indulge in the perfect burger experience with their friends and family.”
Following its “commit to the burger” operating principle, which embodies everything from burger menu innovation to how the burgers are prepped and eaten, Killer Burger’s menu contains a mix of classic and original tastes. All burgers are served with fries and come topped with bacon and select proprietary sauces. And, with the example of fan favorite Peanut Butter Pickle Bacon Burger, creativity and tradition collide perfectly on the menu.
Originating in Portland, Killer Burger has made its mark with its meticulously crafted and award-winning burgers that redefine the true American diner burger. With 11 existing locations across Oregon and Washington, the brand has its eyes set on expanding its presence in the Pacific Northwestern region and beyond over the next five years through strategic franchising efforts.
