Canadian-owned franchise South St. Burger celebrates 40th location with opening of first Guelph restaurant

 Guelph, ON (June 12, 2017) – South St. Burger, a fast-casual restaurant that prides itself on offering best in class burgers, is taking a bite out of the Guelph foodie scene with the opening of its first Guelph location at 190 Clair Road East. The new restaurant, South St. Burger’s 40th location in Canada, offers residents of Guelph the chance to choose naturally raised, 100 per cent pure beef burgers.

Owned and operated by brother and sister duo, Kirit and Ursula Kambo, the Guelph location is the latest to join the Canadian-owned franchise, which also has a restaurant in Dubai.

“Guelph is one of Ontario’s most culturally important cities and a very appetizing market that we’ve always been keen to enter. There’s already a flourishing food scene here so we couldn’t be more thrilled to have a local presence and start to build a long relationship with the residents of this great community,” said Jay Gould, President of South St. Burger.

All menus at South St. Burger are designed to be best in class. The restaurants use beef raised without the use of antibiotics or hormones and only serve food which contains no MSG, fillers or preservatives. Guests of South St. Burger will enjoy a fresh, 100 per cent pure beef patty, grilled to perfection when they order. The restaurant is also proud to offer grilled whole chicken breasts, turkey and soy-based veggie burgers.

Burgers can be complemented by fresh-cut fries, poutine, or a garden salad and can be topped with more than 30 traditional and exotic condiment choices including Dijon horseradish, wasabi mayo, mango chutney and many others at no extra charge. An array of cheeses, from Pepper Jack cheese or Monterey Jack with jalapeno are also available. For the complete South St. Burger experience, a hand-scooped milkshake is the perfect treat.

The fast-casual restaurant has a contemporary design, similar to a New York-style loft and can seat over 40 guests, with a seasonal outdoor patio, just in time for summer. The location is open from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., Monday through Sunday. In addition, the restaurant will be offering $1.50 off any True North Combo throughout July to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.

“My sister Ursula and I have been South St. Burger fans for some time so it’s fantastic to be able to bring this awesome brand with its fresh values to Guelph, and be part of a thriving foodie scene where we can serve up the best burgers in the city,” said Kirit Kambo owner of the new South St. Burger Guelph location.

South St. Burger has 40+ locations including Toronto, Mississauga, Barrie, Newmarket, North York, Aurora, Burlington, Ajax, Calgary, Edmonton and Dubai. To learn more about South St. Burger, visit /
