The people of Brisbane have officially embraced Bulimba’s newest burger offering with the venue exceeding all expectations during their first quarter of operation. ‘St Burger’ is the first Queensland location for the new concept devised by Brisbane’s iconic cafe chain, Shingle Inn.
The delicious new burger range from St Burger, served within Shingle Inn Bulimba – the cafe famous for its coffee and cakes – has opened a totally new market for the popular spot. Once closing daily at 4pm, the cafe is now open until 5.30pm daily and until late on Friday and Saturday nights with locals looking to dine on the delectable burger range. Under new management since October last year, the new franchisees, April and Tony Carnie, are proud to be the first Shingle Inn in Queensland to try the new concept and are excited at their success.
“We really feel that the burger concept has helped us reach a wider cross section of the community,” says April. “As a result, more locals have seen how extensive our breakfast menu is, recognised our level of coffee expertise and realised we are more than a cake shop.”
April and Tony were amongst Shingle Inn’s original franchisees when the proudly family-owned company first started franchising around seven years ago. They opened their first Shingle Inn cafe at Mt Ommaney in December 2009 with their business partners Nicki Nesbitt and Wiesiek Lewandowski who continue to operate the Mt Ommaney store for the high-achieving foursome April and Tony, together with Nicki and Wiesiek, have been regular award winners including the FCA (Franchise Council of Australia) Franchisee of the Year in 2014 when Shingle Inn also won ‘Emerging Franchisor of the Year’ as well as Qld Franchisee of the Year in 2013.
The St Burger mascot, Moo-Moo the cow, is taking over social media with locals stopping to snap selfies daily while Shingle Inn celebrates it’s 81st year as Brisbane’s oldest & most loved café.
The St Burger range of hand-crafted artisan burgers, is only available at Shingle Inn Bulimba.
