Burgerim, which opened June 7 in The Trails Shopping Center, is not your typical burger restaurant. That becomes obvious as you enter and see the selection of meats and other choices. Diners can have beef, chicken breast, Spanish beef, wagyu beef, lamb, turkey and more. There’s a choice of styles, such as “cowboy” and “California,” plus fish and vegan options.
“It’s an experience you can’t get anywhere else,” said Doug Warner, who owns the franchise along with his wife, Renae.
The restaurant also offers chicken wings, salads and an option not found at many other burger restaurants, a full-bar.
The size of the burgers, which Warner calls “gourmet,” also makes the dining spot unique. At three ounces, they are larger than a slider and smaller than the typical burger. The customer can order a single-burger, two-burger, or three-burger combo and mix the type of burgers. Warner said sometimes a couple will order a three-burger combo and share.
The public will get a chance to sample the offerings 5-10 p.m., July 21, at a Grand Opening Party complete with entertainment and discounts. For details, find them on Facebook at Burgerim Ormond Beach.
Burgerim started in Israel and the company has opened 163 franchises throughout Europe. There are now 22 in the United States, most in California, and the Ormond Beach store is the only one in Florida. Burgerim is a Hebrew word, meaning “many burgers.”
Warner, who has 30 has years of experience in restaurant management, was looking for a franchise and was attracted by the uniqueness of Burgerim.
The Warners have lived in Ormond-by-the-Sea for three years. Warner grew up in Orlando and said he would come over to this coast to go surfing, so he knows the area well.
“We’re a franchise but we’re local,” he said. “We have friends here and we want to put something out we’re proud of.”
