BurgerFuel store No. 59 will be firing up its grills from Monday 9th of May. Celebrating the opening of BurgerFuel Cambridge!
With multiple BurgerFuel stores in the mighty Waikato, Cambridge locals need no longer road trip it to Hamilton or Te Awamutu for their gourmet burger fix and can find our latest store in the new Lake Road development, a retail hub with ample parking and super handy for commuters.
Franchisee and Waikato local, Cameron McLeod and his wife, Kat, have been keen on the location for around 10 years, initially wanting to see the impact of the Cambridge By-pass, part of the Waikato Expressway, which they feel has done only good things for the town. Cam owns Hamilton stores; BurgerFuel Five Cross Roads, Frankton and Rototuna, as well as BurgerFuel Taupo and Te Awamutu, both of which are run by ex-crew members that Cam mentored and developed, subsequently offering them shareholdings into the business.
Cam is renowned for his innate ability to lead a team of young employees. His leadership has fostered loyalty, comradery and an exceptional culture that is held up as a model that other franchisees aspire to attain. So much so, that his staff endearingly refer to the wider team as, ‘The Cam Fam’.
Cam reckons BurgerFuel Cambridge, “has all the ingredients to succeed. It’s a prime central North Island location in a thriving farming community, with complimentary neighbouring businesses in Lakewood. It also has a close proximity to Hamilton where the brand is fully established and means it will get a lot of support from the Hamilton stores.”
Jason Lowery, our BurgerFuel Country Manager, and a Cambridge local himself, adds: “The Cambridge area is an untapped market for gourmet burger outlets. We’re stoked to be able to cater to the needs of local burger lovers, myself included, in the wider Waikato region. Opening store number 59, after a tough two years for the New Zealand economy, is pleasing to see, and watching Cam and his contingent flourish is a real positive for the BurgerFuel brand”
BurgerFuel Cambridge will be open from Monday 9th May, at 36 Lake Street: Mon – Sun 10am – 10pm.
Pop in and let the ‘Cam Fam’ look after you!
