Burger chain Pattysmiths opens in Pavilions Palm Beach

Burgers, beer and the beach have proven a winning combination for Pattysmiths, which has opened a restaurant at Pavilions Palm Beach.

The gourmet burger chain, which has its origins in Victoria, is moving in to Palm Beach following the success of its first Gold Coast store in Merrimac. 

Pattysmiths has secured a 90sqm tenancy at Pavilions on a 7 year lease with a 5 year option.

Franchisee Michael McNamara says Pattysmiths is a perfect fit for Palm Beach.

“Palm Beach is becoming a foodie hotspot, but there’s a real gap in the market for a truly gourmet burger experience, so we have jumped at the opportunity,” he said.

“We know burger lovers want more than the current mainstream options, so we are taking a different approach by offering fresh, made to order burgers  with quality ingredients, combined with fast and friendly service.

“The name Pattysmiths is reminiscent of a blacksmith or silversmith, who uses their hands to create perfection. Each patty is carefully handcrafted using a premium blend of Wagyu and Angus beef and is always fresh, never frozen. 

“The patty is then hand smashed and grilled with the perfect sear to create a tender, flavourful patty with that dark golden crust then sandwiched between layers of 100 per cent fresh Aussie ingredients and signature sauces. 

“As we always say – behind every great bun, is an even greater patty.”

Mr McNamara says Pattysmiths Palm Beach will offer both a takeaway and dine in experience.

“This store will have booth seating and a large communal table for burger lovers to share the Pattysmiths experience,” he said.

“With the summer weather and beachside location, I also anticipate a lot of people will be stopping in for one of our premium thickshakes, which come in a variety of flavours.

“We’re really excited to be open in time for Christmas and look forward to introducing both locals and visitors to our unique brand of burgers.”

Pavilions Palm Beach is being redeveloped by Consolidated Properties Group, with a major expansion of the centre expected to be complete early in the New Year.

Consolidated Properties Group National Manager for Retail Leasing Rob Clifton says the expansion has breathed new life in to the retail and dining scene at Palm Beach.

“The new space has predominantly been filled by food and beverage operators, with many telling us they have been waiting for years for an opportunity like this to break in to the Palm Beach market,” he said.

“Palm Beach is one of the fastest growing beachside suburbs on the Gold Coast, with new developments bringing in more residents who want to live within easy reach of lots of shopping and dining options. 

“In the New Year we look forward to putting the finishing touches on our renovations, which has more than doubled the size of the centre, and welcoming new retailers in to the final few spaces we have available for lease.”
