Burger Project’s first Melbourne outlet opens at St. Collins Lane

12 May 2016. 


Owners of the Rockpool Group Neil Perry AM, Trish Richards and David Doyle have opened their third Burger Project – and the first in Melbourne – at the new St. Collins Lane development.


Similar in look, feel and offering to the two Burger Projects in Sydney – at World Square and the MLC Centre – this outlet has been designed by the Rockpool Group’s leading architect Grant Cheyne, and has a smart casual feel with a large open kitchen and relaxed seating for 120 guests.


The menu is identical and features 13 different burgers, fries, ice cream desserts, real shakes and thick shakes, house sodas and a small, hand-selected list of wines and beers.  Orders can be made via the Burger Project’s website, ideal for people working late or wanting to takeaway on the way home from work.


“We’re excited to be opening our first Burger Project in Melbourne amongst such fashionable company in St. Collins Lane. We’re getting great feedback about our burgers in Sydney and we look forward to delivering the same great quality and service for Melburnians to enjoy,” says Neil.


In creating the Burger Project concept, he added, “We wanted to make the renowned Rockpool Bar & Grill wagyu burger more accessible, for more people to enjoy.  It really is fast food with slow food values; we use 36 month grass fed Cape Grim beef with no additives, no hormones and it’s cut, minced and rolled into patties by hand daily.”


To assemble a great team of young staff members, Burger Project has partnered with Melbourne’s William Angliss College to give unemployed students the opportunity to work at Burger Project and gain a Certificate II in Hospitality in the process.


“This partnership initiative is about getting young people into work, training them on the job and giving them the chance to develop their careers.  The hospitality industry is desperate for good staff so if we can offer a pathway for those with minimal experience but a passion for hospitality, it is a win-win for us all,” says Neil.


Burger Project is set to expand in the next six months with three confirmed openings in Sydney (Macquarie Centre North Ryde on May 29; Gateway Centre Circular Quay on September 1; and Parramatta in November); and one in Melbourne (Chadstone on September 30).  Another six yet-to-be-announced venues in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane will open in the first half of 2017.
