Central District News has confirmed that Burger Central will occupy the space at 1101 23rd Avenue, the former home of Collins Gold Exchange. Veronica De Saram, one of the contacts listed on the most recent DPD Permit Application, told us that they are hoping to open by May 1:
The name is Burger Central. We would like to open by May 1st. We are waiting for city inspections and natural gas to come in so it may be May 15Th 2010 . . . We want this to be a very comfortable place for every one in the neighborhood. This is a very busy intersection and we need more places that will accommodate the Multi cultural environment we all enjoy in this neighborhood compared to most other neighborhoods. We also own another business a few blocks away. We have been at that location 15 years and we truly enjoy all our customers. We are hoping that this business will also give us that same fulfillment and pleasure. Thank you very much for the inquiry and I hope to see you at Burger central. Please make sure to introduce your self. We are open to all comments from the neighborhood.
