By David Winzelberg
Elevation Burger, the largest organic burger chain in the country, will soon open its first Long Island restaurant in Plainview.
The Falls Church, Va.-based franchised burger chain is building a 1,750-square-foot store in the Woodbury Plaza shopping center at 437 S. Oyster Bay Road and plans to open on Sept. 1, according to a statement. The Plainview restaurant is the first of three Elevation Burger restaurants planned for Long Island.
Elevation Burger opened its first store in 2005 and now has more than 30 stores in the United States and an additional 16 international locations in Bahrain, Dubai, and Kuwait.
The brainchild of founder Hans Hess, Elevation Burger features organic meat and chicken along with French fries cooked in olive oil.
Stephanie Zulic of Sabre Real Estate Group represented Elevation Burger and Breslin Realty’s Robert Delavale represented the landlord, an affiliate of Breslin Realty Development Corp. and Colin Development, in the Plainview lease negotiations.
