After seven years in Penrith, Burger Head has announced the closure of its Henry Street outlet.
The business will continue with its food trucks but is shutting down its bricks and mortar operations.
October 29 will be the last day of trade in Penrith.
“The past seven years have been nothing shy of an incredible journey of ups, downs, and everything in between but unfortunately, we’ve decided to hang up the apron,” owners Tim and Josh said in a statement.
“There’s no denying that hospitality is considered one of the hardest industries there is. To survive and thrive for as long as we have, we’ll be forever proud of our accomplishments and eternally grateful for the support of everyone along the journey.”
Burger Head arrived in Penrith along with a plethora of burger restaurants – some have survived, others haven’t.
“We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff, customers, suppliers and friends we’ve made along the way who have been on this journey with us and have helped us get to where we are today. It is a terrible shame that it has come to this decision but Burger Head will live on in a different form,” the statement said.
