Three Penrith burger joints have recently closed, as hospitality pressures continue to bite.

Big Daddy’s Burgers on Henry Street and Brothers Burger on Castlereagh Road have recently closed their doors.

It follows the closure of Burger 31, which shared its premises with Broaster Chicken on High Street, earlier this year.

Big Daddy’s opened in 2017 and survived the pandemic but the premises has now been cleared out and is for lease.

Brothers Burger confirmed its closure on Instagram.

“Brothers Burger Australia is permanently closing its doors to the community it has filled,” the post said.

“As we bid farewell, we would like to seize the opportunity to thank you for being part of our journey. We will always look back at the countless grill days we have shared.”

The closure follows the departure of Burger Head’s bricks and mortar outlet last year.

Penrith experienced huge growth in the burger scene around six years ago, with a plethora of outlets opening. Only a few have survived.

There’s been extreme pressure on Penrith’s hospitality scene in recent times, as cost-of-living pressures bite customers.
