Around 20 new jobs are being creating as a Belfast-burger restaurant expands into the city centre, Ulster Business can reveal.

Tribal Burger opened its first location at Botanic Avenue at the end of last year. It’s run by husband and wife team, Paul and Elaine Catterson.

They are now set to open up at the former Bubbacue restaurant site on Callender Street, as part of a £180,000 investment.

“We are delighted to expand our popular Tribal Burger brand to Belfast’s city centre by opening a second Tribal Burger location on Callender Street, Belfast,” Paul Catterson, chef and owner, said.

Elaine Catterson said the “opening of our second restaurant will see an additional 15 to 20 full and part-time jobs introduced to Belfast’s hospitality sector with the anticipated opening of the restaurant scheduled for in mid-November 2018”.

Paul’s background is in restaurants, and he was formerly the head chef at Shu on the Lisburn Road. That then moved to their Burger Republic business in Dublin.

Tribal Burger serves a range of top-end beef burgers, along with sides, craft beer, and milkshakes.

It also serves up vegan options including smoked beetroot, chickpea and houmous.
