Annie’s Burger Shack has announced the opening date for their new Derby restaurant on Friary Street. The highly anticipated restaurant will welcome diners 1 December at noon.

Owner Anmarie Spaziano said: “We are so excited to be bringing Annie’s Burger Shack to Derby – Derbyshire was the first place I ever visited in England (where I discovered a love of real ale), so it’ll be great to be in the City. We can’t wait to introduce all of the great Derby and Derbyshire people to our New England style authentic, American menu!”

Annie’s Burger Shack believe in inclusivity in the dining experience, which is why all the food can be served vegan, vegetarian or as it comes with meat. Annie’s makes real New England style burgers, and have all their seasonings shipped from America for that authentic American taste!

“We have been overwhelmed by the support we have received from Derby and Derbyshire people – we’re really looking forward to seeing y’all at our Friary Street restaurant when we open!”

Annie’s Burger Shack first opened in Nottingham in 2009. Her story from humble beginnings is inspirational, and it is little wonder that she has amassed numerous awards including Entrepreneur of the Year Women in Business Award and been featured in the Nottinghamshire Food and Drink Awards Best City Centre Experience 2017.

Annie first took over use of a little kitchen in the back of a rock ‘n’ roll pub with just a bum-bag and a frying pan. After people fell in love with her cooked-to-order tasty burgers, Annie moved to a new pub with a larger kitchen, The Navigation Inn on Canal Street. Her burgers gained in such popularity, there was a line out the door and up to a three hour wait for food. It was in January 2014 that the first independent Annie’s Burger Shack & Freehouse on Broadway, Lace Market was born. Now, Annie’s boasts a monthly foot-fall of 14,000.
