A Victoria-based burger chain has joined several local eateries in an off-Island expansion.
Bin 4 Burger Lounge, with locations in downtown Victoria, downtown Langford and along Blanshard Street in Saanich, will open this fall at Granville and West 14th streets in Vancouver’s South Granville district.
Established in 2011 at Yates and Vancouver streets in downtown Victoria’s Harris Green district, Bin 4 expanded with a second location along Goldstream Avenue near Veterans Memorial Parkway in 2013. The third restaurant opened along Blanshard Street in Saanich in 2014.
Owners Sarah and Dan Blackmore and Mike Ringland have also launched a new concept, dubbed Lot 1 Pasta Bar, that features pasta dishes in lieu of burgers. Lot 1 opened last year near Designer Shoe Warehouse along Blanshard Street at Cloverdale Avenue just a stone’s throw from Bin 4’s Saanich location. The Blackmore's currently employ over 250 people as part of their restaurant operations.
Bin 4’s expansion into the Vancouver market follows in the footsteps of local breakfast eatery Jam, which opened a downtown Vancouver location last year. Downtown Victoria’s Foo Asian Street Food landed a spot in Calgary
that same year, and the Victoria Public Market’s Roast Meat and Sandwich Shop is San Diego-bound
. Other local eateries, like the Noodle Box chain of Asian-themed restaurants and Victoria’s former Reef Jamaican restaurant, also got their starts in the local food scene before expanding to off-Island markets. C
