Tribal Burger to open new restaurant in Belfast - creating 20 jobs

By John Mulgrew

Around 20 new jobs are being created as a Belfast burger restaurant expands into the city centre.

Tribal Burger opened its first outlet on Botanic Avenue at the end of last year.

The business is 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," 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 in mid-November".

Mr Catterson's background is in restaurants, and he was formerly the head chef at Shu on the Lisburn Road. He 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.
