After all the hullabaloo about In-N-Out Burger making its Oregon premiere in Medford, it’s now Corvallis’ turn to take the spotlight: Burgerville is headed for the land of OSU.
For those already acquainted with Burgerville, we can hear the cheers already, but for the uninitiated, let’s just say it’s the Oregon spin on fast food, with local ingredients, vegetarian options and pretty much the best milkshakes ever, made with fresh Oregon blackberries and strawberries.
The chain includes 40 restaurants in Washington and Oregon, but the closest one to Eugene so far has been in Albany.
Burgerville will officially make its announcement 11 am Friday, Sept. 18, at 2300 N.W. 9th St. in Corvallis. The location was previously a Wendy’s restaurant.
Burgerville’s mobile food truck will be on site to serve up free cheeseburgers, hamburgers, lemonade and cookies while supplies last, according to the restaurant.
Eugene has a few empty Wendy’s restaurants, too. Maybe Burgerville will come to Eugene next?
