Burger Base looking to open a Reading restaurant

A restaurant chain with branches in London and Manchester could be opening in Berkshire.

Plans have been submitted for the burger venue to be location in Reading town centre.

Maz Foods Ltd has submitted an application to Reading Borough Council to turn the former Ponden Home store in Oxford Road into a restaurant called Burger Base.

The chain , which has the slogan ‘feelin’ good’, currently has three sites in the UK but plans to add eight more locations in 2021. Currently it has two premises in Manchester, Leicester and London.

It plans to add eight more sites in:

  • Reading
  • Slough
  • Cwmbran
  • East London
  • Luton
  • Birmingham
  • Manchester
  • Cardiff

For the Oxford Road, Reading, store Maz Foods Ltd has applied for permission for the proposed siting of extraction equipment and for advertisement consent for the signage.

A supporting letter from planning consultants RR Planning on behalf of Maz Foods says a very high level of odour control will be achieved through the equipment selected.

Another burger restaurant plan was submitted earlier this year on the same road.

Fat Twins, which currently has two sites, has submitted plans to the council to take over 109a Oxford Road , currently home to estate agents Mr Sales and Lettings.

Fat Twins is looking to open the ‘burger bar’ from 7am – 2am, seven days a week.

On the other hand, Burger Base has not stated any opening times in its application.
