Salford takeaway favourite Burgerism is opening a new site in Stockport, and we’re absolutely thrilled about it.

Bosses have revealed they will be bringing their stacked burgers, wings and sides to Gatley as they plan to open a new site in the town later this year.

Offering delivery and collection, fans of their award-winning food will be able to get their hands on favourites like the FreeBird burger, comprised of deep fried chicken breast on a potato bun with spicy oil, ‘comeback sauce’, fresh slaw and pickles.

Elsewhere, you’ll the Veggied burger – made with 2 non-meat patties and cheese – alongside the likes of BBQ wings, buffalo wings and skin on fries.

First founded in 2018, Burgerism has been quietly setting the standard for dark kitchens way before the pandemic made them so popular.

For years, it has been delivery only – drawing regular queues outside its Salford site and churning out thousands of its popular smashed patty burgers a day.

It also now has a dine-in site at Escape To Freight Island in Manchester city centre, but Gatley residents will be treated to the authentic takeaway experience with the full menu available to takeaway only.


Speaking on the new opening, owner Mark Murphy said that the ultimate goal for the brand was to become ‘like Domin’s’ is to pizza, and be the UK’s go-to delivery burger joint.

He told Manchester’s Finest: “We’re building the future of takeaway. Our goal is to become the go-to delivery burger across the UK, almost like Domino’s is to pizza”. 


“We’re super excited to launch in the Stockport/Cheadle area! Right from day one, we’ve had lots of die hard Burgerism fans make the pilgrimage across from Stockport to Salford and, while we’ve admired their commitment, we felt it was time to bring Burgerism closer to more of the fans!

“From our store in Gatley, we’ll offer delivery and collection, with delivery available right across Didsbury, Heaton Moor, Stockport, Wythenshawe, and Cheadle Hulme. Our collection system will work similar to Salford – with customers ordering ahead for a set pick-up slot. We’ve got some exciting plans for launch week and we’re hoping to say hi to lots of Burgerism fans (old and new)!”
