S&B’s Burger Joint goes west

A popular restaurant chain is adding another location in the metro, with more sites on the front burner.

S&B’s Burger Joint is opening a restaurant in the Westgate Marketplace, at the former Pizza Inn spot. The space, 6801 SW Third St., measures 3,545 square feet. The Pizza Inn closed about eight weeks ago.

Newmark Grubb Levy Strange Beffort broker Michael Almaraz represented the shopping center in the transaction. J&A Real Estate Development represented S&B’s in finding a site.

Almaraz said he was working with S&B’s several months before Pizza Inn closed. The pizza eatery had a five-year lease, but after Peter Piper Pizza moved into the center, the Pizza Inn operators offered the space.

Almaraz said since S&B’s had such good credit, the shopping center was comfortable with terminating the Pizza Inn lease and then giving a new lease to S&B’s.

S&B’s has eight metro area locations, including restaurants in Mustang and on the Northwest Expressway.

Partner Kevin Burke said the Westgate Marketplace is a different trade area compared to the existing sites on the metro’s west side. The new eatery is close to the OKC Outlets and it will face Interstate 40 West.

“We feel like there’s enough business density and rooftop density that (the area) warrants its own location,” he said. “It’s an uncovered market point for us.”

Burke said there will be at least three more S&B’s in the metro, and maybe up to five additional sites. He said there isn’t a particular area where they’re looking. There can’t be another S&B’s within a 10-minute drive, though.

He said it will take about five months to build out the new place. The restaurant will include S&B’s new menu, which features items like pizza, salads, boneless wings, and quesadillas.

“We expanded our menu so we can offer more food categories for people who love S&B’s, but may not be ready for a burger today,” he said.
