A new Super Duper Burgers location is set to replace a Burger King in April at 1701 Fillmore St., restaurant spokesperson Laura Kwan-Rosenbush said.

Super Duper Burgers plans to begin hiring for the location within a month or two of opening the new restaurant, Kwan-Rosenbush said.

The opening date could potentially be pushed back if there are any delays related to permitting on construction.

Because Super Duper Burgers is a chain, the company needs an exemption—known as a conditional-use authorization—from the city’s ban on “formula retail.” The San Francisco Planning Commission will review the company’s application on Nov. 17.

San Francisco Planning Department spokesperson Anne Yalon said the conditional-use authorization should be completed by the end of this year. Then, Super Duper Burgers would need to get construction permits and pass an inspection by the city Department of Public Health. 

Super Duper Burgers was founded in San Francisco in 2010. There are six locations in San Francisco and 15 Bay Area locations in total. The chain serves burgers, fries, salads, shakes and ice cream.

Burger King did not respond to a request for comment.
