Meet the owner

Before Omar Barakzay became the owner of Burger Shoppe, he was already a fan of the joint’s fresh, delicious burgers. The original owner, Saeed Mohamed, opened the shop in 2007 and Omar took over in 2012, looking for a change from his work in airport security. Omar was careful about maintaining Burger Shoppe’s well-loved brand and improving its standards. He swapped the existing seating for wooden tables with vintage-inspired chairs and added bar tables by the windows, nearly doubling seating. He also hung framed vintage magazine advertisements on the walls to create a retro-diner feel.

But he placed the greatest emphasis on improving customer service by being present on the front lines of the eatery. “You can make decisions right away — you make sure the customer is happy,” Omar says. “If they say, for example, ‘you gave me less fries,’ then I go, ‘Okay, you can have more fries. Or you can grab a drink on me.’” Being open to and present for customer feedback is part of what helped Omar keep his finances out of the red. “When I started this, I thought I was going to lose money — that I have to accept the loss. So when the first year went by I was shocked that I didn’t lose anything.”

Head east for mouth-watering burgers in Leslieville

Head east for mouth-watering burgers in Leslieville

A burger joint for made-to-order burgers, they offer takeout and online ordering for any of their 13 listed burgers or you can walk in and build your own. The BQM (Burgershoppe Quality Meats) beef is family-farmed in Ontario and free of added growth hormones or antibiotics. Have your choice of patty custom-cooked and piled high with selections from the 20 toppings and five cheeses on the menu. The combinations are almost endless.
