Seems like the FiDi just can't get enough of Super Duper Burgers. Next week, it'll open its ninth Bay Area location at 346 Kearny St. near Pine, roughly four blocks from another FiDi location on Market near Third streets. The new location, formerly El Faro, officially opens May 27th, but from 6–8am May 26-27, it's giving away free mini breakfast combos (an egg sandwich with cheese, a mini donut and a small Four Barrel coffee) while supplies last.
“I think the demand for Super Duper as a brand is there from what we’ve seen," said Jacob Cross, vice president of marketing for Super Duper Burgers. He noted the company already has two stores in close proximity to the Market Street shop—In the Metreon at 783 Mission St. near Fourth, and at 98 Mission St. near Spear—and "they’re not cannibalizing each other," he said.
The big news with this opening, as the giveaway indicates, is that breakfast is served. They rolled out a soft opening of sorts earlier this year at 721 Market St. and at 98 Mission St., slyly serving egg sandwiches, Four Barrel coffee and donuts, but this marks the launch of new combos and sugar-dusted or sugar-glazed mini-donuts made fresh each morning "using a super-secret recipe and an old-fashioned donut machine," according to press info.
The new breakfast menu will include an egg and cheese breakfast sandwich ($4); house-made donuts (75 cents each; three for $2; 12 for $8; two dozen for $15); a mini breakfast combo with an egg sandwich with cheese, one mini donut and small Four Barrel coffee ($5); and a super combo that includes an egg sandwich with cheese and bacon or sausage, three mini donuts and a large Four Barrel coffee ($7).
Regular hours will 6am–10pm Monday-Friday and 11am-–8pm Saturday, with breakfast served from 6–10:30pm weekdays and lunch starting at 10:30am. All Super Duper locations put out signs during rush times telling you how many minutes you are from the front of the line, in case you have to watch the clock during lunch. As with all other locations, the Kearny store will serve beer and wine.
Super Duper Burgers is owned by Adriano Paganini and Edmondo Sarti, who also own Unos Dos Tacos at 595 Market St. The burger purveyor is known for its investment in natural and local ingredients, sustainable packaging and building materials, and a modern aesthetic with vintage shout-outs, all of which attract a crowd that would never set foot in a traditional fast food outlet.
