A new burger restaurant could be coming to Reading town centre, with plans submitted recently to transform a vacant furniture store.

Maz Foods Ltd has submitted an application to Reading Borough Council (RBC) turn the former Ponden Home store at 10-12 Oxford Road into a restaurant called Burger Base.

The chain , which has the slogan ‘feelin’ good’, currently has three sites in the UK but plans to add eight more locations in 2021.

  • Slough
  • Cwmbran
  • East London
  • Luton
  • Birmingham
  • Manchester
  • Cardiff

For the Oxford Road, Reading store Maz Foods Ltd has applied for permission for the proposed siting of extraction equipment and for advertisement consent for the signage.

A supporting letter from planning consultants RR Planning on behalf of Maz Foods says a very high level of odour control will be achieved through the equipment selected.

Another burger restaurant plan was submitted earlier this year on the same road.

Fat Twins, which currently has two sites, has submitted plans to the council to take over 109a Oxford Road, currently home to estate agents Mr Sales and Lettings.
