As we transformed a closed down Quiznos into the first Burger Bandit, we found that the Burger Bandit is not just offering a delicious, unique menu. Its design and construction are like no other.

The new Lynbrook Burger Bandit restaurant is making a name for itself quickly. Beyond its tantalizing menu and a buzz that co-owner and well known Kim Kardashian friend Jonathan Cheban have immediately generated for the restaurant’s flagship location, the restaurant itself is unlike any other burger eatery on Long Island. That is because Cheban’s behind-the-scenes team included talented designers and award- winning commercial contractor Ben’s General Contracting.

“We were tasked with bringing Mr. Cheban’s long-time vision of opening a unique fast-casual family-friendly burger restaurant to life. As we transformed a closed down Quiznos into the first Burger Bandit, we found that the Burger Bandit is not just offering a delicious, unique menu. Patrons of the restaurant will enjoy the experience of eating in the restaurant itself. Its design and construction are like no other,” says Ben Jackson.    

In a recent interview, Ben Jackson and brother Tony Jackson shared some of the Burger Bandit’s notable features. The build out included construction of eye catching architectural and design elements that include an open ceiling design with exposed spiral ductwork, a custom wood suspended ceiling, suspended custom wood beams in the dining area, and stainless steel hardware and soffits.

To create interesting focal points, a custom colored art glass wall border with stainless trim was constructed, as well as a textured wood panel wall with an up lit Burger Bandit logo. Hi-efficiency LED track lighting was installed to illuminate the restaurant’s seating niches and surrounding walls and counters. Simulated wood tile wainscot with stainless steel chair rails in the dining area were also integrated into the restaurant’s construction to create a contrast of both industrial and natural textures.

Following the Lynbrook Burger Bandit’s Grand Opening held on February, 22, 2015, Ben Jackson commented, “We wish everyone at the Burger Bandit success and we will be there for them as they grow their business. I want to extend a special thanks to my staff. They demonstrated an outstanding level of commitment and focus through all phases of planning and construction.”
