The Israeli chain Burgerim is planning a major expansion that will introduce many more franchises in the Bay Area. According to the San Jose Mercury News, the chain, which started in Tel Aviv but whose global headquarters are now in Encino, will add 76 restaurants to the state, where there are currently 19. The new franchises will be located throughout San Francisco, the East Bay and South Bay, with three of them (in Fremont, Pleasant Hill and Pleasanton) offering halal items.
