SquareBurger is now run by Cooperage, backed by Cescaphe Catering.
Since 2009, SquareBurger in Franklin Square has been operated by Stephen Starr. The burger was an instant hit and the Cake Shake with Tastykake Krimpets an instant classic. But for 2016, the tenth year since Franklin Square has been revitalized, Square Burger will have a new operator. Now manning the stand and expanding the hours and offerings is Cooperage, the Cescaphe-backed wine and whiskey bar that resides in the Curtis at 7th and Sansom. Don’t worry, the Cake Shake isn’t going anywhere.
