The brand new Royale Brothers burger venture was founded by the boys from The Pantry in Brighton, Daniel Vaughan, Guy Mainwaring and Tim Purton-Smith, a Melbourne icon since 1993.
Royale Brothers sneakily first opened their doors just before Christmas on the 19th December 2013. Any hopes of a gentle soft opening were soon dashed, within days word had spread amongst burger aficionados, “there is a new player in town!”
The word “Brothers” refers to the sense of family central to The Royale Brothers philosophy, their family is what they work so hard for. The group have a large number of long term employees who they treat as their Brothers and Sisters; the name is homage to their wonderful team of people.
