After almost two decades, popular burger chain BurgerFuel will finally reach the South Island.

The chain started in Auckland in 1995, and now has more than 30 stores across the North Island, but to date has never opened in the South Island. 

In October, it was announced the first Christchurch store would open somewhere in Riccarton.

Final preparations will take place over the weekend, with the Bush Inn store planned to be open to the public on Monday.

BurgerFuel Worldwide opened two stores over the holiday period, one in Saudi Arabia and the other in the Wellington suburb of Hataitai.

However, a BurgerFuel spokeswoman said the "fush and chups" burger which includes a beer-battered snapper fillet and chunky fries will not be sold in Christchurch.
