Lucky punters in Riccarton were treated to the first taste of the new BurgerFuel store on Saturday.

The company opened its first store in 1995, but despite having stores across the North Island, the Church Corner store is the first in the South Island.

As part of the pre-opening testing, 100 random passers-by were offered a meal on the house, a tradition BurgerFuel holds for all its store openings.

A BurgerFuel spokeswoman said the Bush Inn store would open at 11am today.

The store currently employs 17 full and part-time staff.
