This comes after many small businesses, especially restaurants, have struggled in urban cores.

This is the plant-based burger joint's third Portland location and eighth location overall in Oregon, Washington, California, New York and Texas, according to the company.

Matt de Gruyter is the CEO and a co-founder of Next Level Burger.

"We're all about serving up burgers for a better world, and we're thrilled to be kicking off our multi-city expansion in an epic Portland neighborhood — Portlanders have been so very good to us," de Gruyter said. "Next up, we're bringing NLB to new regions and cities, offering up the same plant-based burger joint awesomeness our guests expect from us, all while doing good for the people and the planet."

Next Level Burger uses quality, sustainable, non-GMO and organically-sourced ingredients for its vegan burgers, according to the company.

At the new location, the burger joint is featuring a new menu along with old favorite combos, and is looking to hire more team members for the new Portland location.
