Theodosiades brothers set to expand WA burger shop to California

·

Greek twins Michael and Andrew Theodosiades have confirmed they will be potentially expanding their Compton Burgers business in Perth, Western Australia to California.

This news follows talks between the twins and Lil Eazy-E, the son of late NWA rapper Eazy-E.

According to Perth Now, the burger restaurant could open as soon as August this year, and would be built on Eazy Street, which was renamed to recognise Eazy-E.

“Me and the twins are working on a possibility of Compton Burgers coming to Compton, California,” Lil Eazy-E said.

“My dream is to have it based around my father’s street, Eazy Street, and help with proceeds to build up the community… and help children through my non-profit Eric Wright Family Foundation.”

The Eric Wright Family Foundation was founded by Lil Eazy-E in honour of his late father and was designed to help support underprivileged youth with scholarships, mentorship programs and community development projects. If given the green light, part of the profits from the Compton eatery will go towards the Foundation.

The Perth business, Compton Burgers was opened in 2019 by the Theodosiades’. They have had a series of high-profile customers visit, including Jack Harlow and hip-hop group Onyx. 

Lil Eazy-E visited the Perth burger restaurant last month while on his Straight Outta Compton tour.

Michael Theodosiades said it would be “pretty surreal” if he and his brother were given the opportunity to open the Compton restaurant.

“We were talking for a while and then he hit me up one day and I said, ‘well, are you interested in franchising?’,” he said.

“We know the industry, but he knows the music… it’s pretty surreal. We said (it would open) in about six months… we’ve got lawyers to make sure everything is legitimate.

“You’ve got to take a risk; you’ve only got one life.”
