The locals behind the cool CakeBoi bakery in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, are opening a high-end burger joint called Spudz in the neighborhood, Commercial Observer has learned.
Bed-Stuy residents Khayri Ayers, called CakeBoi, and Forrest Greene are planning to open “an upscale American burger Joint concept,” at 1460 Fulton Street, Tri State Commercial’s Avi Akiva told CO. He represented the tenant and the landlord, Waterfront Property Management, along with colleague Dov Bleich.
Spudz will occupy 800 square feet on the ground floor of the building between Brooklyn and Kingston Avenues via a 10-year deal signed on Oct. 1, Akiva said. The asking rent was $60 per square foot, or $4,000 a month. The space was vacant and Ayers and Greene plan to move in immediately.
The pair opened CakeBoi, with its cookies shaped like late hip-hop legends Biggie Smalls, Tupac and Eazy–E, last February at 627 Throop Avenue between Decatur and Fulton Streets.
