We cook everything,” explains Annis Abou El Hassan, manager of Times Square Burger.

A matter of opportunity
Why did you settle in Valenciennes? “A question of opportunity”, sums up Annis Abou El Hassan. The neighbor of Lille, who established his reputation in the capital of Flanders, was very well received by the municipality with his concept. “The city follows the entrepreneurs, everything was super fluid”, he says.
He is proud to bring this project to a sector where he has family, and in a city in full expansion, proposing an offer that was non-existent until then. Later, he envisages opening other restaurants in Hauts-de-France, but he gives time for his brand’s reputation to be forged. Little by little but surely.
