It won’t be Brenda’s, but there could be bigger burgers served once again at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Hill Avenue in Fayetteville.

According to a KFSM report, Edward Hurley of Huark Properties has purchased the building formerly home to the longtime Fayetteville eatery, and is considering opening his own burger joint in the space.

Hurley told KFSM that he won’t use the name Brenda’s Bigger Burgers, however, in case the original owners decide to re-open somewhere else.

He does have a name in mind.

“One of my son’s name is Hootie and so ‘Hootie’s Bigger Burger’ I thought could be catchy,” he told the TV station.

Brenda’s Bigger Burger closed last fall after 47-years in business at the location. Owner Brinda Bloyed Legg said at the time that she was retiring, and that her children were no longer interested in operating the business.

Hurley told KFSM he hopes to have a decision on what to do with the space sometime early next year.
