The owners of Hamburger Mary’s in Chicago plan to spend $1 million to convert two office buildings on the western edge of Oak Park into a restaurant and microbrewery.

Twin brothers Ashley and Brandon Wright, owners of the Chicago franchise of the international chain, will operate a restaurant and brewery at 1111-1113 South Blvd., Loretta Daly, Oak Park’s business services manager, tells the Oak Leaves.

The Oak Park Hamburger Mary’s and Oak Park Brewing Co. will seat between 150 and 200 people. An event space might be created on the second floor, said Sara Faust, president of the Oak Park Development Corp.

Hamburger Mary’s could open in Oak Park late this year.
