Ben Chiu is Ben’s Burgers, Apartment & A Love Supreme. It is Ben’s philosophy of doing less (and doing it well) that has seen him turn three passions into a string of strong brands, each with a solid community around them. Ten years ago—alongside his brother Nick—he launched Apartment, a mens streetwear store that has made it’s mark through sourcing previously unattainable high-quality, global brands.

Being Brisbane’s first home-grown burger with cult-like status, Ben’s Burgers have continued to honour the heavily researched and carefully crafted elements from the original burgers that were first tabled in 2014.

A Love Supreme was founded to bring good people and music together, and with years of forward thinking events under their belts, continues to host some of the most respected tastemakers on the planet. 2015 saw a natural progression toward opening a record store of the same name, sharing the same theme consistent throughout all of Ben’s ventures — quality over quantity, positive progression and community.
