Just over four months after opening his initial location in Linden, burger-joint owner and media personality Maps Maponyane has opened a second location in Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal.
The announcement was made on Thursday, 16 January and it was stated that the shop is located at Palm Boulevard in Gateway.

As it stands, the location is, however, only a pop-up location pending the performance of the store. Maps implored Durban residents and visitors to check out the store in order to ensure that it remains popular enough to become a permanent fixture.
So the cat's out the bag! Yes, after thousands of requests, we've decided to 'pop-up' Buns Out 2.0 in Durban, Umhlanga (Shop 1A Palm Boulevard), for a few weeks, officially from today!!!✨???????? ????

Maponyane put out a survey in December to find out where people would want the next location to be.
With all the interest and support around Buns Out, we've been getting a lot of requests to consider opening a new location. So, there's no better way then to put it out there: Where would you want us to open another one in the future? Let me know with a reply below.#BunsOut ???????? pic.twitter.com/5wkiILljjH

Durban and Pretoria seemed to be the most popular suggestions.
The comments mostly suggest Durban or Pretoria (Hatfield) https://t.co/2mVMcqIjg6
