Trailblazing- Smashburger is setting the standard among fast casual restaurants. Maybe we’ve let all the smashing go to our heads, but we like to stay on top of the trends by offering an extensive menu with a local edge that includes regionalized burgers, sides and shakes, alongside hometown craft beer options. This trailblazing mentality has allowed us to grow to 310 stores with a projected 20-25% growth every year for the next few years. This positions us as the second largest “better burger” fast casual brand in terms of open stores and one of the fastest growing “better burger brands”. Even with Hundreds of stores, we still have exceptional territory available in over 60% of the top markets. We believe room to grown and the drive to support franchisees adds up to an incredible business opportunity in amazing locations across the U.S. and Abroad.
