Burger 21 Eyeing Expansion in Charlotte
Burger 21 is yet another fast/casual chain eyeing expansion in Charlotte – four new locations, to be exact. Serving up their take on crafted burgers and shakes, they currently have 12 locations, including one in the Charlotte Ballantyne area and will soon have 20 spanning North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Arizona, New Jersey, New York and Virginia. The menu offers 21 different “chef-inspired” burger options including certified angus beef, chicken, tuna, shrimp, veggie and turkey patties. Though the main focus is, undoubtedly, the burgers and shakes, they also serve chicken tenders, hot dogs, salads and a variety of sundaes.
To help accelerate growth across Charlotte, the company, founded by the members of the Melting Pot Restaurants Inc., held a Franchise Business Opportunities Expo in Charlotte this past weekend at the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo.
Burger 21 earned a number 5 ranking on Fast Casual’s Top 100 “Movers and Shakers” of 2014 as well as the number 1 ranking in the “Top 10 Menu Innovations” for their gluten-free menu. Be sure to check back for an update and see if Burger 21 is coming to your neighborhood!
