A SMASHING OPPORTUNITY
FLEXIBLE REAL ESTATE DESIGNS
From the kitchen to the drive-thru, Smashburger has been built for today’s modern guest and digital landscape. The traditional fast casual dining experience isn’t going anywhere, but we’ve elevated it and added more options beyond ordering at the counter. From a full-service bar to app-to-table ordering with QR codes and our virtual drive-thru, Smashburger’s new prototypes create more opportunities in more venues for our guests and our franchisees.
At Smashburger, we’ve taken a regionalized hub-and-spoke approach to our site selection to maximize our operations, marketing efficiency and supply chain. Our experienced real estate team will provide insight and support during the site selection process. We use consumer profiling to identify key demographics, site accessibility, visibility, competition and more when reviewing sites.
