Burger 21, a new better burger franchise founded by the owners of The Melting Pot Restaurants Inc. franchise company based in Tampa, Florida, announced that it is accelerating its growth plans for Charlotte, North Carolina.
The brand aims to develop four or more new restaurants throughout the Charlotte metro area, as well as additional units across the state. To support this initiative, Burger 21 will be exhibiting at the Franchise Business Opportunities Expo in Charlotte May 31 and June 1 at the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo. To date, Burger 21 has 12 open locations, including one location in Charlotte's Ballantyne area, and 20 franchised restaurants in development across the country.
"Burger 21 continues to experience incredible success breaking into new markets and we see enormous potential for growth in Charlotte and throughout North Carolina," says Dan Stone, vice president of franchise development for Front Burner Brands, management company for Burger 21. "In addition to having a diverse menu of chef-inspired burger creations and hand-crafted shakes, Burger 21 boasts an average unit volume in excess of $1.75 million and is supported by 30 years of franchising experience as an affiliate of Front Burner Brands. We look forward to discussing business opportunities with local entrepreneurs in person at the Expo."
