American Roadside Breaks Ground in Greenville, SC

American Roadside Burgers has broken ground in Greenville, South Carolina.

To build its newest store, American Roadside demolished an existing service station in downtown Greenville. The building was unsuitable for renovation into a restaurant, and instead the company will build its first new freestanding store on the spot.

“We think this is a great location for our concept,” says Rich LaVecchia, CEO of American Roadside Burgers. “We’re close to Greenville’s Main Street corridor, as well as several residential neighborhoods.”

Flex Casual: The Best of Both Worlds

Consumers today have an abundance of restaurant choices, and to stay competitive, quick-service operators must develop innovative strategies to remain profitable.

Some operators have found that they can attract more customers by operating as flex-casual concepts, offering quick service by day and table service by night.

Austin, Texas–based Pan-Asian eatery Mama Fu’s is one of them. When Randy Murphy, president and CEO, joined the company six years ago, he noticed a drop in sales after lunch and wanted to find a way to close the gap in profits.
