Chanticleer Holdings Inc., owner and operator of multiple restaurant brands internationally and domestically, announced that it will bring BGR: The Burger Joint to the Springfield Town Center in Springfield, Virginia. This summer's opening marks the 21st BGR location.

One of the largest malls in northern Virginia, the Springfield Town Center went through a two-year renovation, reopening in October 2014 bigger and better. The mall is located at the famed "Mixing Bowl" interchange of Interstate 95, Interstate 395, and Interstate 495, one of the busiest highway junctions in the U.S. This is a prime location for BGR as it expands its footprint in the Washington, D.C., area where its better-burger concept has been voted "Best Burger Restaurant in DC" by Business Insider, "Best Burger Restaurant in DC" by Washingtonian Magazine, and "Best Burger Patty" by The Washington Post.

"We are excited about our expansion to the Springfield Town Center this summer as we increase our presence in the D.C. area, bringing our 'Prime, dry-aged burgers grilled over an open flame,' to a wider audience of customers," says BGR president Nate Ripley.

"Nate and his team have a proven concept well-known in their region. We look forward to the continued success of BGR as we focus on adding corporate-owned locations when the opportunity arises, as well as opening locations with our franchise partners in both domestic and international markets," says Mike Pruitt, CEO of Chanticleer Holdings Inc.
