Smashburger Sizzles into Addison in November

Addison is First Dallas-Area Location to Sink its Teeth into Better Burgers

Dallas, Tx.-(October 20, 2009)—Smashburger, a fast-casual, “better burger” concept by Consumer Capital Partners (CCP) will open a Dallas-area store in conjunction with franchise partner, BIGG Capital Holdings.  A fast-growing favorite of burger lovers nationwide, the Smashburger-BIGG Capital Holdings deal will bring 30 Smashburger stores to the Dallas area over the next five years.

Known for the cooking method used to create the perfect burger, Smashburgers start with a one-third or half-pound ball of 100-percent Angus beef-fresh, not frozen-smashed, seared and seasoned on a flat grill. To further the “better burger” experience, Smashburgers are served on butter-toasted artisan buns and topped with a selection of real cheeses, the freshest produce and top-quality condiments.

Smashburger provides something for everyone. Along with its mouthwatering burgers, the restaurant serves delicious Smashchicken sandwiches, Smashdogs, and Smashsalads, with sides like veggie frites and rosemary and garlic-seasoned Smashfries. Diners can also enjoy Häagen-Dazs shakes, beer, wine and root beer floats with their meal.

Dallas diners can look forward to the introduction of a Dallas menu that will cater to the prevailing tastes and local flavors of Dallas cuisine. 

“Dallas diners have long been beef lovers,” says Leonard Davis, BIGG Capital Holding creator. “It is exciting to have the opportunity to bring a solid burger concept built around uncompromising quality to my town. I know that it is just a matter of time before Smashburger has a loyal local following.”

“Dallas residents will love Smashburger’s ‘better burgers’,” says Smashburger Founder Tom Ryan. “Smashburger’s success in other Texas cities allows us to expand confidently into Dallas and further our mission of becoming every city’s favorite burger place.”
