Smashburger to Add Two Twin Cities Restaurants in August 2009

Plymouth and Roseville the Next Locales for Minnesota’s Favorite Burger Place


(TWIN CITIES, MINN.) – Determined to become every city’s favorite burger place, Smashburger® is expanding its metro presence this August with locations in Plymouth and Roseville. The restaurant has had great success with its existing Minnesota restaurants in St. Anthony and Golden Valley. Smashburger is leading the better-burger market with its one hundred percent- fresh never frozen- Angus beef Smashburgers that are smashed and seared on a hot grill.  Burger lovers can look forward to the following additions to the Minnesota Smashburger roster:


Plymouth Smashburger

Opening August 26, 2009

3225 Vicksburg Lane North

Plymouth, MN 55447


Roseville Smashburger

Opening August 19, 2009

2100 North Snelling Avenue, Suite 65A

Roseville, MN 55113


“The response to our first two Minnesota restaurants has been overwhelmingly positive. We’re excited to bring two more locations to the metro area and share our “Twin Cities Smashburger” with burger lovers here,” says Tom Ryan, founder of Smashburger and managing partner and chief concept officer of Consumer Capital Partners (CCP), the investment firm behind Smashburger.


Known for the cooking method used to create the perfect burger, Smashburgers are a one-third or half-pound ball of beef smashed on a flat grill to sear in delicious juicy flavor. To further the “better burger” experience, Smashburgers are served on a toasted artisan bun and topped with a selection of real cheeses, the freshest produce, and top-quality condiments.


Minnesota diners can choose a signature burger such as the Classic Smashburger, the All American Smashburger, the BBQ, Bacon Swiss Smashburger or the “Twin Cities” Smashburger. They also can create their own perfect Smashburger with unique and top-quality toppings like artisan buns, real cheeses, signature sauce and seasoning, garlic sautéed mushrooms, haystack onions or even a fried egg. Smashburger also serves up delicious Smashchicken sandwiches, Smashdogs, and Smashsalads, with sides like veggie frites and rosemary and garlic–seasoned Smashfries. Burger lovers can pair their meals with local beer, wine, HäagenDazs shakes, and root-beer floats.


“We are on our way to becoming Minnesota’s favorite burger place, and we can’t wait to bring better burgers to Plymouth and Roseville,” says Scott Crane, president of Smashburger.
