Business Savvy Franchisee to Bring Three Units of Organic Burger Concept to Texas
September 18, 2008 // Franchising.com // Arlington, VA,-- Elevation Burger franchisee, Danny Bone, is looking to sign a lease in the Arboretum area of Austin for the first of three locations he will bring to Texas. Bone's brother, Dennis Bone, former co-owner of the Dunkin Donuts franchise in Austin, Texas, will work as General Manager in charge of day to day operations for all locations. Elevation Burger is rapidly expanding its Virginia-based organic burger concept throughout the United States and has 27 units currently in development across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Texas.
Bone plans to open his Arboretum location in May of 2009 followed by a second store he hopes to build near North Cross Mall in the last quarter of '09, with a third location in North Austin to be determined by 2010.
Bone is the President of The BeneTex Group, Inc., a locally renowned employee benefits consulting firm, based in Georgetown, Texas and is excited to bring Elevation Burger to the community of Austin. "The concept itself is a perfect fit with the consumers in the area," says Bone. "People in Austin, like many consumers today, are much more health conscious than they used to be. Elevation offers a healthy and great tasting alternative to the typical burger joint and I think people are really going to love it."
