Smashburger Franchise Introduces Its "Better Burger" to Southern Michigan

Franchise Agreement Brings Popular Fast-Casual Concept to Kalamazoo area

KALAMAZOO, Mich. --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Smashburger, a fast-casual, "better burger" restaurant concept has signed an agreement with Smash Venture, LLC to operate six restaurants in the Kalamazoo, Mich. metro area.

With corporate, franchise and joint venture partnerships, Smashburger can grow quickly and deliver its promise of a "better-burger."

Named for the cooking method used to create the perfect burger, Smashburgers are one-third or half-pound of 100-percent—fresh, not frozen, Certified Angus Beef smashed on a grill to sear in the juicy flavors. To further the "better burger" experience, Smashburgers are served on an artisan bun and topped with real cheeses, fresh produce and top-quality condiments.
