Smashburger Franchise Sizzles Into Shreveport July 14, 2010

June 28, 2010 // Franchising.com // Shreveport, La. — Smashburger, a fast-casual "better burger" restaurant will open its first Shreveport location on Wednesday, July 14, 2010. The restaurant will open at 7503 Youree Drive, Suite 500, in Regal Court and is the first of two Shreveport-Bossier area Smashburgers slated to open over the next year. Smashburger will offer juicy burgers made-to-order with 100-percent Certified Angus Beef, savory Smashchicken sandwiches and crisp Smashsalads as well as an array of Smashsides and delicious Häagan Dazs shakes.

Shreveport's Smashburger will feature a regional menu created with regional flavors and tastes in mind. The Shreveport menu includes:

  • Louisiana Smashburger featuring American cheese, applewood smoked bacon, Cajun grilled onions, remoulade sauce, lettuce and tomato on an egg bun
  • Louisiana Smashchicken featuring Crispy or tender, grilled chicken breast with American cheese, applewood smoked bacon, Cajun grilled onions, remoulade sauce, lettuce and tomato on an egg bun
  • Louisiana Smashdog featuring Cajun grilled onions, cheddar cheese and remoulade sauce on a 100-percent Angus beef hot dog
  • Häagen-Daz specialties including Bread Pudding Milkshakes and Malts, Crush Grape, Orange or Strawberry Floats

Known for the cooking method used to create the perfect burger, Smashburgers start at $3.99 with a one-fourth, one-third or half-pound ball of 100-percent Certified Angus Beef fresh—not frozen—smashed on a flat grill to sear in superior juicy flavor. To further the "better burger" experience, Smashburgers are served on a toasted artisan bun and topped with a selection of flavorful cheeses, the freshest produce, and top-quality condiments.

Smashburger is known for its savory burgers, but the restaurant also serves up delicious crispy or grilled Smashchicken sandwiches, Smashdogs, and Smashsalads, with sides like veggie frites and rosemary and garlic–seasoned Smashfries. Burger lovers can pair their meals with beer, wine, Häagen-Dazs shakes, and root-beer or Crush soda floats.

"Shreveport's burger lovers will enjoy our delicious menu," says Smashburger Founder Tom Ryan. "We are excited to bring the first Smashburger to this market and become the community's favorite place for burgers."

"Louisiana's unique local flavors, paired with Smashburger's unique concept, offers something for everyone," says Scott Quigley, Shreveport Sizzle, Inc. partner. "The regional menu is sure to be a smash with Shreveport's burger lovers."
