Smashburger Partners With Stl Smash, Llc To Open 12 Smashburger Restaurants In St. Louis

Great-Tasting "Better Burgers" to Heat Up St. Louis in 2011

November 08, 2010 // // (ST. LOUIS) — Smashburger, nationally acclaimed industry-leading "better burger" restaurant, will sizzle into St. Louis in 2011. Smashburger has partnered with STL Smash, LLC to introduce Smashburger's "burger magic" to the city.

The St. Louis Smashburger restaurant will be Missouri's first and will feature regional menu items created especially for St. Louis' unique culinary heritage.

STL Smash, LLC will open multiple units in St. Louis over four years. Dave Schweitzer, President of STL Smash, LLC has more than 16 years of successful franchise restaurant experience with Subway. He has been recognized as Best New Regional Subway Franchisee and is known for his focus on customer service, smooth operations, and focus on superior staffing.

"As a franchisee, you don't have anything if you don't have a fantastic product," says Dave Schweitzer, President of STL Smash, LLC. "When I first tasted a Smashburger, I knew it would be a great company with which to do business."

"Dave Schweitzer puts customer service at the top of his list," says Smashburger Chairman and CEO David Prokupek. "His priorities and experience as a multi-unit operator ensure that Smashburger will have a successful launch in St. Louis."

Smashburger's "better burgers", made with 100-percent Certified Angus Beef, are cooked to order in satisfying recipes and can be customized with an array of artisan buns, flavorful cheeses, the freshest produce, and top-quality condiments. In addition to great-tasting burgers, Smashburger offers crispy and grilled Smashchicken sandwiches and a fresh variety of Smashsalads. Diners can enhance their meal with any of Smashburger's wide offering of signature sides like rosemary and garlic-seasoned Smashfries, Veggie Frites, haystack onions and Fried Pickles. Guests can quench their thirst with local beer, wine, Häagen-Dazs shakes, and root-beer floats.
