Red Robin Gourmet Burgers Celebrates its 500th New Restaurant Opening
The Gourmet Burger Authority™ Extends Special Offer to Red Robin Royalty™ Members in Honor of the Milestone
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. - July 28, 2014 // PRNewswire // - Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. (Red Robin) is one week away from a milestone grand opening! Red Robin's 500th new restaurant opening will open on Aug. 4 at 11 a.m., in Milpitas, Calif. at the Great Mall of the Bay Area. To celebrate, Red Robin® restaurants nationwide will offer its loyal Red Robin Royalty members $5 off a purchase of $10 or more* on Aug. 5.
"The 500th new restaurant opening is a significant milestone for Red Robin," said Steve Carley, Red Robin's chief executive officer. "Since the brand was founded in 1969, we have grown and expanded throughout the country by creating a unique guest experience through our innovative burgers and extensive bar program."
Red Robin restaurants offer more than two dozen innovative gourmet burgers served with Bottomless Steak Fries® (which means free refills!) and more than 100 different toppings for guests to customize their favorite burger. Some of the most popular burgers are the Royal Red Robin Burger® topped with a fresh fried egg and Red's Tavern Double® with its signature styles, including the Fiery Ghost Style™ that uses the ghost pepper, one of the world's hottest chile peppers. Red Robin introduced the Smoke & Pepper Burger™ nationally in early November 2013, the first of Red Robin's Finest gourmet burger line, and earlier this year expanded with two additional offerings: The D.G.B.™ and the Black & Bleu burger.
While Red Robin has been grilling up gourmet burgers for more than 40 years, the menu also offers a variety of salads, entrees, soups and wraps made with the freshest ingredients, many of which are made in-house.
Red Robin also offers several signature beverages including Red Robin's Freckled Lemonade®, which has been a guest favorite since it was added to the menu more than 20 years ago. The Freckled Lemonade, a refreshing blend of sweet strawberries and tangy Minute Maid® Lemonade, is available for $3.99 and includes free bottomless refills. All Freckled Lemonade sales from Aug. 4 to Aug. 10 at the new restaurant in Milpitas will benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation was created by 4-year-old childhood cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott, who began raising money through her front yard lemonade stand to help doctors on their way to finding cures for all kids with cancer. Alex's mission continues through Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.

About Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $80 million toward fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 450 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
