ATLANTA - September 19, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Bob Stoll, president of Cheeseburger Bobby's, a hamburger staple for Atlantans since 2007, announced that he has signed a real estate letter of intent to open a franchised restaurant in the Columbus Park area, with additional high-traffic sites available in Warner Robins and Athens.
"My brother, Richard, and I have been in the restaurant business for many years, and we wanted to create a franchise concept where people could experience fast-casual dining at its best, and where the freshest ingredients and the most innovative menu were memorable lunch and dinner fare," said Stoll.
Today there are nine Cheeseburger Bobby's - one corporate location and eight franchised restaurants - across the Atlanta metropolitan area. "We've done our market research," said Stoll, "and we believe that for the right individuals franchising our Cheeseburger Bobby's in Columbus, Athens, Warner Robins and other Georgia markets can be a rewarding business opportunity."
"I've spent a lot of time evaluating restaurant locations throughout Georgia," said Kent Lilley, president of Westport Realty Group. "Columbus Park in Columbus is a retail and restaurant hub which makes it ideal for our gourmet hamburger franchise restaurant, so do sites in Athens and Warner Robins."
"The ideal franchise candidate can be a multi-unit restaurant franchise owner or an individual who has a minimum net worth of $500,000 and is looking for an owner-operator business," said Stoll. "Our existing franchise owners are happy; they're making money; and, they'd do it all again."
Cheeseburger Bobby's was founded in 2007 by brothers Bobby and Richard Stoll. There are nine restaurants open in north Georgia - one corporate location and eight franchised stores. Cheeseburger Bobby's is positioned as a fast casual gourmet burger concept focused on serving American nostalgic fare: made to order fresh and as often as possible, with local ingredients. The franchise restaurant chain is known for its "Million Ways to Make a Burger Bar," fresh-cut French fries and indulgent frozen custard desserts.
