One of the largest malls in northern Virginia, the Springfield Town Center reopened, bigger and better, in October 2014 after a two-year renovation. The mall is located at the famed "Mixing Bowl" interchange of Interstate 95, Interstate 395, and Interstate 495, one of the busiest highway junctions in the U.S. This is a prime location for BGR as it expands its footprint in the Washington D.C. area where its better-burger concept has been voted "Best Burger Restaurant in DC" by Business Insider, "Best Burger Restaurant in DC" by Washingtonian Magazine and "Best Burger Patty" by The Washington Post.
"The Springfield Town Center is an ideal location for the expansion of BGR in the D.C. area and we are especially excited about opening BGR's first food court location, timed to capture the holiday shopping season," stated Nate Ripley, President of BGR the Burger Joint. "The quality of our menu, highlighted by our prime, dry-aged burgers, is well known in the area and we're excited to give our customers another premier location to enjoy the BGR experience."
"Consumers are embracing the better burger concept and we're pleased to be growing the BGR footprint in a region where this brand is already a proven success. As we actively pursue additional DC market locations for next year, we look forward to the continued growth of BGR with a strategy of adding corporate-owned locations when the opportunity arises, and opening locations with our franchise partners in both domestic and international markets," said Mike Pruitt, CEO of Chanticleer Holdings, Inc.
