BURGER 21 TO OPEN NEW RESTAURANTS IN FLORIDA AND GEORGIA THIS YEAR
Burger 21 has signed an additional franchise agreement with its very first franchisee, Dennis Saller, to develop the brand’s first restaurant in Melbourne, Fla., at The Avenue Viera shopping mall. The Tampa-based chain has also signed lease agreements for its Snellville and Johns Creek, Ga., locations.
“We are excited about the growth Burger 21 has experienced in both Florida and Georgia, and we are optimistic about our future development throughout the Southeast,” said Mark Johnston, the founder and president of Burger 21. “Dennis Saller’s Orlando location has already proven to be highly successful, and we’re confident that he’ll bring the same success to Melbourne. Georgia also continues to be a prime target for our brand’s development as we aim to open additional franchise locations across the state, in cities such as Cumberland and Kennesaw.”
The Melbourne location will be Saller’s second Burger 21 restaurant in the state of Florida. He opened his first one in 2013 in Orlando. On the Georgia front, existing franchisee, Corley Steward, signed a lease agreement for his second Burger 21 location in Johns Creek, located at 11250 Medlock Bridge.
Additionally, Alex Kim signed a lease agreement for his first Burger 21 restaurant in Snellville, located at 1575 Scenic Highway, Suite 400. Both restaurants are slated to open this summer.
To date, Burger 21 has opened 15 locations and it has more than 20 franchised restaurants in development across the country.
