SmashBurger Expands into Three Airports

Smashburger, the rapidly expanding better burger restaurant concept based in Colorado, announced the addition of three new franchise partnerships for airport locations in Dallas, TX, Philadelphia, PA and San Jose, Costa Rica. This only accelerates the company's growth in non-traditional locations. In the last several months, SmashBurger opened international locations in Calgary, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Costa Rica.

The airport phase of the expansion includes the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, where Smashburger has partnered with Roz Mallet of PhaseNext Hospitality to open a Smashburger location in Terminal B in early 2014, the Philadelphia International Airport, where Smashburger's partner Irfan Mandani of New York Ice Cream Inc. will open a location in Terminal F this summer, and the Juan Santamaria International Airport where Richard Eisenberg of QSR International, the local SmashBurger partner, will open a new restaurant in the main terminal this spring.
