Smashburger Expands into Jersey Shore with Several Locations

  1. 1. Founded in 2007 in Denver, Smashburger now has more than 200 locations around the United States. Last year, Smashburger opened its first Jersey Shore franchise in Brick. In October 2014, the chain will open a second area restaurant in Neptune on Route 66 near the Asbury Park Circle, followed by a third in Toms River. Smashburger has a contract to open six more franchises, in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, although their exact locations have not yet been disclosed. All nine branches should be operational by 2017.
  2. 2. Neptune Township Business Administrator Vito Gadaleta looks forward to the upcoming Smashburger opening and affirms its viability in the community. Smashburger has become one of the fastest-growing fast-casual restaurants in the nation. From 2012 to 2013, the chain grew its total number of restaurants by 29 percent. During the same period, total sales increased by 32 percent. The restaurant serves a "better burger" made from 100 percent certified Angus beef topped with premium, fresh toppings. The restaurant has also earned accolades for its efforts to team with local microbreweries and offer pairings with its various menu burgers.
