Elevation Burger, known for its tasty organic, grass-fed burgers and patented fresh cut fries cooked in heart-healthy olive oil has successfully launched a nationwide expansion campaign opening 5 restaurants this year including a new restaurant with franchisee Ahmad Mahmoud in the National Harbor development, located just outside of Washington, DC.
Says franchisee Mahmoud, “We were excited to be the only burger chain awarded a site in the prestigious National Harbor development. Where else can you get a $5 organic burger while enjoying a $5 Million dollar view? Our store has been doing fantastic sales that are even above sales at the original Elevation Burger in Falls Church, and the National Harbor development is so far only 20% completed. We can’t wait for the growth that we’ll see in the next year alone.”
The emerging chain has opened a total of five new restaurants so far in 2009, and has sold the franchising rights for 40 additional stores. Additionally, Elevation Burger plans to open 2 new company owned stores in the DC metro area within the next 8 to 12 months.
The innovative Elevation Burger chain is headquartered in Falls Church, VA, home to the concept’s first location. Five new restaurants have opened to rave reviews in Arlington, VA, Austin, TX, National Harbor, MD, Wynnewood, PA, and Baltimore, MD. A new Elevation Burger will open in Montclair, NJ at the end of July, bringing the total store count to 7. Forty new locations are in development across Texas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., New York and Florida. Fransmart, the company that helped launch the ultra successful Five Guys Burgers & Fries chain, is leading the franchise development plans for Elevation Burger.
