Smashburger has announced its May 2 opening in Calgary, Alberta, followed by a second location there slated to open in June.
Smashburger will offer gourmet burgers along with MacKay’s milkshakes, a variety of sides and regional menu items crafted specifically for the Calgary market.
Each Calgary Smashburger location will feature a regional Alberta-inspired menu to showcase local suppliers and flavors. The regional menu will feature the Calgary Smashburger and Calgary chicken sandwich, each topped with an exclusive Canadian-inspired seasoning, grilled onions, pepper jack cheese, applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato and Dijon-mayonnaise on a Kaiser roll. In true Canadian fashion, the menu also will offer traditional poutine Smashfries, Mushroom poutine Smashfries with garlic sautéed mushrooms and a Saskatoon Berry milkshake using Cochrane’s MacKay’s ice cream.
