The 11th New Jersey Smashburger franchise officially opens in the Troy Hills Shopping Center in Parsippany Thursday, but residents had an opportunity Monday afternoon and evening for an early taste of what the chain restaurant has to offer.
There was excitement in the dining room as patrons who had received e-mailed invitations to attend lined up to try out Smashburger’s burgers, chicken sandwiches and fries.
Server Mike Calderone said he was feeling the excitement too.
“I love this,” he exclaimed. “The spirit is great!”
He said the spirit carries over to his feelings for working for Smashburger.
