Burger 21Â®, a new fast casual concept founded by the owners of The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc., announced today that it has signed a two-unit franchise deal in Atlanta, Ga., as it targets Atlanta as a growth market and opens additional territories for development in the area.
Corley and Meg Steward have signed an agreement to open two Burger 21 locations in the North Alpharetta and Buford/Mall of Georgia areas. This deal comes on the heels of two signed deals for a total of three franchised units in Orlando, Fla., inked earlier this year.
“We are thrilled to have signed our first franchise deal in Atlanta just in time for our brand’s latest growth initiative in the region,” said Mark Johnston, Burger 21 president and chief concept officer and president of Front Burner Brands, management company for Burger 21. “With consumer demand for fast casual experiences on the rise, we are confident that Burger 21 will be a perfect match for Atlanta residents and impress them with an extensive menu that includes 10 beef and 10 non-beef burger options, as well as a variety of salads, hot dogs, fries, shakes and more.”
