NEW YORK Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries, the 200-unit, fast-casual burger chain based in Lorton, Va., has inked a deal with Five Points Partners, a New York-based franchisee, to open 30 units across Manhattan over the next eight years.
The first location is expected to open Nov. 2 in midtown on West 55th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues, said Sal Rincione, executive vice president of operations and partner with Five Points. The second location is slated to debut in mid-January on Bleecker Street in lower Manhattan, and the third unit will open next February on LaGuardia Place, also in lower Manhattan.
Rincione said the menu will consist of such core items as burgers, fries, hot dogs, veggie sandwiches and grilled cheese sandwiches. Free toppings include mushrooms, cooked onions, jalapenos, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, mustard and ketchup. Prices range from $5.75 for a regular burger to $7.75 for a bacon cheeseburger.
In addition to its investment in Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Five Points Partners also owns the exclusive development rights for the Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins brands in the central business district of Washington, D.C., Northwest Washington, D.C., and a part of Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties, as well as a network of Dunkin' Donuts shops in Suffolk County, N.Y. The company also is a Subway sandwich shop franchisee in central New York state.
