Five Guys Burgers and Fries opened March 8 in a 2,500-square-foot store at 313 Houston St. in downtown Fort Worthâ€™s Sundance Square. The restaurant, operated by Monument Restaurants LLC, took over a portion of the space formerly occupied by Billy Minerâ€™s next door to Cabo Grande.
With more than 750 locations in 40 states, Five Guys has opened more than 300 restaurants in less than five years.
â€œThe burger business is a growing industry and we wanted to bring a great burger establishment to Sundance Square,â€ said Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square. â€œPeople will enjoy a great meal and the quick-serve ambiance of Five Guys.â€
This is the second new store to open in Sundance Square this year. Trinity Bicycles opened a 1,500-square-foot store at 343 Throckmorton St. the first week of March.
â€œIt looks like it is going to be another great year for Sundance Square,â€ said Campbell. â€œIn addition to interest on the limited space available today, we have a lot of inquiries for space that will be coming online in 2013 with the addition of the three new buildings we start construction on this year.â€
Sundance Square Management unveiled plans in November for the three buildings, including two that will define a future plaza space and one located on West 3rd Street. Sundance Square will begin construction on two of the buildings immediately after the Main Street Arts Festival concludes April 22.
