Smashburger, a fast-casual chain serving hand-smashed to order burgers, announced today the signing of a multiunit development agreement to further expand its footprint in Utah, bringing five new locations to Salt Lake City.

Leading the brand’s expansion in the market is multiunit franchisee Michael Walker of Zuvachs LLC, who acquired two existing Smashburger locations in Salt Lake City through the deal. The announcement builds on the growth momentum that Smashburger has achieved since the beginning of the year, adding 26 locations to its pipeline.

“We are extremely proud of the growth that has been accomplished since reigniting our franchise development program towards the end of last year. Franchisees across the country have seen first-hand how strongly our elevated better-burger experience resonates in each of the markets we operate in, and see the promise in our brand’s vision,” says Toni Bianco, senior vice president of global operations at Smashburger, in a release.

Smashburger has over 240 locations across 34 states and seven countries. This past year, the brand launched a new restaurant design with some locations offering a full-service bar. Additionally, this March, it unveiled its Virtual Drive-Thru design.
