Five Guys, a fast casual restaurant chain focused on hamburgers, hot dogs and fries, is building a location in Ardmore, and anticipates opening in December, according to Ardmore Development Services.
The restaurant was issued a building permit by ADS Sept. 14, and construction is underway in a two-tenant shell located in Ardmore Commons shopping mall.
ADS director Jessica Scott said she expects Five Guys to draw considerable traffic to Ardmore, being a popular fast food chain already established with nearly 1,000 locations across the nation.
Scott hasn’t been informed by Encore Enterprises, the company that owns the shell, what the neighboring tenant will be. But she said ADS is confident growth in Ardmore Commons will continue to flourish if the popular burger joint is any indication.
“We know that Five Guys is going to be huge,” Scott said. “We’re excited to see what’s next.”
