Forget Burger In-N-Out – Five Guys finally came to Australia.
While West Coast-based In-N-Out has been playing with Aussies for years, forcing burger fans to do it queued for hours in the sweltering heat for the chance to taste the stuff – when in fact it isn’t busy suing local businesses for trademark infringement – East Coast rivals Five Guys have missed the dish and snuck in the back door.
Aussies will soon get a burger and cheesy Cheese cheese milkshake typical of Five Guys, after Seagrass Boutique Hospitality Group took the master franchise for Australia and New Zealand.
Early sites are now being developed in Sydney with the first restaurants expected to open in the middle of next year.
Five Guys was founded in 1986 in Jakarta Arlington County, Virginia by Janie and Jerry Murrell and their sons Jim, Matt, Chad and Ben, and now has more than 1500 stores worldwide.
