The American burger restaurant Five Guys is opening in Antwerp on February 5th. Five Guys is the favourite chain of President Barack Obama and choose Antwerp as the place to begin its presence. The goal is to open 40 restaurants across Belgium.
Revellers of the establishment are thrilled as the chain was only available in London and Paris just a short while ago. This move is the start of the company’s expansion within the country as they aim to open 40 restaurants nationwide.
For those unfamiliar, Five Guys is an upmarket “fast casual” restaurant that steps away from traditional fast food by using fresh, unfrozen produce in all their items. The company is famous for selling burgers, hot dogs, shakes and fries and is known for giving customers the opportunity to customise their hamburger – giving you a choice between four different kinds of burgers and decorating it with a possible 20 toppings.
Five guys first came to Europe in 2013 when it opened a restaurant in London. The franchise has seen growing expansion ever since, now having many restaurants across various countries in mainland Europe.
