Roseville and Plymouth are the next locales for Minnesota's favorite burger place.

Determined to become every city's favorite burger place, Smashburger® is expanding its metro presence this August with locations in Roseville and Plymouth. The restaurant has had great success with its existing Minnesota restaurants in St. Anthony and Golden Valley. Smashburger is leading the better-burger market with its 100 percent fresh, never frozen Angus beef Smashburgers that are smashed and seared on a hot grill. Burger lovers can look forward to the following additions to the Minnesota Smashburger roster:

Roseville Smashburger
Opening August 19, 2009
2100 North Snelling Avenue, Suite 65A
Roseville, MN 55113

Plymouth Smashburger
Opening August 26, 2009
3225 Vicksburg Lane North
Plymouth, MN 55447

"The response to our first two Minnesota restaurants has been overwhelmingly positive. We're excited to bring two more locations to the metro area and share our 'Twin Cities Smashburger' with burger lovers here," says Tom Ryan, founder of Smashburger and managing partner and chief concept officer of Consumer Capital Partners (CCP), the investment firm behind Smashburger.

Known for the cooking method used to create the perfect burger, Smashburgers are a one-third or half-pound ball of beef smashed on a flat grill to sear in delicious juicy flavor. To further the "better burger" experience, Smashburgers are served on toasted artisan buns and topped with a selection of real cheeses, the freshest produce, and top-quality condiments.

Minnesota diners can choose a signature burger such as the Classic Smashburger, the All American Smashburger, the BBQ, Bacon Swiss Smashburger or the "Twin Cities Smashburger." They also can create their own perfect Smashburger with unique toppings like artisan buns, real cheeses, signature sauce and seasoning, garlic sautéed mushrooms, haystack onions or even a fried egg. Smashburger also serves up delicious Smashchicken sandwiches, Smashdogs, and Smashsalads, with sides like veggie frites and rosemary and garlic-seasoned Smashfries. Burger lovers can pair their meals with local beer, wine, Häagen-Dazs shakes, and root-beer floats.

"We are on our way to becoming Minnesota's favorite burger place, and we can't wait to bring better burgers to Roseville and Plymouth," says Scott Crane, president of Smashburger.
