Five Guys to open Birmingham site

Five Guys to open Birmingham site

American burger brand Five Guys is to open a new site at the Bullring centre in Birmingham this summer.

The new location will be the sixth for the brand, which opened its first UK site in London last summer. It was brought to the country following a joint venture between the American parent company and Carphone Warehouse founder Charles Dunstone.

The Birmingham restaurant will be Five Guys' first in the West Midlands, and will sit on the middle level of the Bullring, overlooking the central atrium.

Five Guys started out in the US as a small family business in 1986 and has grown to more than 1,000 restaurants across America and Canada, and with 1,500 new sites planned worldwide.

John Eckbert, director of Five Guys UK, said: "We are thrilled to be a part of Bullring and the other great eateries in the centre. We are looking forward to building a great relationship with West Midlands patrons."

Chris Daly, leasing executive at Hammerson, which developed and operates the Bullring, said: "Following its phenomenal success at the Oracle, we're delighted to bring Five Guys to the West Midlands. It is testament to Bullring's dominant position in the area and its existing strong dining offer that we have secured such a high-profile brand in the early stages of its UK expansion."
