TAMPA — The Burger 21 restaurant group signed a multi-unit franchise agreement with a new franchisee to develop three additional restaurants in the Atlanta area. The three restaurants are targeted to open in the Buckhead, Cumberland Mall and North Druid Hills areas.

“We are very excited about this opportunity,” the new Burger 21 franchisee Chris Bastecki says in a press release. “This allows our family to share our favorite burger experience with everyone in the Atlanta area.”

As a seasoned, multi-unit Jimmy John's franchisee with three years of experience, Bastecki decided to join Burger 21 after he and his family dined at the Buford location.

He expects to open the first restaurant in Buckhead in 2015.

Burger 21 opened its first Atlanta-area restaurant in Buford near the Mall of Georgia last year and now has eight other franchised locations in development across Atlanta, making it Burger 21's largest market for development to date. In addition to this latest franchise agreement, Burger 21 has signed agreements with franchisees to develop locations in the Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Kennesaw and Perimeter Mall areas.

“We are extremely pleased with the overall success that Burger 21 has experienced in Atlanta,” said Dan Stone, vice president of franchise development for Front Burner Brands, management company for Burger 21. “Over the past year, we've built a strong customer following in the community and still see great potential for additional growth within the greater Atlanta area including Downtown and Midtown Atlanta.”
