Big Smoke Burger to open a flagship location… in Manhattan

Coming soon to the Big Apple (Image: Calgary Reviews)

As Five Guys readies its expansion into downtown Toronto, Big Smoke Burger is getting set to open a Manhattan flagship store by the end of the year, according to a post on Grub Street. This mirror-image expansion sort of makes sense, given that both burger chains have turned to Fransmart, a franchise consulting company, for help. An expansion to Chicago is also on the horizon, bringing the total planned stateside locations of Big Smoke to a staggering 50. The last Toronto chain to move stateside was Rawlicious, which made a move to Soho earlier this year (early reports are cautiously optimistic). [Grub Street]

    They are good for Toronto, but they’re going to get “smoked” by the local joints in NY. There are dozens of better places in NY, where they actually put bacon in your Burger.

    And instantly the Manhattan location becomes the best Big Smoke location, because they can, without fear, cook burgers to medium rare.
