In May, The Storefront blogger Amanda Codispoti reported that Five Guys Burgers and Fries was going to open a location at Tanglewood Mall. According to a press release sent out today by the mall, the restaurant is still (tentatively) scheduled to open in November in the space that most recently housed Charlie’s American Grill.
“Five Guys Burgers and Fries will be a great addition to the tenant mix at Tanglewood Mall,” said Brad Boothe, the mall’s Marketing Manager, in a press release. “We are very excited to add another well established chain to our restaurant options here at Tanglewood.”
Five Guys currently has locations in Blacksburg and Lynchburg, and is opening one at Spradlin Farms in Christiansburg soon. They’ve been advertising job openings for the Christiansburg location, so they may be getting close.
A location on West Main Street in Salem closed in January 2011. The restaurant that filled the vacancy, Burger Bistro, closed this past spring.
