Smashburger is an American fast-casual burger restaurant chain with more than 370 corporate and franchise outlets operating in 37 states and 9 countries. The company was founded in Denver, Colorado in 2007 by Tom Ryan, Rick Schaden, and private equity firm Consumer Capital Partners. Smashburger offers burgers, chicken sandwiches, salads, sides, and shakes. The restaurant is named for the technique of smashing a ball of ground beef on a grill to "sear in the juices."
Smashburger's menu focuses primarily on burgers, chicken sandwiches, and salads, with a variety of toppings and options. The restaurant serves localized burgers in each market based on regional flavors like the Sin City, Windy City, Spicy Cowboy, and others. The company also offers a variety of sides, including sweet potato fries, fried onions, and fried pickles, as well as a vegetarian black bean burger and Veggie Frites. Desserts include shakes and malts made with Häagen-Dazs ice cream.
In October 2015, the Philippine-based quick-service operator Jollibee Foods Corporation announced that it had acquired a 40-percent stake in Smashburger in a deal that valued the burger chain at $335 million.
