Burger 21's second South Florida location is set to open in Fort Lauderdale.
The Tampa-based restaurant chain, which features burgers made with freshly ground Certified Angus beef, milkshakes, and sundaes, is set to open at the new Federal Marketplace (2949 N. Federal Hwy.) on Monday, April 27.
The 2,700-square-foot Burger 21 seats 94 customers inside, with space for an additional 30 people on the 200-square-foot patio. The restaurant also created over 50 new jobs with its opening.
To celebrate, the restaurant will be giving away free Burger 21 shirts to the first 100 guests.
This marks the second South Florida location for the chain, which also offers burgers in alternative proteins like chicken, turkey, shrimp, and tuna.
The restaurant is owned by Adam Booken, an attorney turned restaurant owner who also owns the first area Burger 21 in Davie (2451 S. University Dr.), which opened last year. Booken is thrilled to open this new location, saying, "We were drawn to the brand because of its high quality food and unique concept and look forward to being part of Burger 21's continued growth. My family and I are also excited to be able to bring new job opportunities to the community."
The restaurant also gives back to the community through its B Charitable initiative, in which it donates 10 percent of its sales to local schools and charities on the 21st of each month.
Burger 21 in Fort Lauderdale will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will offer online ordering for in-store pickup through burger21.com.
