Tampa-based Burger 21 is expanding its presence in the South Florida region with the addition of a second location.
The fast-casual restaurant that features 21 different hand-crafted burgers made from 100-percent certified Angus beef, is opening a location at 2949 N. Federal Highway, just south of Oakland Park Boulevard in the newly-constructed Federal Marketplace. The restaurant, which will also bring 50 new jobs to the neighborhood, is expected to open some time in late 2014.
The first South Florida Burger 21 location opened in Davie in February 2014. Adam Booken of 4B Hospitality Holdings,the company that is developing Burger 21 franchises in the Broward County area, is excited to move forward with the expansion, saying, "we look forward to expanding on the success of our Davie location and bringing the brand's 'beyond the better burger' experience with exceptional service and a diverse menu of 21 chef-inspired burgers to the Fort Lauderdale area."
In addition to a large variety of burgers, the company serves a large assortment of chicken, seafood, and veggie burgers, and offers a gluten-free menu. Burger 21 is also committed to the local communities it serves. On the 21st day of every month, each Burger 21 restaurant donates 10 percent of the day's proceeds to a local charity or school.
