A Five Guys Burgers and Fries restaurant has opened for business in downtown Pensacola.
Established in 1986, Five Guys is a fast casual restaurant chain focused on hamburgers, hot dogs, and french fries. The company has rapidly expanded in recent years, with more than 1,300 locations now open in the United States, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East.
The new Five Guys is located at 440 East Chase Street, in a 2500-square-foot space adjacent to the Newk’s Restaurant at 9th Avenue and Chase. A Verizon store is expected to occupy the development’s remaining storefront in the near future.
The Chase Street location is the chain’s second in the Pensacola area. A Five Guys restaurant opened in the Cordova Commons shopping center at 9th Avenue and Airport Boulevard in 2010. Both Pensacola-area franchises are owned by Loxley, Ala.-based Jubilee Restaurant Group, which owns and operates Five Guys Burgers and Fries stores across Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Alabama.
The new Chase Street location is open from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily.
