BGR The Burger Joint logoBurger lovers in Reston will soon have another option to help satiate their desires.

BGR The Burger Joint will be coming to RTC West, parent company Chanticleer Holdings announced Tuesday.

There are currently 22 BGR restaurants operating nationwide, with more than half of those in the D.C. and Baltimore areas. Nearby locations include Sterling and Tysons. Another, in the Mosaic District in Merrifield, is listed on the chain’s website as coming soon.

Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant was previously announced as the anchor of RTC West, which is expected to open later this year. Nando’s Peri-Peri and Mezeh Mediterranean Grill are also signed on to be tenants.

The Reston BGR location will be operated by Sci-Reston LLC as part of a franchise agreement that includes the opening up to three additional locations down the line.

“We are thrilled to have Sci-Reston LLC as our franchise partner,” said Ed Kelley, BGR president of franchising, in a press release. “[We] look forward to opening in such a dynamic lifestyle center in the Washington, D.C. market.”

The burger market in Reston already includes Be Right Burger and The Counter in Reston Town Center, as well as Five Guys Burgers and Fries at Plaza America.

    Ah! A great opportunity to dump on the finance industry!

    Remember yogurt places? A few years back, someone convinced the banking industry that the immediate future suddenly had unlimited capacity for frozen yogurt. So all the lenders were falling over themselves to give loans to people to open up various new chains of yogurt joints. Of course many were out of business within 18 months because there were just too dang many of them. Here we go again with burger joints. Overlapping the frozen yogurt mania there was another lemming herd. They are so thoroughly gone now, I can’t even remember what it was. I conclude that cheap money has made financiers into idiots or idiots into financiers. There are genuine investments out there that would actually be good for the economy, but when money is so easy, no one thinks to think.

    If you don’t have to pay for parking, then going here instead of The Counter is a no-brainer.

    You forgot to mention McDonald’s and Burger King, who are also in the burger business.

      Well, loosely.
