The new restaurant, the fourth in the Volunteer State, will open on March 12 and will employ 50 team members.

With the new restaurant located at 2132 N Locust Ave, residents and visitors to Lawrenceburg will experience an inviting dining experience with fresh, never-frozen burgers, premium sliced cheesesteaks piled high on steamed hoagies, and frozen custard made in-house every day. With its open-grill design, the kitchen’s dedication and care when handcrafting meals is front and center.

“We are very excited to open the fourth Hwy 55 in Tennessee and bring good times and great food to the fine folks in Lawrenceburg,”

My relationship with the Retail Strategies team has been extremely valuable over the last couple of years as I’ve searched for sites in the Southeast. They have been persistent and provided any information they could gather for available properties that fit my criteria. If they received news that a space was coming available they made sure to immediately give me a call and connect with the owners. I would recommend using this service to any of my colleagues looking in their client cities.
