About Smashburger Franchising LLC

After over 20 years working in the restaurant industry, for companies such as McDonald's, Long John Silver's, Pizza Hut and Quiznos, Tom Ryan started his own restaurant in 2007: Smashburger. Named for the way its burgers are cooked (by smashing a ball of ground beef onto the grill), Smashburger offers customers a variety of bun and topping choices. Chicken and veggie burgers are also available, as well as hot dogs, salads, sides and shakes.
