Smashburger is about to open their 4th Charlotte-area location in Fort Mill’s new Kingsley Town Center. To celebrate the restaurant’s newest location, they’ll be hosting special events in the days leading up to the Thursday, Dec. 7 grand opening. This includes three “Pay What You Want” events followed by a day where all guests will receive one free regular Classic Smashburger and 100 guests will win free Regular Classic Smashburgers for a year.
“We’re excited to be opening our fourth location in the Charlotte metro area,” said Steve Taylor, local Smashburger co-owner and 2012 recipient of Charlotte Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” award. “Kingsley is a promising location that is up-and-coming and we look forward to sharing delicious, smashed-to-order burgers with local residents. It’s going to be a great week of celebrating and we hope to see a lot of people come by to join the fun.”
The “Pay What You Want” events kick off Monday, Dec. 4 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Guests can pay as little as $1 for an entrée with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids, an organization that provides terminally ill and chronically disabled children a magical week-long, all-expenses-paid vacation to Disney World. Then, later that evening from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., the “Pay What You Want” proceeds will go to local Orchard Park Elementary School.
The final “Pay What You Want” event is Tuesday, Dec. 5 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. benefitting Children’s Attention Home, an organization focused on providing a safe and nurturing home for abused and neglected children from birth to 21 years of age.
On Wednesday, Dec. 6, the first 100 customers in line at the Kingsley grand opening will win free regular Classic Smashburgers for a year. Even after the first 100 guests have arrived, all guests that day will receive one free regular Classic Smashburger (per customer) between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Smashburger will officially open with regular prices and hours Thursday, Dec. 7. The store is located at 1329 Broadcloth Street in Fort Mill.
