Does very American burger chain Five Guys have its sights set on Paris? According to Huffington Post France (translated), the company appears to be in the process of opening a location in the French capital this year. The chain apparently posted a job listing on career site Apec last week for a "passionate restaurant manager" to help launch the chain's "first flagship restaurant in France."
Five Guys has not confirmed the expansion, but its a very plausible scenario: The chain already has multiple locations throughout the UK, so opening in a near by European capital isn't far fetched. Plus, France is currently in the midst of a bit of a burger boom. A study published in 2014 revealed that hamburgers "have become the dish of choice for France." Burgers are reported to be on the menu of nearly three quarters of all restaurants in the country.
If a store does indeed open in France, Parisians can expect a burger of customizable burgers, fries, and possibly even milkshakes with 10 different mix-in options including bacon, coffee, and chocolate. Eater has reached out to Five Guys for more details.
