DMK Burger Bar signs 1st franchise deal
Chicago's DMK Burger Bar has signed its first franchise partner, Carolyn Michael, according to a company press release. Michael, who is a multi-unit operator for Freshii, will open multiple locations throughout the city in 2018 and beyond.
"I've been lucky enough to work alongside David Grossman for four years at Freshii, so the minute I heard he was leading DMK Burger Bar's franchise development, I knew I wanted to be their first partner and take on a key role in growing the brand. I already crave their recipes and admire their smart sourcing strategy. I'm eager to open more burger bars, so everyone can experience these premium creations."
Grossman said Michael is driven, hardworking and a natural at handling everything that comes with running a restaurant.
"I've seen Carolyn grow tremendously as an operator and am excited to watch her put everything she has learned the past four years in action with DMK," he said. "We know that Carolyn will play a big part in helping us achieve our goal of opening 400 stores in the next decade."
