Smashburger to Open in January

The restaurant wants to hire kitchen workers, front end help and fill management positions.

Scott Gillman says East Brunswick is a great location for a new Smashburger restaurant.

“We’ve always like the area,” said the CEO of Mascot Corporation, owners of all New Jersey Smashburger locations. “We’re always involved with great communities and East Brunswick is a great community, with great kids, great schools and a lot of great families.”

The newest Smashburger will be opening in the Summerhill Square on Route 18 in late-January, making it the 12th of its kind in New Jersey. Gillman says surrounding businesses and the community make it a perfect location.

“There’s a lot of traffic on Route 18, and it draws people from retail businesses looking for lunch, professional offices, and we have the high school right behind it,” he said. 

“We had our eye on East Brunswick for awhile, but it took awhile to get the right location. With the development of the center, they presented us with the right opportunity. It made a lot of sense and we decided to enter the market.”

Gillman said the restaurant will start hiring within the next few weeks. The restaurant will be looking for workers in the kitchen, front of house, shift managers and possibly more management positions.

Smashburger’s burgers are seared and “smashed” while cooking and seasoned with a secret mixture used by the restaurant. Other items on the menu include marinated grilled or crispy chicken sandwiches, grilled and split hot dogs, freshly prepared salads, handspun Häagen-Daz shakes and side dishes.

There are 164 Smashburger restaurants worldwide and plans call for there to be 500 within five years.

If it's like any of the other restaurants in town, they will miss their target opening date by 11 months.
