Smashburger is a fast casual burger restaurant with more than 300 corporate and franchise restaurants operating in 32 states and 5 countries. The company was founded in Denver, Colorado in 2007 by Rick Schaden and private equity firm, Consumer Capital Partners. Smashburger offers Certified Angus Beef burgers, chicken sandwiches, salads, sides, and hand-spun shakes.

Smashburger’s menu focuses primarily on burgers, chicken sandwiches, and salads, with a wide variety of toppings and customized options. In mid-2013, they streamlined their menu and eliminated items like hot dogs and crispy (fried) chicken. The restaurant serves localized burgers in each market based on regional flavors.[1] The company also offers a variety of sides, including sweet potato fries, fried onions, fried mild green chilies, fried pickles, and chili. The menu also offers a vegetarian black bean burger and Veggie Frites.[2] Desserts include shakes, malts, and floats made with Häagen-Dazs ice cream.[2]

The chain also serves alcohol, offering beer, wine, and Mike's Hard Lemonade, in addition to assorted malt beverage floats and liqueur-blended shakes.
