A Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries is opening in Oak Ridge.
The new restaurant will be located where Pie Five Pizza used to be at 443 South Illinois Avenue, near the Aldi grocery store and next to Aspen Dental and Fast Pace Urgent Care medical clinic in the Woodland neighborhood in south Oak Ridge.
Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries announced in May that it was coming to Oak Ridge. A business sign was recently installed on the front of the restaurant. A hiring sign is posted on the front window, and the company said it is interviewing potential employees next week.
It wasn’t immediately clear Friday evening when the new restaurant will open.
Kenney Moore opened the first Hwy 55 in a mall in small-town North Carolina in 1991. Today, there are more than 130 of the open-grill diners across eight states and two countries, the company says.
The Hwy 55 corporate office is located in Mount Olive, North Carolina. Learn more on the company’s website.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
