Five Guys Burgers and Fries will open its Evans restaurant Monday, which will be the third Five Guys location in the Augusta area, franchise owner Rodney Moss said.

The store at 4324 Washing­ton Road in Evans will have 45 employees. Moss and his wife and business partner, Rosemary, are leasing the newly-constructed, 2,800-square-foot restaurant space.

Initially, the Mosses planned to open their first restaurant in Evans, but construction was delayed because of the economy, Moss said.

They plan to open two additional franchise locations in the area. They would like to open the fourth location within the next year in either south Augusta or Grovetown, he said.

The Mosses opened their first Five Guys restaurant in 2008 at 2805 Washington Road in Augusta and their second store in October 2010 at 1909 Whiskey Road in Aiken.

page 2. New cardiologist offices are popping up all over Evans. The reason is still a mystery.

The South Augusta location

The South Augusta location would do much better compared to Grovetown.. I would open one in Grovetown or North Augusta last..

Yay.... more mediocre overpriced hamburgers.. They're ok, just not as great as some people seem to believe- pretty much like Red Robin.

The same few people always

The same few people always have to respond.. They love to mention something about RC daily, but can't stand for you to mention another county.. I think anybody can see after West Augusta, Aiken and Evans are the best markets..

Since neither South Augusta, Grovetown, or North Augusta are considered dining and retail destinations.. I think the daytime population and traffic counts(i.e I-520/Peach Orchard/Windsor Spring corridor) in South Augusta give them an advantage over North Augusta and Grovetown..

Traffic count may say one

Traffic count may say one thing about feasibility in South Augusta, but the fact a burger and drink will run you 8 bucks without any fries says another, no matter how many stats Countyman wants to throw at it.

Well, I suppose a South Augusta restaurant would get some people who are working in the area from out of the county, but the per capita income of Columbia County is dramatically higher than that of Richmond County.

Riverman.. I wouldn't call $29k vs $20k a dramatic difference.. The real question is does Grovetown have a per capita income dramatically higher compared to South Augusta...

Countyman asked, "Riverman.. Is the per captia income of Grovetown dramatically higher than Grovetown??"

I love you, bub, but that one is a little hard to understand. Try again.

Countyman: You said South

Countyman: You said South Augusta was a better fit before Grovetown and North Augusta. Absolutely Grovetown would make more sense for an $8 burger and drink with no sides type of place. North Augusta would actually make more sense than Grovetown even, of the choices you gave. For the very same reasoning that Riverman later gave. $29K vs. $20K makes no difference just like your constant 'low' crime stats don't make any difference in how things actually are or are perceived, even.

Countyman, glad I could help

Countyman, glad I could help you correct that post. I don't know the demographics of South Augusta v. Grovetown and you don't either, but that difference in per capita income between the two counties is dramatic. That's almost 50% more.

B douglass.. I don't even the

B douglass.. I don't even the post Augusta crime stats on here.. I do respond when people bring up my name sometimes.. I think you need to drive around Grovetown again then.. South Augusta has Applebee's, Lowes, etc and Grovetown just got a Walmart. Target, Chick Fil A, Ruby Tuesday, and Dennys are intrested in moving to South Augusta and not Grovetown.. I'm not saying South Augusta is much richer, but the population does help..

Riverman... A $9 difference between the two counties is far from almost 50% higher... I think you might have thought I put $39k instead of $29k..

Plus the overall per capita income can be very diffrent when comparing certain areas.. This is the reason why Costco, Buffalo Wild Wings, Tutti Frutti, Carolina Ale, etc came to West Augusta which isn't located in Columbia County... The first Five Guys & Burger was built in West Augusta too.

Countyman, are you serious?

Countyman, are you serious? $29,000 v. $20,000 per capita income is exactly 45% greater for Columbia County. Understand?

We got spirit yes we do.

We got spirit yes we do. WEST AUG RuleZ.

and now we have a 5 dudes burgers whoopdie

Serious note: I've heard it before and am seeing it first hand. Why do folks in Col County desire to have so many chain restaurants? Is it really that the typical choice is franchise over independent eateries? Or is it more so that it is more attractive to franchises b/c they have the backing to grab up any useful properties and open their chain there, whereas the independent doesn't and thus, it is just glossed over and they say it's the residents who demand chains over Mom/Pops?

$2,416 a month vs. $1,666 a

$2,416 a month vs. $1,666 a month or in language we can all agree on:

302 burgers per month vs 208 burgers per month.

I'll gladly pay you tomorrow for a burger you give me today.

More hamburgers doesn't equal

More hamburgers doesn't equal more *expensive* hamburgers. That's the point. Probably sell a lot of 99 cent McDoubles in South Augusta, but not so much $6-7 Five Guys or $8-9 Red Robin burgers.

Maybe it's just me, but I think most of the nicest places to have dinner around here are in Richmond County, not Columbia County. I admit I haven't tried all the places in the strip malls that line Washington Road, however, so I might have missed some fine dining experiences.

Not knocking the new Five Guys you're so proud of, mind you, just pointing out we do have some nice places.

But the history shows that people that have tried to have lost money because of the crime and the lack of disposable incomes

That is all true bev....but once we get the section 8 housing going to Martinez that will change ....:)

Harley, we live in ColCo but dine in ARC for that very reason. Downtown has several independent restaurants we like.

"Serious note: I've heard it before and am seeing it first hand. Why do folks in Col County desire to have so many chain restaurants?"

I don't know that it is desire so much as it is the ability to pay for the expensive real estate. If you look in ARC at the independents, most are in old buildings downtown or Central AVe that were procured for ledd than new construction in COlCO. I would welcome more local flavor myself.
