MEDFORD, Ore. — Southern Oregon's very first Five Guys Burgers & Fries restaurant is scheduled to open its doors to the public on Friday at 11 a.m.
Medford's latest burger joint is located at the new Southside Center development, where a MOD Pizza, Chipotle and Cracker Barrel have likewise sprung up over the spring and summer.
The owners of the Five Guys franchise say that it has been a lengthy process getting the new location up and running. Although they broke ground on the building back in April, they had originally planned to build at a different location entirely — and construction in Medford has not been without its share of bumps and delays.
The franchisees hoped to hire between 50 and 60 workers for their Medford location. With 50 workers hired, they say that they are ready to launch.
