Smashburger Closes Three Las Vegas Locations

The popular burger chain is not immune to the economic downturn

In a surprise move, fast-casual chain Smashburger, once one of the most enthusiastic and confident burger restaurants spread across Las Vegas, closed three of its local outposts.

Originally co-created by Tom Ryan, the eponymous namesake behind Tom’s Urban at the New York-New York, Jollibee Foods Corp. has owned the company outright since 2018.

With five locations still in operation, the counter-service restaurants at 4725 S. Maryland Parkway near UNLV, 9101 W. Sahara Avenue on the westside, and the drive-thru equipped location at 7390 Las Vegas Boulevard S. close to Las Vegas South Premium Outlets are now all shut.

First arriving in Las Vegas in 2010 and ominously proving high profile, national brands are not immune to economic uncertainty, the parent company has not announced the closures.

The home of haystack onions and smashed and seasoned burgers, Ryan had envisioned a local portfolio of “15 to 20” Smashburgers, eventually expanding to the Strip in 2014, inside the Caesars Palace Forum Food Court.

No replacements for the three empty spaces have been revealed.
