BIZNOTE: Five Guys finally talks Westwood Village opening date

(WSB photo, earlier this month)

A full year has now passed since we first told you that the burger chain Five Guys was taking over the ex-Payless spot on the south side of Westwood Village. Today, we have official info for the first time. We pinged the company again (past inquiries had gone unanswered) after WSB reader Rick noticed the website had finally been updated with a page for this location and the declaration that it would open in July. A company spokesperson confirms that, telling WSB, “We are hoping for an end-of-July opening. Hiring is underway. This store will have dine-in, delivery, and large-order program options.” Hours will be 11 am-10 pm, seven days a week.

    The owner of the new burger place going into the old Zippy’s (on 14th. SW behind Bartells) told me they expect to open in July also. I don’t know if I have the name correct, but it’s ‘Burger (something)’ I think ‘Burger Power?’ Maybe WSBlog can look up the permits and applications to see who and what and when. Also, a new Teriyaki place is going into the prior Teriyaki place that abruptly closed last month at 16th. SW & Holden.

    Yeay.  Do we know when fitness 19 or whatever it’s called plans on opening?

    I legitimately forgot that they were moving in. It’s been like a year and a half I think since I first read they had secured that space for business. I’m not the biggest fan of theirs, but new business is good for the local economy. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
