Five Guys Coming to Oxford? Not for a Couple of Years

16 Apr

A Facebook page for Five Guys Burgers and Fries notes that an outpost will be opening in Oxford in the future. I’ve been trying to get in touch with the corporate office, but they are slow to respond.

Some thought it was going in where Petit Millets once stood, but I’ve heard that a former employee of Roosters is opening a burger and barbecue joint in that spot.

If anyone has any further info, please comment here or email foodie@eatingoxford.com.

UPDATE 4/20: I heard from someone involved with the Five Guys expansion into Mississippi…

“I am part of the group that has bought the franchise for Five Guys for the state of Mississippi (Hattiesburg to Southaven). We do plan to open a Five Guys in Oxford in the next couple of years. In the next month we will be opening our 2nd store in Flowood, MS and we also have a site picked out for our third store in Clinton, MS. After Clinton, we plan to go to Hattiesburg, Oxford and Starkville. After the college towns, we plan to go to Tupelo, Columbus and Southaven.”

    What’s up with the construction on the corner of Lamar and University? Think Five Guys is going in there?

    I love your blog by the way! 🙂

      Hi,

      The corner of Lamar and University is where the Checkers is slated to be built. Glad you enjoy the blog!

    Is this the first in Mississippi? Five Guys is great, but can become a bad habit. Fresh cut french fries, but order a small and you’ll still have plenty.

      There’s a Five Guys in Ridgeland, MS and one coming soon to Flowood, MS. So, Oxford is not the first.
