The Five Guys restaurant has confirmed their plan to open on Avenue de la Gare in the capital on 20 August.

The exact address will be 55, avenue de la Gare, L-1611 Luxembourg.

The company also stated that it is looking at opening two other restaurants.

Earlier a job posting had been spotted on jobs.lu announcing the opening of Five Guys' first restaurant in Luxembourg in August 2018.

The decision to open a restaurant here follows the opening of outlets in France last year and also a restaurant opened in neighbouring Belgium last January.

The first Five Guys restaurant opened in 1986 in Arlington County, Virginia by Jerry and Janie Murrel and their "five" sons. 

Early in 2003, Five Guys began offering franchise opportunities.

Now, over 30 years after the first restaurant opened, there are nearly 1,450 locations in nine countries. The restaurant plans to open in 20 new countries over the next five years, according to a media fact sheet from the company.

Five Guys facts - according to their own website:

  • fresh ground beef and peanut oil only;
  • as many free toppings as you want;
  • and nothing is frozen.
According to an article published last year on www.deli.com Five Guys is also very picky about its fries: "fries are only made from potatoes in Idaho that are grown north of the 42nd parallel because that area produces denser, higher quality spuds".

We are certainly ready to test the meat, the toppings and the fries when Five Guys opens in Luxembourg!
