After filing plans to open its first restaurants outside of California in three North Texas cities, Nation’s Giant Hamburgers is expected to start construction of another in the Dallas area.

The project is a 2,522-square-foot finish-out of a shell building at The Station in Sachse, according to a Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation document. At an estimated construction cost of $350,000, it includes a delivery date of November 20.

In August, Nation’s announced it would begin to open locations in “new markets” in 2024, The Dallas Express reported. So far, the burger franchise has filed plans for restaurants in Denton, Frisco, and Arlington at construction costs totaling nearly $2 million. The latter two stores are scheduled to open by June, and the former is expected to do so in November.

Nation’s advertises franchise opportunities in Texas, Oklahoma, California, Nevada, Georgia, and Florida. Meanwhile, the company has announced the hires of new executives to lead its growth, including Michelle Bythewood, who has a record of working with Texas-based businesses, including Salata Salad Kitchen, where she oversaw expansions into Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta.

In 1952, Nation’s got its start as a small hot dog stand in San Pablo, California. Eventually, it expanded to include dozens of restaurants in Modesto, San Jose, San Francisco, and Sacramento. Local butchers cut meat for Nation’s, and farmers supply produce for the company.

Cities such as Arlington, Frisco, and others in North Texas have seen a consistent arrival of new businesses and residents in recent years — unlike Dallas, where delays in permitting under City Manager T.C. Broadnax have slowed or stopped commercial projects.
