A California burger chain continues to grow its presence in Texas.

In May, Nation’s Giant Hamburgers plans to begin renovations on a 2,800-square-foot space at Rayzor Ranch in Denton, according to a state filing. The project carries an estimated construction cost of $350,000 and is expected to be completed by November.

The Dallas Express reported in November that Nation’s is also opening locations in Frisco and Arlington. Those projects have estimated construction costs of a combined $1.5 million, and both are scheduled to be complete by June. Those stores mark the hamburger company’s first locations in Texas and possibly the company’s first locations beyond California.

In 1952, Nation’s opened as a small hot dog stand in San Pablo, California. The menu expanded to include 28 restaurants in Sacramento, San Jose, San Francisco, and Modesto. California butchers cut the restaurant’s meat, and local farmers supply produce to the company.

Nation’s announced in August that it would begin to expand into “new markets” in 2024, according to FSR Magazine.

The company advertises franchise opportunities in Texas, California, Nevada, Oklahoma, Florida, and Georgia. At the same time, Nation’s announced new executive hires to lead the company’s 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.

Cities such as Frisco, Arlington, and others in North Texas have seen a steady influx of new residents and businesses in recent years, unlike Dallas, where delays in permitting under City Manager T.C. Broadnax have hampered commercial projects.
