NBC Washington draws our attention to the industry trade publication Store’s Magazine, which has named the ubiquitous D.C.-area burger joint Five Guys as the fastest growing restaurant chain in the country. The business, which started out as a single location in Arlington in 1986, now boasts more than 750 locations across 40 states and parts of Canada. With nine locations within the District line, the company ranked No. 27 on City Paper‘s list of D.C.’s Most Powerful Restaurants.
