Elevation Burger, the Arlington-based burger chain with locations in seven states, is preparing to open a new location on Route 1 in Hyattsville, near Jefferson Street.

Per a release, “Entrepreneurs and brothers David and Christopher Wallis along with their wives have signed a seven-unit franchise agreement for the greater Washington D.C. area, the first of which will open in Hyattsville in March.”

Elevation Burger, which opened its first spot in 2002, started franchising locations in 2008 and plans to expand into California, Nevada, and Maine.

Last month, Elevation inked a deal with a Bahrain-based company to open locations in the Middle East, with the first to open in a Bahraini shopping mall later this year.
