Smashburger coming to Overland Park, Lawrence

I get the feeling that at a restaurant convention, someone last year stood up and suggested that folks in Kansas City consume a lot more burgers than the rest of the country.

Smashburger, a fast-casual burger joint based out of Denver, will be the latest burger chain to enter the Kansas City market, with two stores slated to open in the spring.

The Star reports that the restaurant in Overland Park will be splitting a space with Starbucks in the Fountains Shopping Center (6555 W. 119th Street), where Starbucks is downsizing and giving up the west corner. And the Lawrence Journal-World has footage of the Lawrence location, which will be in the Bauer Farm development at the northeast corner of Sixth Street and Wakarusa Drive.
