Burger restaurant to cook up second Myrtle Beach location

October 21, 2013 by  

Cook Out, a hamburger chain based in North Carolina, will open a second location in Myrtle Beach, it has been revealed this month. Although the time frame is uncertain and depends on the speed of construction and obtaining permits, the restaurant hopes to be up and running by the end of the year.

The restaurant is known for its hotdogs, grilled hamburgers, and particularly its huge menu of milkshakes, which include flavors as diverse as banana pudding, Hi-C punch, and peanut butter fudge, in addition to more traditional offerings.

Cook Out hopes to take over a former Burger King location at 1800 North Kings Highway. This will be the its second outlet in Myrtle Beach. The first opened earlier this year in what is known as the 501 corridor; a site at 2470 East U.S. 501, close to the Comfort Suites Hotel.

The 501 location has proved to be very popular with the community’s residents, according to the engineering team handling work for the eatery’s locations, leading to the decision to open the second site. A number of other businesses are locating in the corridor as well, revitalizing the area. At the present time it’s not known if the company will open still more Myrtle Beach locations.

Cook Out’s local manager could work with a flyer printing company to develop a handout to distribute on opening day. They could also consider having brochure printers create a mailer to reach potential customers located in more distant areas.
