I stopped by my local Five Guys last Sunday, only to find this:
This was was store #2, the oldest one (out of a current 1,154) in operation. The original closed years ago, and now sadly this one is out. This makes Store #3, in Springfield at 6541 Backlick Road, the oldest Five Guys. So, go visit. Feel the history.
The explanation given by the company is: "In the last 22 years we have honed in on the design and function of our restaurants and have been making an effort to update our older locations. Unfortunately, adequate renovations are not feasible in the existing location. We are committed to opening another location within the Skyline, Bailey's Crossroads, Seven Corners area and are appreciative of all of the customers who have walked through these doors."
As the poster says, the company is running a memorial page for the closed Skyline store, here: http://www.fiveguys.com/contact-us/skyline.aspx
