Five Guys Burgers and Fries, a well-known burger chain, has submitted a site plan for the former Mattress Giant building in White City Plaza.
"Five Guys is looking to come to Shrewsbury, but we have not yet signed a lease and cannot release more information than that at this time," said Five Guys Public Relations Director Molly Catalano.
Kristen Wilson of the Shrewsbury Planning Zoning Department acknowledges that Karen Johnson of Charter Realty, Inc has submitted a site plan for the space.
"I cannot tell you any more than that at this time," she said.
The first Five Guys was opened in Arlington, VA in the chain now has over 750 locations in over 40 states and Canada, according to the Five Guys website, with the closest location in Marlborough.
"There are over 250,000 possible ways to order a burger (at Five Guys)," according to the website. "There are no freezers at Five Guys locations, only coolers, nothing is ever frozen."
Johnson declined to comment further on the site plan expecting more information to be finalized later this week.
In May, the selectmen approved an alcoholic beverages pouring license and common victualler's license for Jimmy's Ale House, which is looking to move into the former Bugaboo Creek at 50 Boston Tpke., also in White City.
