Chanticleer Holdings Finalizes the Acquisition of The Burger Company

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - September 10, 2014) - Chanticleer Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOTR) (Chanticleer Holdings, or the "Company"), owner and operator of multiple restaurant brands internationally and domestically, announced today that the Company has finalized the purchase of The Burger Company in Charlotte, NC, an award winning flex casual burger joint in the fast growing better-burger space.

Rich Adams, President and COO of American Roadside Burgers, commented, "The Burger industry is a $72 billion dollar market with the better-burger category being the fastest growing sector. The Burger Company acquisition, with its unique format of the restaurant, helps prepare us to begin franchising both domestic and internationally. The Burger Company also complements the rebranding of American Roadside Burgers as we continue to grow and evolve into the American Burger Company." 

Chairman and CEO of Chanticleer Holdings, Mike Pruitt, commented, "This acquisition is an integral step in our strategic growth plan as we prepare to take the better-burger category into our international markets. Our management teams in these markets have already shown strong interest in adding the concept in their region and we believe the rebranding and marketing of the American Burger Company will appeal to these international markets."

"We are proud of what our family-run business has accomplished over the last few years and now we have the opportunity to take this already profitable operation and become more profitable with Chanticleer's corporate team in place. We are also excited to remain a part of Chanticleer and becoming a shareholder of the Company," David Smith, owner of The Burger Company.
