RICHMOND, Va. – Carytown Burgers & Fries is looking to supersize.

Michael Barber, owner of the popular West Cary Street burger joint said he plans to open a Carytown Burgers & Fries Catering and Cafe at 5404 Lakeside Ave. next month and has a West End location planned for November.

Adding more locations has always been a goal for Barber, and next year he plans to look into franchising the brand.

“The only reason I waited so long is I wanted to make sure we were ready,” said Barber, who started the brand 15 years ago. “Out in the real world, you have to make a lot more people happy and there are a lot more critics.”

The 1,000-square-foot Lakeside location will be about twice the size of the burger spot’s original storefront at 3500 ½ W. Cary St.

Barber would not say where the West End location will be but did say he is in the process of finalizing a lease for a location that is at least 2,500 square feet.

“It’s near Short Pump Town Center is all I can say,” Barber said.

    I wonder if it’ll include the art student/hipster/unemployed former art student who still lives with his/her parents?

    How dare this successful business take it’s opportunities to expand their tax and customer base out into the evil counties! How about a store down in the bottom, East End, Manchester, or Northside? Shameful……thinking of their own success instead of the well being of the Richmond City business climate….
