Hawaii-based Teddy’s Bigger Burgers will open several new franchise locations and company-owned stores in Hawaii, Seattle, Wash., Southern California and Iowa.

The Iowa City location is under construction and is slated to open in June. Meanwhile, Teddy’s signed its first Southern California franchisee and second franchise agreement in Seattle. Both franchisees are scouting locations at present.

A new local franchise store will open on Kapiolani Blvd., due to open this month, while corporate stores will open May 10 and May 31 in Kaneohe and Ewa, respectively.

The company website also lists a Kapolei location as “coming soon,” as well as seven operating locations in Hawaii, one in Woodinville, Wash., and another in Tokyo, Japan. 

Teddy’s 1950’s-themed burger restaurant was launched in Hawaii in 1998.
