MYRTLE BEACH — Cook Out, the N.C.-based hamburger chain, plans to open its second Grand Strand location in Myrtle Beach.
The restaurant, known for its grilled burgers, hotdogs and milkshakes, wants to move into the former Burger King building at 1800 N. Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach.
Cook Out opened its first area location earlier this year at 2470 E. U.S. 501 near Comfort Suites Hotel at the University and has been pleased with the reaction in the community, said Dan Creed with Heritage Engineering, which handled work for that location and is working on the new Myrtle Beach location.
The new location in Myrtle Beach aims to open by the end of the year, but the timing will depend on permitting and construction work, he said.
“Cook Out is very excited about the possibility of being in Myrtle Beach,” Creed said.
The city’s Community Appearance Board will review the plans for the 2,853-square-foot building at its meeting at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in the City Services Building, 921 Oak St.
Cook Out was founded in Greensboro, N.C., and is known for its grilled burgers and hotdogs, as well as its milkshakes.
Other than the one that is open and the second one in the works, Creed said he had not heard if there are plans to open any more Cook Out locations along the Grand Strand.
