Capital Region Burger Joint Abruptly Closes All Restaurants

Capital Region Burger Joint Abruptly Closes All Restaurants

It appears all three Smashburger locations in the Albany area have shut down operation. Steve Barnes from the Times Union says the restaurants in Saratoga, Clifton Park and Wolf Road are all closed.

In a photo posted Wednesday on Facebook, a sign on the door of the Saratoga Smashburger reads

Due to economic and labor conditions, this restaurant is closed.

Barnes noted that he tried calling each restaurant, but the phones just rang. Online ordering is also no longer available.

Smashburger arrived in the Capital Region, with Wolf Road as its first location. It quickly expanded to Clifton Park, Saratoga and Niskayuna, though the Niskayuna location closed in 2019.

No word on if this is exclusive to the Capital Region or if more locations will be closing. It’s also not known if the shut downs are temporary or permanent. The chain has approximately 200 franchises nationwide.
