Krystal to relocate corporate headquarters to Atlanta

ATLANTA — Krystal, the fast-food burger joint known for its square hamburgers, is relocating its corporate headquarters from Chattanooga, Tenn., to Atlanta.

The company was founded in Chattanooga in 1932.

“Chattanooga has been a wonderful home for Krystal, and we appreciate the support of the community,” Krystal’s president and CEO Doug Pendergast said in a news release. “Our five-year plan calls for aggressive new store growth and Atlanta provides a more central location with access to the one of the country’s largest airports. Our new support center will enable us to provide better support to our existing restaurants and to accelerate new restaurant development across the southeast.”

The company operates roughly 350 restaurants in 11 states.
