To celebrate with the community, the first 100 guests to visit the restaurant on opening day will receive a free Burger 21 t-shirt and all guests will have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win a free tailgate grill.

Locally-owned and operated by Mike Stygles and Bruce Anderson, Burger 21 Albany features 21 unique, chef-inspired burger creations, hand-crafted signature shakes, gourmet hot dogs, hand-breaded chicken tenders and fresh salads served in a contemporary-style diner atmosphere with fast, high-touch service.

“We’re thrilled to be the first franchisees to bring Burger 21’s diverse menu and unique culture to Albany,” said Stygles, franchisee. “Through Front Burner Brands’ different restaurant formats between Burger 21 and The Melting Pot, we are able to provide guests with dining experiences unlike any other in town, while offering the highest quality ingredients. We have no doubt that the community will be pleased with the addition of Burger 21.”
