GPS Hospitality, a rapidly growing franchisee group, announced that it will expand its national footprint into five new states with the acquisition of 194 BURGER KING restaurants.

It’s rare to see such fast growth in this competitive industry, and it’s a privilege to be part of this team that’s making it happen at GPS.”
