Red Robin names April opening date

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers will open the doors of its 5,818-square-foot location in Turkey Creek in mid-April.

“Definitely, Red Robin is excited to come into your area,” Red Robin spokesperson Jamie Minkin said.

“Red Robin is a family-friendly, casual restaurant chain. The Knoxville area just seemed like it would be a really good fit for our restaurant,” she added.

The Knoxville Red Robin joins several locations in Nashville and Memphis, and one in Chattanooga.

For its grand-opening, Red Robin will conduct its “Burgers with a Heart” campaign, donating 50 cents from the sale of each burger to The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

“Guests that come in during grand-opening week and have a burger, 50 cents from each gourmet burger that is sold will go directly to [that],” Minkin said.

The money helps “with child safety and recovery efforts and educational programs,” she added.

Red Robin has announced it is hiring more than 100 people before the restaurant’s April opening.

“All of those people will be hired to work at the restaurant,” Minkin said, the new hires joining restaurant manager Whitney Nutt.

Job seekers can inquire at the restaurant, 11433 Parkside Drive.

Red Robin carries more than 24 “gourmet burgers,” Minkin said.

“We do encourage all of our guests to customize their burgers to fit the tastes and dietary needs of each individual,” she added.

Non-customized burger options include relatively tame selections such as the Red Robin Gourmet Cheeseburger and more unusual offerings, such as the Bonzai Burger, a teriyaki-marinated burger served with grilled pineapple and cheddar cheese.

According to Minkin, all burgers are made fresh and cooked to order.

“Our restaurants really are meant to provide a very fun and energetic atmosphere for guests to come, have a good time … and celebrate special moments in life,” Minkin said.

Birthday celebrations, for example, feature Red Robin’s own birthday song and free burgers for e-club members.

“One of the great things about Red Robin is that it’s really a ‘come as you are’ environment,” Minkin said.

“Kids can be kids and so can adults,” she added.
