(NASDAQ: HOTR) ("Chanticleer" or the "Company"), owner and operator of multiple restaurant brands internationally and domestically, today announced that its better burger concept, Little Big Burger ("LBB"), expects to open a new location at Progress Ridge TownSquare in Beaverton, Oregon this summer.

Adrian Oca, Director of Operations for the Pacific Northwest for Chanticleer Holdings, Inc, commented, "We are very pleased to expand our presence in the Portland market with the upcoming addition of our tenth location. Like many others in the area, I work in Portland and live on the Westside. The Little Big Burger at Progress Ridge will be the first in that community, and a convenient and welcome addition for Westside dwellers who are already loyal to the brand as well as to a new audience of diners in Beaverton and Tigard."
Rich Adams, President and COO of American Burger Co., commented, "Since our acquisition of Little Big Burger in September 2015, our LBB stores have achieved impressive results. We are excited to open our tenth location, making the brand significantly more accessible to the Westside community. Earlier this month, we also announced our strategy to further expand the LBB reach in the Pacific Northwest with the opening of ten new locations in the Seattle area. I am very pleased with the progress of our expansion and I am optimistic about LBB's future."
