The Krystal Company announced the grand re-opening on Thursday, Jan. 31, of the Krystal restaurant at 7300 Shallowford Road, after a complete “scrape and rebuild” that razed the existing building and replaced it with a new prototype. The redesigned restaurant is the second of its kind in Tennessee.
There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m. with the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce, and remarks by Krystal CEO Paul Macaluso and Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger. Krystal Foundation winner Tyner High School band will perform at 12 p.m.
The first 100 customers receive free Krystal for a month and anyone can register to win free Krystal
for a year. Krystal will give away free T-shirts while supplies last.
The new 1,788 square-foot restaurant includes an improved kitchen and facilities layout for maximized efficiency and employee awareness. The building is square like Krystal’s famous burgers and made of three primary building materials – wood, metal and stucco – for ease of construction and architecture that is both contemporary and nostalgic. Home to 97 Krystal restaurants, Tennessee is expected to have 25 additional scrape and rebuilds occur in the next two years.
