Five Guys Burgers and Fries in Longview will close permanently next month after operating in Longview for almost a decade.
“This location permanently closes our doors,” says the sign at the front door of the business at 3405 N. Fourth St. “Our last day of business will be Sunday, October 2, 2022 at 8:00 pm. Thank you for providing a wonderful drive to our guests and the town of Longview, Texas.”
The business opened on October 22, 2012, according to the News-Journal archives.

The Longview closure follows the July 2021 full closure of Five Guys Burgers and Fries on South Broadway Avenue in Tyler.
