Red Robin’s Burger Works set to open by Ohio State campus Red Robin Gourmet Burgers Inc., a chain with plenty of suburban, sit-down experience, is testing its small-shop, fast-casual potential near Ohio State University.The Greenwood Village, Colo.-based chain expects to open Red Robin’s Burger Works across from the Ohio Union at 1708 N. High St. on Monday. It’ll be just the second Burger Works for the more than 450-restaurant chain. The first opened last year in Denver, with a third site in a Denver mall set to open this spring.The arrival of Burger Works was confirmed last fall but Red Robin (NASDAQ:RRGB) declined to comment on its Columbus plans at that time. Brian Bogue, the restaurant’s general manager, said in a press release the campus location allows Red Robin to reach customers it couldn’t in the past through the chain’s four traditional restaurants circling the Interstate 270 outerbelt.More below:http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2012/03/20/red-robins-burger-works-set-to-open.html
