Gyrene Burger Company Opens in Knoxville

The new military-themed restaurant started by Domino's Pizza founder has Rob Wynkoop, a First Lieutenant in the US Marines, as its Knoxville owner


Knoxville, TN -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/30/2014 -- Hungry Knoxville residents and visitors now have a new place to grab a bite, and they're being ordered to fall in line for delicious food. Gyrene Burger, the new restaurant chain from Domino's Pizza founder Tom Monaghan, has established its foundation franchise location in the Cumberland Strip. The first in the area, Gyrene Burger offers fast delivery of fresh-cooked burgers and hand-cut fries.

The foundation Gyrene Burger store in Knoxville is run by Rob Wynkoop, a radio platoon commander for the 4th Marine Division Communications Company in Cincinnati, Ohio. As a First Lieutenant in the Marine Corps Reserve, it was logical for Wynkoop to open the restaurant. The name Gyrene is actually a combination of GI and Marine, and Monaghan, a former Marine himself, started the chain hoping the business would empower military veterans, letting them take their honed skills into their own business.

The difference is in the precision Gyrene Burger takes with their food, taking care to cook and deliver burgers in as little as 10 minutes flat. Wynkoop is currently participating in the annual two week service required of all Marine reservists, but after it ends, he'll be right back giving Knoxville their best burgers.

The 100% Angus burgers consists of two meat patties cooked to perfection and topped with ketchup, cheese, bacon, mustard and pickles. Custom burgers, triple burgers, and bacon cheeseburgers are also available, as well as an assortment of wings and chicken meals. Desserts are on hand too with giant cookies and Hershey chocolate pie.

The Gyrene Burger is a delivery restaurant (and offers eat in too) located at 1927 Cumberland Avenue, Knoxville, Tennessee 37916 and is open 11:oo a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday-Wednesday and Sunday, and 11:00 a.m to 11:00 p.m. Thursday-Saturday. They can be reached at (865) 281-5426
