ATLANTA – (October 27, 2015) – On the heels of celebrating their third anniversary, BURGER KING® franchisee GPS Hospitality today announces the purchase of 14 BURGER KING® restaurants in their home state of Georgia.
These new locations include North Georgia cities of Gainesville, Buford and the Athens area. During the past two months, GPS has purchased 24 total BURGER KING® restaurants in the Peach State.

In the past three years, GPS has exponentially grown from their original 42 restaurants in Atlanta to 221 restaurants across nine states. The company will have remodeled 29 restaurants in the state by the end of this year and plans to open their second new location in December.
