Austin-based burger brand P. Terry's is planning to open its first Houston-area location in Richmond by fall, according to officials with the restaurant.

On the menu

Per its website, the eatery highlights its use of fresh, quality ingredients, such as 100% Black Angus beef without hormones and antibiotics, hand-cut Idaho Burbank potatoes cooked only in canola oil, hand-spun milkshakes, and lemonade and orange juice made from freshly squeezed citrus.

A closer look

The opening of the Richmond P. Terry's will call for 80 crew members, according to a Feb. 7 email from Group Vice President Monty Montgomery, who will oversee the arrival and launch of the new location.

This particular restaurant will feature a dining room and a double drive-thru, Montgomery said.

Inspired by the classic burger stands of the 1950s and '60s, the Richmond P. Terry's will follow the brand's architectural trends with a unique, Googie-style design from Micheal Hsu Office of Architecture. Googie architecture is a type of futurist architecture influenced by car culture and the Space Age that was popularized in the U.S. from around 1945 to the early 1970s, according to information from the Smithsonian.

Offering input

Montgomery said in the email that the brand has explored expanding to the Greater Houston area for many years, and that training provided by a select crew from P. Terry's established markets in Austin and San Antonio will be pivotal to the timeline to welcome customers to P. Terry's first Houston restaurant.

"This type of expansion requires multiple levels of preparation to ensure the developed culture travels with the brand," Montgomery wrote in an email. "This process being the most important will play a factor in when we set an opening date."
