Barrington’s Meatheads is the 12th location for this rapidly expanding specialty burger concept promising to deliver a fun, family-friendly atmosphere and a simple menu with an emphasis on freshness and quality.  Meatheads is opening a 13th location in Lincolnwood this September and Tom, a former executive at Potbelly Sandwich Works, says his near-term goal is to grow the Chicago-based business to 25 Meatheads locations.  They’re also looking at expanding outside Illinois with with a Meatheads in Munster, Indiana.

Tom says the rapid pace of Meatheads’ growth is partly due to their family focus and community-based marketing initiatives, including programs that give back to local causes and reward students for achievements in reading and athletics.
