Gourmet hamburger maker Twisted Root plans Bedford location

Twisted Root Burger Co. has bought the vacant property at the southeast corner of Central Drive and Harwood Road in Bedford and plans to open a restaurant in February.

It will be the company’s eighth Dallas-Fort Worth location. Twisted Root, which offers burgers made from scratch, has locations in Dallas, Richardson, Roanoke, Fairview, Plano and Arlington.

"We opened our first Twisted Root location just six years ago, and I’ve been thrilled at how the DFW community has embraced our better burger concept," said owner Jason Boso, in a statement. "By expanding to Bedford, we’ll be sharing our chef driven menu and fun, casual atmosphere with lots of new customers, and I’m confident they’ll like our burgers as much as we do."

The location is in front of Bedford Meadows shopping center. Its new owner, Legacy Alliance Holdings, has been working with the city to redevelop the corner and shopping center. The center added six new leases this year.

Legacy Alliance, based in Addison, bought the 59,909-square-foot shopping center in 2011. At the time, the center was 40 percent leased.

Roger Smeltzer with Vision Commercial negotiated the sale. Carter Wilson with Cambridge Companies represented Twisted Root.

Del Frisco's sets IPO price at $14 to $16

Southlake-based Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, which in January said it plans to go public, on Tuesday filed disclosures showing it hopes to issue up to 8.05 million shares at $14 to $16 each. The company will sell 4.33 million of the shares, raising an estimated $57.2 million after expenses, while its largest shareholder, Lone Star Fund, plans to sell at least 2.67 million shares, or up to 3.7 million shares if the demand exists. (Lone Star bought a predecessor corporation in 2006.) An issue date has not been announced, but the shares will trade under the ticker DFRG on the Nasdaq. Del Frisco's said it will use $50 million to pay down outstanding debt.

According to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Del Frisco's last year reported $9 million in net income on $201.6 million in sales. That compared to $8.7 million in earnings on $165.6 million in revenues in 2010. It operates 32 restaurants in 18 states under three names: Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, Sullivan's Steakhouse, and Del Frisco's Grille.
