Popular burger chain Five Guys is taking its HQ to the Carlyle neighborhood this month, Virginia Business reported.

The move from Lorton to 1940 Duke Street — the Carlyle Crescent building — was announced back in November. The chain started franchising back in 2003 and opened its second and third locations in Alexandria. Now there are over 1,600 locations worldwide.

The last day in the Lorton location was last Friday, Virginia Business said, and the new main offices on Duke Street will open on July 17.
