There's big expansion plans in the works for Hat Creek Burger Company. According to a release, the fast-casual burger chain from Austin will be opening 10 more restaurants across Texas this year and into 2019.

Since the restaurant's start as a food truck on 6th Street in 2008, Hat Creek Burgers has been committed to providing fellowship and cheeseburgers to the communities it serves.

The brand expanded outside of Austin to the Dallas area, into McKinney and Rowlett. The Rowlett store opened at the end of February and is the chain's 10th location.

More Hat Burgers are on the way, with additional locations headed for Walnut Hill Lane and the city of Allen later this year.

Other locations to follow in 2018 include San Marcos, Temple,  Waco, Sachse, and the Austin–Bergstrom International Airport.

"We're looking forward to continuing to grow in the communities that we have come to  consider home over the years as well as into these new communities to serve new families," says founder Drew Gressett in a release.

For 2019, they'e planning on four locations in Houston.

Hat Creek does burgers, milkshakes, and gluten-free chicken flashers. Each location features a custom playscape for children, some including a mini Airstream trailer.

In addition to their lunch and dinner menu, Hat Creek also offers a full breakfast menu of  tacos, platters and pancakes from 7-10:30 am daily.
