Why own a BurgerFi® restaurant?

BurgerFi® is changing what America thinks about burgers. Our natural burgers are a healthful, wholesome and guilt free indulgence made from fresh, never frozen natural Angus beef that is hormone and antibiotic free and raised humanly to create the best tasting burger possible. All beef dogs, real dairy fresh frozen custard and fresh cut fries, as well as craft beer and wine, are all served up in our urban hip design setting. You can join in the BurgerFication of the Nation® with your own BurgerFi® in your town.

Is there training? Do you provide support?

BurgerFi® provides an extensive training and support program to help you every step of the way. It all starts with three weeks of training at our corporate locations for your general manager, your kitchen manager and your front of the house manager. This initial training occurs 30-45 days prior to your restaurant opening and teaches your key management staff what they need to run your restaurant. When your store opens we also provide a trainer to assist you at your location for the first week. Training continues with your personal Franchise Business Advisor who works with you step by step on an ongoing basis.

How much money can I make?

The Federal Trade Commission regulates what BurgerFi® is allowed to disclose to potential franchisees. As you proceed through the process of purchasing BurgerFi® business, you will receive the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) that details more about the business opportunity and your expected startup expenses.

How much will I need to invest?

The estimated initial investments to establish a BurgerFi® franchise is from $460,000 to $995,000. This includes a franchise fee of $37,500 as well as the restaurant furnishings and equipment, location build out, inventory, point of sale system, grand opening marketing, three month’s rent, permits and working capital to open your business.

Do you offer financing?

We have arrangements with equipment leasing companies with options available to individuals with good credit in most cases. If you have a retirement fund we can also recommend some great programs that allow you to borrow against your retirement fund without paying penalties or taxes.
