BurgerFi was founded in 2011 by gourmet chefs committed to serving only the top 1% of best-tasting American Black Angus beef from the top ranches across the country. Known for delivering the all-natural burger experience in a fast-casual environment, we are committed to an uncompromising and rewarding dining experience that ensures no steroids, antibiotics, growth hormones, chemicals or additives are ever used.

With over 100 locations, the BurgerFi franchise system has been carefully developed to create consistency in design, operations, and the overall customer experience.

Testimonials

"I was introduced to BurgerFi during my time in South Florida playing for the Miami Heat, and immediately saw the brand’s immense potential. From the unique product that appeals to a wide consumer demographic to the outstanding internal support team, BurgerFi is a one-of-a-kind franchise opportunity and we’re thrilled to be a part of the team."

Mike Miller, Multi-Unit Owner

"When we met with the BurgerFi team, it was apparent that their systems, human capital support structure and technology were as advanced as it gets today."

Kevin Bullard, Multi-Unit Owner / Operator

"I have had more and more people tell me about BurgerFi’s exceptional food quality and how it remains the same regardless of what location they – the guest — visits. That takes dedication at the corporate level, and as a franchisee I am thankful for that. They are doing a great job of developing the brand the right way."

Manuel Sanchez, Owner / Operator

"BurgerFi was the only franchise concept my wife and I were willing to relocate for. After retiring from corporate life and living in Tampa, I was looking for my next life chapter, and came across the BurgerFi’s franchise opportunities. I was instantly impressed by the concept’s unique design and all-natural, gourmet food. After experiencing the brand firsthand, my wife and I moved to Atlanta to open our first of many locations, which has already been recognized as a top burger restaurant in the market."

Ron Altman, Owner / Operator

"BurgerFi is really invested in the success of its franchisees, which is why the brand has been able to support the kind of growth it’s had"

Andy Rooney, Multi-Unit Owner / Operator

"My father and I have owned a handful of businesses over the past 25 years and knew it was time to venture into franchising and foodservice. After one visit to BurgerFi, we were hooked on the high-quality food and the brand’s commitment to sustainability. Our first location has been up and running for nearly a year and because of the success we’re experiencing, we already have plans to open additional locations throughout Florida."

Kevin Koury, Owner / Operator
