BurgerFi was founded in 2011 by gourmet chefs committed to serving only the top 1% of best-tasting certified, 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. Our significant resources (in both people and cutting-edge technology) equip our franchisees with the tools that they need to achieve success.
BurgerFi was awarded the #4 spot on Fast Casual’s 2017 Top 100 Movers & Shakers list; and ranked as one of fastest and smartest-growing brands in franchising, and a leader in the better burger category by Franchise Times in their 2017 and 2018 Fast and Serious list.
The ideal partner should meet the following criteria to gain consideration for a BurgerFi franchise:
Aside from the required capital investment, a franchisee must be actively involved as an operator of their BurgerFi restaurant(s) either through their own involvement or that of a dedicated operating partner (with equity) who is committed to the full-time management of the BurgerFi business.
The estimated initial investment ranges from $720,000 - $968,500
BurgerFi franchisees receive extensive support and training in a manner that positions them for success, including:
"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
"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
"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
"I’ve been involved in the hospitality industry for more than 25 years and own several franchise concepts, so I know a good opportunity when I see one. BurgerFi is a standout brand in the ‘better burger’ segment that truly understands what today’s consumers are looking for. We were on the hunt for a franchise that is uniquely positioned for growth, and found that in BurgerFi."
