BurgerFi, which was founded in February 2011 by gifted restaurateur and entrepreneur, John Rosatti, is part of the better burger movement and the Burgerfication of the Nation®. BurgerFi serves delicious, all-natural free-range Angus beef burgers that is free of hormones, steroids, antibiotics, additives, and chemicals. BurgerFi burgers are made fresh to order, and are never frozen or microwaved.
In addition to their popular all-natural beef burgers, BurgerFi also serves a homemade quinoa VegeFi Burger®, fresh hand-cut fries and hand-battered onion rings cooked in 100% peanut oil; Wagyu Kobe beef hotdogs; freshly prepared custards and concretes using cream, farm-fresh eggs, natural cane sugar, and a touch of salt; craft beers and a selection of wine; sodas made of natural cane sugar; and a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine with over 120 drink flavors.
BurgerFi also incorporates environmentally sustainable elements into the interior design of each location. Furnishings are made from recycled wood, milk cartons, and Coca-Cola bottles. Special ceiling fans use 66 percent less energy than nine standard ceiling fans. Restrooms are equipped with high-efficiency hand dryers that use 80 percent less energy than traditional dryers. (The latter results in a 95 percent savings when compared to the use of paper towels.) Additionally, recycled paper products are also used whenever feasible.
Since the first BurgerFi debuted in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Florida on February 5, 2011, the company has grown to forty-seven locations – with the newest restaurant opening in Leawood, KS tomorrow. Presently, there are BurgerFi locations spanning from Ann Arbor to Key West and Mesa to Boston. Twenty-five additional stores are currently under construction and slated to open in 2014, including Napa Valley, Anchorage and Denver.
BurgerFi was named the fastest growing restaurant chain, with sales under $200 million, by Technomic's Annual Report. BurgerFi was also featured in an article on inc.com, noting the chain's popularity and outstanding growth, in April 2014. Additionally, the website thrillist.com noted BurgerFi as one of "12 small chains that might someday dominate the world."
