Epic Burger was founded in Chicago, Illinois, in 2008 by current CEO David Friedman. The company is a privately owned business which operates 7 locations, most of them in the downtown Chicago area. Friedman wanted to open a restaurant that offered fast food, but not frozen or processed food, at a reasonable price.
The company is known for using locally grown produce and organic, free range meats, as well as foods with no artificial colors or ingredients. The company’s motto is “A More Mindful Burger.” Epic Burger also serves French fries, turkey burgers, smoothies, and milk shakes.
