BurgerFi traces its roots bacak to founder John Rosatti’s restaurant ” The Office” in Delray Beach, Florida, and its all-natural Angus “CEO Burger” that instantly became the restaurant’s top seller and most talked about item. Rosatti envisioned taking his award winning burger beyond Delray’s famed Atlantic Avenue and spreading its appeal across America. From this vision, the “BurgerFication of the Nation” began.
The company offers only Angus prime cut hamburgers, hand cut French fries, custards, and a variety of craft beers and wine. In mid-2018, the company released their chicken burger featuring free-range chicken breast meat. The company is best known for organic, antibiotic-free meats and recently earned an A rating from Consumer Reports and numerous other groups.
Franchising began in 2014. BurgerFi currently has 100 locations in 20 states, as well as franchises in Panama, Kuwait, and Mexico. In 2015, Burgerfi was the fastest growing franchise in the US.
In addition to free-range, organic meats, BurgerFi focuses on eco-friendly and sustainable restaurant components like chairs made from upcycled Coke bottles, tables created from upcycled milk jugs, wood-panel walls designed from No. 2 Southern Pine Lumber, and counter tops made from 100 percent compressed recycled paper.
In October 2020, the company hired Julio Rodriguez as its new CEO.
Also in October 2020, BurgerFi introduced a new spicy chicken sandwich to the menu lineup.
BurgerFi headquarters are located in North Palm Beach, Florida.
