BurgerFi Announces 18-Unit Expansion In Texas

September 18, 2015 // Franchising.com // North Palm Beach, FL – BurgerFi, one of the most rapidly-growing, fast-casual chains in America, has announced two new development agreements for the Texas market. In separate deals with SM Restaurant Partners, LLC and Fresh Burger LLC, 18 restaurants are planned for Dallas and the surrounding areas.

“BurgerFi fits a food culture that is perfect for the Dallas area as customers everywhere are holding restaurants to higher quality standards,” said Corey Winograd, Chief Executive Officer. “They want clean, natural food. They want to dine in a restaurant that reflects their own values, such as sustainability, low energy costs and recycling programs. This is where the future of the burger business is headed. We’re excited about our growth in other Texas cities like San Antonio, Austin and Houston and we are thrilled to bring our unique product to Dallas.”

Winograd continued, “We have established a reputation for strategic growth, and believe that both SM Restaurant Partners, LLC and Fresh Burger LLC have the genuine passion, industry experience and deep infrastructure to expand BurgerFi’s presence in Texas.”

SM Restaurant Partners, LLC is led by Steve and Bebee Milam; and Fresh Burger LLC, by Justin Sharbutt. Both groups represent highly-experienced multiunit operators of well-regarded, national restaurant brands.

“Americans everywhere want the great taste of all-natural beef and they want it in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere,” said Steve Milam, Founder, SM Restaurant Group. “We are excited to align with the best in the business in BurgerFi and we can’t wait to see our vision come to fruition.”

“We are honored to be selected by BurgerFi to assist in expanding its presence in the state of Texas,” said Justin Sharbutt, CEO, Fresh Burger LLC. “We look forward to bringing the fresh, all natural, hormone-free concept to Dallas and replicating the success the brand has already enjoyed nationwide.”

BurgerFi is on track to have more than 100 restaurants operating by the first quarter of 2016, including international locations in Mexico City, Panama and London.

About BurgerFi

Established in 2011, BurgerFi is among the nation’s fastest-growing restaurant chains, with 77 U.S. locations and plans to expand in Mexico, Panama and the UK. The better burger concept was founded by gourmet chefs committed to serving fresh food of the highest quality. In fact, the brand uses only 100% natural Angus beef patties and its “Never Ever Program” ensures no steroids, antibiotics, growth hormones, chemicals or additives are ever used. BurgerFi’s made-in-house menu favorites include the VegeFi burger, Vienna and Kobe-style hot dogs, hand-cut French fries and onion rings, frozen custard, and natural sugar cane sodas. Less burger joint, more five-star restaurant, there are no shortcuts at BurgerFi – or freezers or heat lamps, with all recipes created from natural, fresh ingredients that team members prepare daily.
