BurgerFi Celebrates Wounded Warrior Project with Month Long Promotion
Company-Wide National Promotion Aims to Raise Funds Over the Entire Month of November and National Sundae Day
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ - BurgerFi, one of the most rapidly-expanding fast casual restaurant chains in America, is throwing their support behind Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) for the month of November. National Sundae Day falls on Veteran's Day this year, and BurgerFi has vowed to give back to the nation's veterans in a sweet way --- a small complimentary sundae with any purchase. Each guest will receive a small complimentary sundae with any purchase, all day, and customers will have their choice of vanilla, chocolate, or swirl, topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
"We're excited and honored to be a Proud Supporter of Wounded Warrior Project. At BurgerFi, we take pride in supporting and giving back to the men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting our country," says CEO Corey Winograd.
Since 2003, WWP has grown its lifesaving programs and services to meet the growing needs of the constituency it serves. Currently, WWP provides support to more than 80,000 injured service members and over 13,000 caregivers and family support members through 20, free programs and services. These programs and services are uniquely structured to engage warriors, nurture their minds and bodies, and encourage economic empowerment. Through a high-touch and interactive approach, WWP's vision is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history.
"We're extremely grateful for BurgerFi's energetic support of the Wounded Warrior Project mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors," said Gary Corless, executive vice president of Strategic Giving at WWP. "Their generous spirit gives us the critical resources we need to provide the 20 life-saving programs and services, free of charge, to the injured veterans, caregivers and families we serve."
Through its #VeteransDayIs social campaign, WWP is encouraging Americans to support injured veterans by posting what #VeteransDayIs to them. Supporters can get involved through various social platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Periscope, and Google+.
Available while supplies last, BurgerFi will be distributing Proud Supporter decals, lapel pins, and BurgerFi Support Our Troops wrist bands, at all stores. All BurgerFi locations will participate in this November long program while encouraging customers to donate to WWP in honor of Veteran's Day.

Established in 2011, BurgerFi is among the nation's fastest-growing restaurant chains, with 79 restaurants in the U.S. and expansion now underway in Mexico, Panama, and the UK.". The better burger concept was founded by gourmet chefs committed to serving fresh food of the highest quality. Dissatisfaction with what was happening in the burger market at the time, fast food and their lackluster offerings inspired the launch of The Better Burger Concept. BurgerFi uses only 100% natural Angus beef patties and 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. BurgerFi has been recognized as #185 on Inc. 500 List of "Fastest-Growing Private U.S. Companies", Top 50 "Movers & Shakers" by Fast Casual.com, "Top Brands of 2014" by Fast Casual.com, "#1 Fastest Growing Company" by Technomic in 2013, and "Franchise of the Year" by QSR Magazine in 2013. Less burger joint, more five-star restaurant, there are no shortcuts at BurgerFi – or microwaves, freezers or heat lamps, with all recipes created from natural, fresh ingredients that require team members to cut chop, mix and prepare daily.
