BurgerFi Announces Its First College Location Opening Inside Temple University This Summer

Fast casual better burger concept continues expansion into “nontraditional sites” with new franchise agreement with Aramark.

April 24, 2017 // Franchising.com // PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - BurgerFi, one of the nation’s fastest growing, all-natural “better burger” restaurant concepts, announced today that it signed a franchise agreement with Philadelphia-based dining services partner, Aramark. The global food industry leader will operate the brand’s first college campus location at Temple University in Philadelphia and will be located at the newly renovated Howard Gittis Student Center food court.

The agreement with Aramark demonstrates BurgerFi’s growing strength as a national brand. Aramark serves Fortune 500 companies, world champion sports teams, state-of-the-art healthcare providers, world leading educational institutions, iconic destinations and cultural attractions, and numerous municipalities in 19 countries around the world. The Temple University restaurant becomes BurgerFi’s second Philadelphia location and is expected to open its doors to students and visitors in August of 2017.

“Developing this new location with Aramark brings immense value to our expanding franchise network, and we are excited to see BurgerFi at a college campus such as Temple,” said Corey Winograd, Chief Executive Officer of BurgerFi. “We value this relationship with Aramark, a world leader in bringing innovative restaurant brands to large-scale venues.”

BurgerFi announced its first non-traditional site agreement with HMSHost last month. Also an established leader in the food service industry, HMSHost will operate the new BurgerFi restaurant at Fort Lauderdale International Airport.

This year, BurgerFi plans to open approximately 20 new restaurants, primarily through franchise development, and is targeting Virginia, Washington D.C., North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and New York for domestic expansion. With global demand, and enormous opportunity for expansion, BurgerFi is poised for another year of rapid growth.
