BurgerFi is planning to expand its presence by opening up to 30 restaurants in the US this year.
Greg Gatto and Scott Hodes from The Burger Bunch will open their first BurgerFi restaurant in Martin County, Florida, while Dhruv Patel and his three partners from Saini will open and operate restaurants in Atlanta.
The company has also partnered with restaurant industry veteran Nick Quarantillo to open three locations in Clearwater-St. Petersburg, Florida.
BurgerFi franchise development manager Charles Guzzetta said: “We are thrilled that BurgerFi restaurants will be in these key regions as we continue our national expansion.
“They join our mission to serve the top 1% of best-tasting certified, American Black Angus beef and improve guest experience across all platforms: in-store, delivery and online.”
Quarantillo said: “Americans are looking for a fresh, better burger that has the same quality every time they come in. Families, especially, are looking for an elevated dining room experience from the friendliness of the team to sustainability efforts.”
Established in 2011, the burger chain currently operates more than 100 restaurants in the US. The company uses natural Angus beef burgers from farms that avoid the use of steroids, antibiotics and growth hormones.
