5 Fast Facts about BurgerFi You Should Know

Eastchase's BurgerFi is set to open in early summer, but what why are we so excited? Read on to find out more about this Florida-based chain!

More than burgers

BurgerFi’s chief seller is, of course, their delicious burgers. That said, the rest of their menu is absolutely chock-full of tasty treats, including hot dogs, milkshakes, and custards. While Eastchase’s BurgerFi menu may differ, you can check out what they’ve got at other locations by clicking here.

But... the burgers are pretty darn good

Look – BurgerFi might be more than burgers… but we can’t sleep on their title offering. BurgerFi’s got options for both traditional burger-lovers as well as vegetarians. In fact, one of the company’s main selling points is that their food is “gourmet.” It’s not often you hear burgers described as “gourmet,” so we’re waiting to try one.

Committed to sustainability

BurgerFi is furnished with tables and chairs made from recycled materials like milk jugs and Coca-Cola bottles. In addition, you’ll find energy-efficient lighting and fans in many of their locations. And since there are so many burger places that seem to not care, it’s good to see BurgerFi making a small difference!

All-natural food items

In addition to BurgerFi’s commitment to the environment, they’re also watching out for the customer. Sure – your usual burger joint might use black Angus beef. But can they claim the meat is antibiotic and hormone-free like BurgerFi can? They also claim that their animals are free-range.

BurgerFi has been growing quickly

BurgerFi is on the up-and-up, according to Technomic. The Chicago-based restaurant consulting and research firm said that in 2015 BurgerFi was the fastest-growing company, with sales just under $200 million. While we haven’t seem them on a list since, it stands to reason their expansion to Montgomery is a good sign.
