Experienced and sophisticated multi-unit restaurant operators and/or business professionals with a track record of building strong and successful teams.
For each BurgerFi restaurant to be developed a prospective franchisee must have at least $500,000 in liquid assets and a net worth of not less than $1,000,000.
The estimated total initial investment ranges from $629,900-$1,011,750, which includes the franchise fee of $45,000.
A franchisee must be actively involved as an operator of their BurgerFi restaurant(s) either through their own involvement or that of a dedicated operating partner (with equity) who is committed to the full-time management of the BurgerFi business.
In order to effectively manage their BurgerFi business, either the franchisee, or the designated operating partner, should reside within close proximity of the market where the restaurant(s) are operating. It is recommended to be within a 60 minute drive time of the restaurant(s).
Royalties are 5.5% of revenues, a national brand fund contribution of 2.0% and local restaurant marketing of 1.5%.
BurgerFi restaurants range from 1,800 to 2,400 square feet, plus 500 square feet as an outdoor patio/seating area. End cap or free-standing sites with the availability of curbside pick-up are preferred. Some select premium in-line units could be acceptable.
