“Momentum is on our side”

BurgerFi, the North Palm Beach, Fla.-based better-for-you burger brand is coming to an airport and Air Force base near you. 

“Non-traditional is an obvious next step for us,” said Charlie Guzzetta, chief brand development officer for BurgerFi, on the NRN Extra Serving Podcast. “It’s something that we view as a major growth vehicle for BurgerFi and the future of Burgerfi.”

BurgerFi can offer hands on help to its franchisees and partners and has the flexibility to shapeshift to the needs of different spaces and their customers, said Guzzetta. BurgerFi currently has 125 locations.

“Consumer trends are changing, people are looking for healthier, higher quality gourmet ingredients but in that fast casual or QSR type of environment,” he said. “And that’s really what BurgerFi is able to offer. We’re offering that classic American meal that comfort meal that everybody loves and wants to indulge in.”

The brand serves American Black Angus beef never exposed to steroids, antibiotics, growth hormones, chemicals or additives. 

And they’ll soon be serving their burgers at a lot more locations. They’ve recently inked a deal with the Air Force to open numerous locations and opened in Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International and Raleigh-Durham International Airports with two more airport locations in the works.  

“Momentum is on our side,” said Guzzetta.
