BurgerFi Debuts Gourmet CEO Burger, and “Promotes” It to the Top of Its Menu

One of the nation’s fastest growing burger chains reinvents its own iconic creation

BurgerFi, one the nation’s fastest growing fast casual restaurant chains announces the debut of their CEO Burger - the newest gourmet sensation in the better burger craze. Burger lovers across the nation will be able to relish this iconic creation beginning on June 27th, when the CEO Burger gets a permanent spot on the BurgerFi menu.

The CEO Burger features two Wagyu + brisket blend beef patties. It is then layered with savory aged Swiss cheese, topped with homemade candied bacon-tomato jam and finished off with a garlic truffle aioli sauce before being sandwiched between two all-natural potato buns. All BurgerFi burgers are antibiotic-free and made from humanely-raised cows.

“The ingredients in the CEO Burger take our savory, juicy burger to new heights.” said Paul Griffin, the executive chef at BurgerFi. “We believe we have built a burger that is the big boss of the burger world featuring new and innovative flavors, destined for the corner office of American palates.”

BurgerFi’s latest menu addition joins a variety of other made-in-house menu favorites including the VegeFi burger, Vienna and Kobe-style hot dogs, hand-cut fresh fries and onion rings, frozen custard, and natural sugar cane sodas.

“From its inception the CEO Burger has been a hit with better burger lovers,” said BurgerFi CEO Corey Winograd. “I like to think that it’s really a burger fit for the CEO in all of us.”

Established in 2011, BurgerFi is among the nation’s fastest-growing better burger concepts with a projected 100 restaurants to be open by the end of 2016. The concept was founded by gourmet chefs committed to serving fresh food of the highest quality. All recipes are created from natural, fresh ingredients that require team members to cut chop, mix and prepare daily. BurgerFi uses only 100% natural Angus beef patties with no steroids, antibiotics, growth hormones, chemicals or additives.
