BGR The Burger Joint

BGR sits alone at the top - in the 'best burger' niche - as we continue to separate from the 'better burger' crowd. We have awards from around the country to back up that claim - including coming in 3rd at the U.S. Word Food Championships, competing against chefs - while other better burger concepts did not dare to enter. We will compete against any burger - any place - any time!

BGR The Burger Joint Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022



BGR The Burger Joint is not your average burger restaurant. We are a fast-casual gourmet hamburger restaurant offering a unique menu selection of world-class burgers, fries and more, all in a unique and appealing environment. All our food is prepared to order. Everyone claims to have the best food in the business; but our burgers are so good, we've won numerous awards nationally and internationally.



We have no desire to be the franchise with the highest number of stores across the US. Our commitment is to finding and having the BEST:

  • The BEST locations
  • The BEST franchisees.

The reason our customers continue to come back, and wait in long lines for our food, is about more than eating a great meal. It's about our connection to their emotions, via our stores, our decor, our music and our commitment to share lasting memories with our customers.
