The first new BurgerFi branch of 2023 has opened at Newark Liberty International Airport, where it will operate seven days a week.
The new restaurant will serve 100% all-natural beef and crispy fries, along with the VegeFi Burger (a spin on a veggie burger), the CEO, a premium burger made with American Wagyu Beef, and Frozen Custard Shakes.
"With travellers looking for a quick bite to eat before taking off to their destination, BurgerFi provides the ideal grab-and-go options," said Ophir Sternberg, executive chairman of BurgerFi International. "BurgerFi's flexible footprint model makes airport locations ideal for introducing the brand to a wider audience – particularly one that values convenience without sacrificing quality."
BurgerFi is strengthening its presence in airports across the country. It is currently operating in Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Buffalo Niagara International Airport, Jacksonville International Airport and Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Additional projected airport openings in 2023 include a second location in Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
"Exposure in airports substantially increases brand awareness with the thousands of travellers passing by the footprint daily," said , vice president of franchise and business development at BurgerFi International.
