Five Guys Burgers and Fries USA

Ever heard of a burger restaurant that has no freezer?

Yes, that’s right. No freezer. Every Five Guys burger is made by hand from fresh–never frozen–beef. And their delicious fries? They’re made from fresh cut potatoes and deep fried in cholesterol free peanut oil. Now, doesn’t that sound great?

There are 1,329 Five Guys locations in the USA



I guess today’s modern families are used to “box burgers,” the kind that are sold at most fast-food restaurants. Those burgers are mostly cereal, fat and other fillers. And, let’s not forget the antibiotics, hormones and dangerous bacteria. Yuck!

For those of us who remember real burgers, Five Guys is the natural choice.

First of all, Five Guys beef is never frozen. Second, it’s made of  fresh ground chuck and ground sirloin. And, third, Five Guys does not add anything to the meat. It’s just meat and bun.

Now, if that sounds a little bland for your taste, remember that some folks really like the taste of a naked grilled burger. Bur, for those who want to load it up, there’s a whole smorgasbord of fixings so that you can create your own burger supreme: mayo, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, ketchup, mustard, relish, onions, jalapeno peppers, green peppers, barbecue sauce, hot sauce and A1 sauce.

But, wait, there’s more. Five Guys burgers do not contain pink slime, a cheap filler used to “beef up” many meat products. Pink slime is made by salvaging the meat that gets trimmed off cuts of beef along with fat. Ewww! That sure doesn’t sound healthy.

All of Five Guys’ beef comes from US suppliers who are required to treat the cattle humanely and follow all the procedures set forth by the USDA.

How it all began

Way back in the 1980’s and 1990’s, the Murrell family had a simple system: a fresh burger  with all the toppings, stuffed between freshly baked buns.

In 2003, Jerry and Janie Murrell, together with the “Five Guys” (their five sons), began offering franchise opportunities. Five Guys Enterprises sold options for more than 300 units and they became an overwhelming success, making the national news.

Today, 30 years since Five Guys first opened, there are over 1,300 locations around the world, with another 1,500 units in development.
