Leading Organic Burger Franchise Goes Bi-Coastal with Five New CA Locations

New York Phenomenon, Burger Village, Expands to West CoastNew York, NY  (Restaurant News Release) Burger Village, the New York-based chain with full-service restaurants in Great Neck and Hicksville, Long Island, and Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York, and plans for QSR locations in Farmingdale, Long Island, and downtown Brooklyn, New York has just signed a multi-unit franchise agreement in California. Known for its healthy take on America’s favorite food: the hamburger, Burger Village, and its organic, all-natural, antibiotics and hormone free menu, will open a full-service restaurant in San Luis Obispo, California in Spring 2019. Four additional quick service locations are planned for Dublin, Sunnyvale, San Jose, and Palo Alto later in the year. Franchises are scalable and available as both full-service or quick service restaurant formats.

“California is a natural extension for the Burger Village brand,” says Nick Yadav, one four brothers who launched Burger Village in 2013. “The same healthy and busy lifestyle found in New York is exemplified in California. The Burger Village motto to “eat organic, live healthy” is also a mantra for the majority of west coast diners.”

The Burger Village menu offers USDA certified organic hamburgers and exotic meats (such as bison, elk and boar), salads, wraps, fresh cut fries, onion rings, organic milkshakes and sodas, organic beers and wines, desserts, gluten-free and vegan options, and other natural foods. The Brand Ambassador for the chain is football All-American, Prince Amukamara, cornerback of the Chicago Bears of the National Football league (NFL). Amukamara is both a fan and an investor, with plans to open his own Burger Village franchise in the coming year.

As a loyal customer in their Park Slope Brooklyn location, Amukamara was a fan of the food at Burger Village, but also admired the way the brothers did business and their strong family values. “At Burger Village, they believe in organic in a way that benefits the consumer and the planet.” The NFL star adds, “Burger Village products come from farms and dairies that are mostly family owned and operated. The livestock and produces are nourished and cared for naturally and humanely.” He adds, “Burger Village has taken an American staple, the burger, and made it guilt-free, good for you, and good for the environment.”

Burger Village has teamed with franchise industry expert, Gary Occhiogrosso, the founder of Franchise Growth Solutions, LLC, to expand the turnkey Burger Village fast casual QSR (quick service restaurant) business model from eleven (11) in 2019 to twenty-five (25) locations by 2021.
