The highest-ranking of the six burger concepts on the list, BurgerFi (short for “Burgerfication of the Nation”) traces its roots to the casual side of fast casual. A Florida gastropub called The Office had a hit with an Angus burger. Proprietor John Rosatti decided to build a concept around it, carrying over the use of ingredients perceived as natural and high quality. BurgerFi is a segment pioneer in offering wines and craft beers, another reflection of its parentage. To stay ahead of the pack, BurgerFi launched a top-to-bottom brand exploration this year.
