Gopuff will serve the brand’s burgers and fries from its network of kitchens as it moves further into the restaurant business.

At BurgerFi, self-service kiosks are boosting check size—and tips

The new technology has also allowed the chain to reallocate cashiers to the dining room.

The two chains said they are starting to see some efficiencies after joining forces last year, but development was slowed by COVID.

The operator on Monday said its new chief people officer, chief development officer and chief legal officer would work for both the fast-casual burger chain and the newly acquired Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza & Wings full-service concept.

The fast casual is experimenting with robots, self-ordering kiosks and more to battle labor pressures facing the industry.

The better-burger brand had planned to open up to 30 new restaurants this year. On Thursday, the fast casual revised that estimate to 18 new stores.

Ian Baines will become the CEO of BurgerFi once the deal is closed while the private equity firm L Catterton will become one of its largest shareholders.

Ross Goldstein had been with the fast-casual burger chain for nine years. He receives 7,500 shares of BurgerFi stock as part of his exit package.

The newly public fast-casual chain said it plans to open 15 to 20 delivery-only outlets this year.

BurgerFi has completed its C-suite, announcing the addition of Karl Goodhew as chief technology officer Tuesday—a new role for the chain.
