BurgerFi's 3Q performance is 'unacceptable,' CEO says

The Florida-based company has closed five underperforming restaurants and more may be shuttered. Meanwhile, chicken is coming to the menu to help turn things around.


Forget popcorn. Soon movie goers can order BurgerFi

The burger chain signed a licensing agreement with a movie theater chain that will allow film watchers to order burgers from their seats.

The Florida-based chain acquired two franchise units and is plotting a return to Manhattan. Also, the fries will be improved.

The lifestyle media maven, who gave the Florida-based company a big name when she joined the board in 2021, quietly stepped down as director last month.

Carl Bachmann will jump from one fast-casual burger chain to the other when he takes over as BurgerFi CEO in July.

Baines plans to stay on as a consultant for another 12 months while a replacement is found. COO John Iannucci will lead as interim.

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

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.
