Five Guys is a no-frills burger joint that focuses on serving burgers and fries in a clean, friendly environment. The commitment to sourcing quality ingredients and delivering a consistently great experience is one of its key differentiators.
Five Guys began in 1986 when Jerry and Janie Murrell offered sage advice to their four sons: "Start a business or go to college." The boys chose business, and the Murrell family soon opened a burger joint in Arlington, Va. Now, more than 30 years later, there are over 1,500 locations globally.
Five Guys is the leader in the Fast Casual Burger segment and has built its brand by focusing on freshness and quality. With no freezers and no microwaves, it’s built on the premise that all burgers and fries are to be made fresh every day. The bread, which is a Five Guys’ proprietary item, is baked fresh in a local bakery. Potatoes are cut fresh daily, soaked to remove the starch and double-fried in pure, no cholesterol, 100% peanut oil to create the firm exterior and fluffy ‘mashed-potato’ interior that Five Guys fries are known for.
