BurgerFi International officially unveiled their new state of the art food truck ("Fi on the Fly") during the iconic Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SOBEWFF ). As the exclusive brand in the burger category, the truck made its debut at Bacardi's Best of the Fest hosted by Andrew Zimmern on Sunday, May 23rd. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, to date the festival has raised $31.8m for the Florida International University Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management, and Southern Wine & Spirits Beverage Management Center.
The chef-founded concept will now be able to take its award-winning favorites on the road with "Fi on the Fly®" to expand its legion of Fi-natic by serving private parties, corporate events, charitable fundraisers, birthdays, weddings, cultural and sporting events, musical festivals, food truck events and more throughout the South Florida area.
"With the slew of awards we've won recently, BurgerFi is on a roll. Not just figuratively but now literally, with our state of the art, mobile kitchen and crowd pleaser serving up our fresh all-natural favorites. It's a great way to reach more people beyond our existing locations and participate in community events where guests can sample our amazing all-natural, premium burgers without antibiotics, hormones or steroids, our fresh-cut fries with gourmet sauces, award-winning VegeFi and better than ice cream custard shakes and concretes and more. 'Fi on the Fly' will be perfect for corporate events, private parties and any event that you'll want to plus-up with an amazing food experience," says Julio Ramirez, CEO of BurgerFi. "It's an extension of the brand as we continue to grow and reach people anywhere and any way they want to experience BurgerFi."
The 34' extra-long truck features a bluetooth stereo system, green LED trim lighting, a customizable menu board screen and is artfully wrapped in all things BurgerFi.
BurgerFi's food truck will offer the better-burger brands' most beloved menu items, including the BurgerFi Cheeseburger, VegeFi Burger, fresh-cut fries and onion rings and custard shakes, to name a few. While the food truck's home-base will be in South Florida (Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County), the concept is available for booking across the entire state of Florida for an additional fee. Private party packages start at $2,500 and every event is customizable.
For those wanting to book "Fi on the Fly" please send a request via BurgerFi's website at www.burgerfi.com/foodtruck which will direct guests to fill out a form noting location, time and type of event. With the ability to function as a fully catered experience, the host of the event will work closely with the BurgerFi food truck specialist on crafting a customized menu for any special occasion. The food truck is able to serve between 80 to 100 guests per hour and up to 300+ guests.
