Farm Burger, a premier fast-casual burger concept, entered into an investment partnership with Georgia Oak Partners, an Atlanta-based investment firm. Founded in Atlanta in 2010, Farm Burger has locations in Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and California. Farm Burger has distinguished itself by becoming an industry leader in providing locally raised grass-fed beef paired with fresh seasonal ingredients, all prepared from scratch and served with care at accessible prices.
"In looking for a growth partner, it was imperative we found one that would not only add expertise in strategic restaurant growth, but that also shared Farm Burger's values around sustainability and sourcing,” says Jason Mann, co-founder of Farm Burger. “In Georgia Oak, we found a partner with those values right here in our backyard of Atlanta. This partnership will help Farm Burger further realize its vision of connecting communities and farmers through access to great grass-fed beef.”
Georgia Oak's growth equity investment will allow Farm Burger to accelerate its expansion in the Southeast. The Farm Burger partnership is illustrative of Georgia Oak's strategy of investing alongside quality managers of values-driven growth companies. “Farm Burger’s ethos is really in alignment with what Georgia Oak is all about. We are both dedicated to working with local partners to produce superior results,” says Michael Lonergan, managing partner of Georgia Oak Partners. “This investment demonstrates our commitment to providing resources for Georgia-based companies to reach their full potential.”
