BurgerFi celebrated its newest fast-casual restaurant in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on October 1.

The restaurant, located at 1235 S. University Avenue, is right in the heart of the University of Michigan area and the first BurgerFi to open in the state. There are more restaurants in development for Michigan in the near future. 

BurgerFi restaurants feature a wide variety of popular all-natural, U.S.-sourced Angus beef burgers made from grass-fed cattle and served with a variety of topping options. The natural Angus is free of antibiotics, hormones, and additives providing a healthier and more flavorful beef for consumers.

The diverse menu options continue with fresh hand cut french fries, onion rings, Kobe beef hot dogs, a made-in-house quinoa veggie burger, freshly prepared custards, concretes, natural cane sugar colas, craft beer selections, wine, and more. 

The more than 4,000-square-foot Ann Arbor location will seat approximately 100 and will feature a full liquor bar with alcohol varieties of its popular dessert concretes. 

“We are excited that our first location in Michigan is in this wonderful college town and look forward to introducing our unique all-natural burger concept to the campus community,” says the company’s director of operations and development, Josh Lorence. “We want this location to become a popular game day destination for locals and visitors to experience.”

Each BurgerFi restaurant is built according to environmentally sustainable best practices and includes earth-friendly elements. Chairs are made from recycled Coke bottles, tables are made out of compressed recycled wood, and large fans use 66 percent less electricity. Protecting and preserving the environment is one of the core values of BurgerFi and the company prides itself on maintaining a low carbon footprint. The chain has strict recycling programs in place for all its oil, cardboard, bottles, and cans at each restaurant location. 

The Ann Arbor BurgerFi operation hours will be 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. daily.
