The old Pat Troy’s and Ireland’s Own location at 111 N. Pitt is going to be a new BurgerFi according to permits submitted to Alexandria Planning and Zoning.
A description of their business model taken from their website at BurgerFi.com follows:
Like many great American tales, ours begins with a hamburger. The all-natural, Black Angus CEO Burger. A fan favorite. Pride and joy of The Office, a gourmet gastropub nestled in the heart of downtown Delray Beach. Sunshine State, USA. And, the inspiration for BURGERFI, launched from dissatisfaction with what was happening in the burger market at the time. Fast food and their lackluster offerings can have profound effects, so a better burger was born: February, 2011.
You see, we don’t adhere to the practices of industrialized fast food giants. We were started in a gourmet kitchen, by gourmet Chefs. They didn’t know from fast food, so the back of the house looks less like a burger joint, more like a five-star restaurant. When we needed a sauce, our Chefs didn’t call a food supplier. They started chopping. Combining. Cooking.
Making better choices. Trying some better.
BURGERFI Sauce, for example, uses over a dozen fresh ingredients. Far from fast, it takes roughly 40 minutes to prepare. Those doing it use words like ‘artful pride’ when speaking of the hard work it takes to make it. That’s just one sauce. You can find this level of better in everything we do.
