Ready to hit the road, the chef-founded concept will now be able to take its award-winning favorites across South Florida as it expands its services by serving private parties, corporate events, charitable fundraisers, birthdays, weddings, cultural and sporting events, musical festivals, food truck events, and more. 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.
The 34-foot-long truck features a bluetooth stereo system, green LED trim lighting, a customizable menu board screen, and is artfully wrapped in all things BurgerFi. Inside, BurgerFi's kitchen-on-wheels will offer the burger brand's most beloved menu items, including the BurgerFi Cheeseburger, VegeFi Burger, fresh-cut fries and onion rings, and custard shakes.
"With the slew of awards we've won recently, BurgerFi is on a roll," said Julio Ramirez, CEO of BurgerFi. "Not just figuratively, but now literally. 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 and more."
