Latham, NY – BURGERFI, one of the fastest growing better burger concepts, known for its fresh, all-natural burgers, fries and frozen custard, opened to the public today at its newest location at 860 New Loudon Road, Latham. BURGERFI has made its mark with never frozen, grass-fed Angus beef that is free of growth hormones, chemicals and additives. For the first time, with the help of franchise owner Burger Ventures, LLC, those burgers are being made to order here in the Capital Region.
“It’s an exciting time, knowing that we’re introducing our customers to healthier and higher quality alternatives to some of the food they may be used to,” said Bill Lia, Jr., partner, Burger Ventures, LLC. “We’ve got great food and a great atmosphere, and we’re keeping sustainability in mind at the same time.”
Each BURGERFI location is built to reduce its carbon footprint on the environment. Latham is no exception. Tables are constructed using compressed wood, chairs are made from 111 recycled Coke bottles and large fans utilize 66 percent less electricity. The chain has strict recycling programs in place for all its oil, cardboard, bottles, and cans at each restaurant location.
In addition to an assortment of burgers, BURGERFI serves Kobe beef hot dogs, fresh cut fries with an array of toppings, onion rings, homemade frozen custards, craft beer and wine.
“At BURGERFI, we’re putting a modern spin to these classic, American foods,” said Angelo Mazzone, partner, Burger Ventures, LLC. “That modern feel, coupled with the quality of our menu items is what really sets us apart from other restaurants.”
A grand opening celebration at BURGERFI Latham is expected to be held next month. Burger Ventures, LCC is planning to open a second location early next year on Broadway in Saratoga Springs.
