The Early Years
Five Guys was founded by the Murrell family in Arlington, Virginia, in 1986. The name “Five Guys” actually comes from the five Murrell brothers, who all worked together in the early days of the business. The brothers were committed to using fresh ingredients, cooking everything to order, and serving up a simple menu of burgers and fries. As word of their delicious food spread, so did the popularity of Five Guys.
Expansion Across North America
In the years that followed, Five Guys continued to expand across the United States, and in 2009, the first Canadian location opened in Ontario. Since then, Five Guys has opened up restaurants in several provinces across the country, including British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Quebec. Each location follows the same simple formula of fresh ingredients, made-to-order food, and a limited menu.
What They’re Known For
So, what exactly is it that makes Five Guys so popular among fast food lovers? For starters, their burgers are made with 100% fresh, never frozen beef, which gives them a juicy, flavorful taste that you just can’t get from frozen patties. Customers can choose from a variety of toppings, from classic options like lettuce, tomato, and cheese, to more unique choices like grilled onions and jalapenos. And of course, no burger is complete without a side of Five Guys’ famous fries. Cut fresh from whole potatoes every day, these fries are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and can be ordered with a variety of seasonings or even topped with cheese and bacon.
In addition to their burgers and fries, Five Guys also offers a range of hot dogs, sandwiches, and milkshakes. And while the menu may be limited compared to some other fast food chains, that’s part of the appeal for many customers. With a focus on quality ingredients and made-to-order food, Five Guys offers a fast food experience that feels a bit more special than your typical burger joint.
From its humble beginnings in Virginia to its expansion across North America, Five Guys has become a beloved fast food chain known for its fresh ingredients, simple menu, and delicious burgers and fries. Whether you’re a longtime fan or trying Five Guys for the first time, you can expect a fast food experience that’s a cut above the rest.
