Company Description

Five Guys is a fast-casual chain focusing specifically on burgers and fries. Originating in Washington, D.C., the restaurant is known for using fresh beef and frying its food in only peanut oil.

Founded in 1986 in Arlington, Virginia, by the Murrell family, the company now has locations worldwide including in the U.K. and the Middle East.

Just over half of Five Guys’ locations are franchised. Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal also owns about 10 percent of the company’s franchise portfolio.
