Say hi to BurgerFi

Tuesday, Feb. 11 marks the debut of BurgerFi, a South Florida-rooted fast-casual franchise.

The first of three Philly locations - others are in the works for Drexel and Temple Universities, plus a fourth in the region in Cherry Hill - is in the new Home2 Suites on 12th Street between Arch and Filbert Streets, directly across from Reading Terminal Market. Panera Bread will be a neighbor in March.

BurgerFi has that Shake Shack thing going: humanely raised, antibiotic- and hormone-free beef and such menu items as Wagyu Kobe hot dogs, quinoa burgers, and frozen custard. Menu is here; burgers start at $5.57.

The wide-open interior is clad in yellow pine, which is a renewable wood. Tables are made of pressed, recycled wood, while others are made of recycled #10 cans. Chairs are recycled from old Coca-Cola bottles.
