Farm Burger Brings Locally Sourced, Grassfed Beef Burgers to New Town Center Location

Published

Farm Burger Peachtree Corners

Grassfed burger restaurant Farm Burger has opened in Peachtree Corners’ Town Center at 5170 Town Center Blvd. The “ethical burger” restaurant group offers high-quality, locally sourced ingredients, including 100 percent grassfed, grass-finished beef burgers, as well as chicken burgers, vegan offerings, farm-fresh salads and more.

The Peachtree Corners Town Center location is Farm Burger’s sixth restaurant in Georgia, joining locations in Decatur, Dunwoody, Buckhead, Grant Park and inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The fast-casual eatery also has restaurants in Alabama, California, North Carolina and Tennessee, bringing the brand’s total footprint to 13 locations across five states.

“In true Farm Burger fashion, we have grown organically since opening our first Decatur store in 2010,” said George Frangos, co-founder of Farm Burger. “We don’t have a copy-paste growth model. For us, it’s about establishing roots, cultivating relationships and nourishing community in every market we call home. We have wanted to bring Farm Burger to Peachtree Corners for a while and are thrilled to open in a thriving new development like Town Center. We are excited to share the Farm Burger experience with this community and the surrounding areas.”

As part of the opening, Farm Burger partnered with Norcross High School to raise money for the Norcross High School Foundation for Excellence during its private Friends & Family preview events. A registered 501c3, the Foundation helps to bridge the gap between state and county funding and ensures the success of all Norcross High School students through academics, arts and athletics.

Founded in 2010 by organic rancher Jason Mann and seasoned restaurateur George Frangos, Farm Burger is an ethical burger restaurant group committed to leading the fast-casual industry in forging a sustainable food future. Farm Burger crafts 100 percent grassfed, grass-finished beef burgers, dry-aged and ground fresh, as well as other locally sourced menu items, with an emphasis on in-house production of cured meats, pickles, sauces, jams and preserves.

“At Farm Burger, we believe that good food begins on the farm,” Mann said. “Our goal has always been to reroute the traditional supply system to function less like a corporation and more like an ecosystem. Farm Burger exists as the crosspoint between consumers and farmers to educate communities on where their food comes from and why it matters. Our cattle are fattened and finished on sweet grass, never fed antibiotics or growth hormones, and always humanely raised and handled. Our menu is simple but thoughtful, crafted by chefs who want to honor the integrity of ingredients. We’re grateful for the opportunity to support farmers across the state of Georgia, and here in Peachtree Corners.”

In addition to in-house dining, Farm Burger has a number of catering options to accommodate parties big and small. From fresh deliveries to 100 percent grass-fed beef burgers grilled on site, the restaurant’s event coordinators work to create customized spreads for every occasion. Farm Burger also offers a loyalty app, which allows customers to order ahead, earn rewards and invite friends to join the Farm Burger community.

Farm Burger Peachtree Corners is located at 5170 Town Center Blvd, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092.
