Five Guys was founded in 1986 by Janie and Jerry Murrell; Jerry and the couple’s sons, Jim, Matt, Chad, and Ben, were the original “Five Guys.” Now, 30 years after Five Guys first opened, there are almost 1,700 locations worldwide.


At Five Guys, the philosophy is simple: great burgers and fries, crafted in a clean restaurant run by friendly staff. The success of these company pillars depends on our crew members.


Five Guys prides itself on using only the freshest ingredients. We use fresh ground beef, never frozen and only peanut oil. There are no freezers in Five Guys locations, just coolers.
