A gourmet burger restaurant is coming to the Beaumont development in Wildwood.
The 2,146-square-foot BurgerFi restaurant will be located at 5295 Sundance Trail at the rapidly growing development on County Road 466A across from Pinellas Plaza in The Villages.
BurgerFi bills itself “among the nation’s fastest-growing better burger concepts with approximately 125 BurgerFi restaurants domestically and internationally.” The restaurant chain was founded in 2011.
BurgerFi uses 100 percent natural American Angus beef with no steroids, antibiotics, growth hormones, chemicals or additives. The menu also include the made-in-house gourmet veggie burger VegeFi, Wagyu beef hot dogs with all the fixings, frozen custard, and local craft beer and wine.
An elevation included in the BurgerFi plans has revealed that a Huey Magoo’s restaurant, with a drive-through lane, will be located in the same building as the BurgerFi restaurant at the Beaumont development. A Huey Magoo’s restaurant opened in 2020 at Lady Lake Commons.
BurgerFi placed in the top 10 on Fast Casual’s Top 100 Movers & Shakers list in 2020, was named “Best Burger Joint” by Consumer Reports and fellow public interest organizations in the 2019 Chain Reaction Study, listed as a “Top Restaurant Brand to Watch” by Nation’s Restaurant News in 2019, included in Inc. Magazine’s Fastest Growing Private Companies List, and ranked on Entrepreneur’s 2017 Franchise 500.
A Culver’s restaurant is also going in at the Beaumont development. It is expected to be completed in May.
