Expansion beckons: Burger House Group shareholders benefit from FalkenSteg advice

On 7 March 2019, a consortium of regional investors will be acquiring a majority stake in the Burger House Group, working within the existing franchise system to systematically develop and grow the firm that blazed a trail for the better-burger trend in Munich and southern Germany. Since 2014, the Burger House brand has embodied high quality and outstanding food service. The chain operates three company-owned restaurants in Munich and ten franchise restaurants in locations such as Stuttgart, Ludwigsburg and Kuwait.

The former shareholders and the company’s founder have decided to focus on running one of the restaurants while working together with the new management to help boost the brand’s restaurant concept and update its menu.

The investors’ strong links to the southern German property market will create significant new potential for the Burger House Group to develop and expand. The first steps in this direction have already been taken with the opening of another restaurant close to Munich’s famous Theresienwiese fairground.

About Burger House
Since its founding in 2014, the Burger House Group has developed into one of the fastest-growing food service chains in southern Germany. Its consistent focus on the quality of its basic ingredients and close cooperation with producers have helped Burger House to establish a strong brand as a pioneer of the “better-burger” movement in the Greater Munich region. Operating with a franchise concept, the group experienced growth in the following years, surpassing the fifteen-restaurant mark in Germany and setting up two international outlets in the Persian Gulf region.
