About Burger Buckets

The diverse backgrounds and unique skill sets of the Burger Buckets management team first came together in 2013.  The business started as Fudge Buckets, a shop developed by Gary and Michelle Easton that sold fresh fudge in St. Augustine, FL.  Eventually, the menu evolved to focus on burgers and Burger Buckets was born.  Gary and Michelle have since built processes, policies, standards, and a vibrant menu of 12 different delicious burgers.  With the knowledge and operational experience gained from this venture, Burger Buckets’ next project is to expand the business via franchising.

The system itself is well positioned and poised for growth with a proven track record and a highly experienced operations and management team.  The business model is reasonably simple for someone with a foodservice background.  All of the food is sourced from quality national and regional suppliers with potential for economies of scale as we grow the business.  The vision and business objectives are derived from the current Management Team’s vast experience and business acumen in multiple industries.

The concept fits very well into today’s franchise marketplace. It is a full service business model that allows for a reasonable and wide range of initial investment options, as each franchisee will be responsible for their own site selection and build-out, with help from the Franchisor.  A franchisee can get into the business with all the required initial inventory and equipment – all for under $250,000 (we will be keen on making sure they will be suitably capitalized). The business can be highly profitable and is a flexible and scalable business model, which would allow for a franchisee to add revenue and profitability  as appropriate to operational capabilities and market size.

The franchise management company (presumably, Burger Buckets Franchising, LLC) will be based out of St. Augustine, which will be wholly owned by current Management Team, along with the company owned unit (owned by a separate entity, Fudge Buckets, LLC).  This corporate unit in St. Augustine will be used as the operating flagship for operations and as a prototype for the business model. We will use this unit as the benchmark for our expansion and will focus growth into select Southeastern U.S. markets initially.

Through franchise development, Burger Buckets will have the ability to operate locations in new markets without the cost and management responsibilities that would come with additional company-owned territories.  Because of the attractive potential return on investment, franchise development holds enormous potential. By franchising the brand and establishing the ability to deliver this amazing burger experience on a national basis, Burger Buckets will have the ability to be valued much higher than a chain of company owned units.
