The brainchild of serial entrepreneur, Yossi Eliyahoo, this stylish, urban, fast-casual franchise already has some industry-leading locations already thriving in locations such as Berlin, Ibiza, The Hague, Manchester and of course, the flagship restaurants in Amsterdam.

Post-lockdown research shows that burgers are one of the top three most ordered items on any menu, that 70% of consumers are willing to pay for a more premium burger option and that almost 60% of consumers are willing to pay to upgrade their burger in some way.

Using its unique burger recipe and specialist ingredients, THE BUTCHER is best positioned to benefit from the trend towards premium burgers: THE BUTCHER only puts together the most creative, best-tasting burgers, featuring quality, locally-sourced fresh vegetables, its special signature sauce, its homemade semi-brioche bun, and the best, leanest meats around. THE BUTCHER is also proud of its own popular take on vegan burgers. With so much success already pouring in through the door, it’s easy to see how this franchise has quickly become a leading player in this competitive market.
