Char-Hut products and specialty cooking processes are in very high demand as more people are choosing to spend the extra dollars on higher quality food products and want more from their burgers than ever before. According to US Foods,
“Burger consumption up considerably since 2009, with nearly half of today’s consumers, say they eat a burger at least once a week, compared with fewer than four out of 10 two years ago. This growth is seen across all restaurant segments. Out of all of the top entrée categories, burgers were represented by the greatest number of new items.
Quick-service value menus are certainly a big part of this increase in burger consumption. But the specialty burger craze has also driven growth despite — or perhaps even because of — the higher prices these burgers command. Quick-service chains have begun to respond to the growing demand for premium burgers.”
We provide customers with a comfortable and inviting environment along withmenu items and product lines to create the perfect specialty burger experience. Our franchisees will be successful due to our proven operational methods and effective marketing models. Through superior training, technical guidance and in-territory support, we will help you in building your own Char-Hut business.

- Our brand, business model, and community-oriented approach will help you develop your local market presence and community relationships that will support and build your business.
IS THERE REALLY THAT MUCH OF A BUSINESS FOR BURGERS?
- YES! The Burger Market is growing consistently and has continued to do so since 2001. According to QSR Magazine, “Ironically, some analysts believe the state of the economy is also helping to propel the better-burger trend into the next decade. In general, the quick-service industry endured a love-hate relationship with the recession, as the economy has forced consumers to trade down on their dining options (the love) while also curbing people’s desire to spend money on eating out (the hate). But when it comes to the burger, it may be the best of both worlds.”
