About Fresh Burger:

Fresh Burger is located on 9206 Leslie St., Richmond Hill, Ontario. This burger joint is ranked on the #1 spot of all quick bites places in Richmond Hill, and with good reason. It serves the classic beef burger only and no extra pomp.

The Fresh Burger has spread to several locations in the Greater Toronto Area beginning with Richmond Hill, spreading to two locations in Toronto, following Vaughan and North York. The Richmond Hill location is the home base, and it has a private parking lot, bike parking, free WIFI, and a very casual dining atmosphere. It is a good place to take your kids for a quality fast-food meal and go for a burger with your friends.

It serves lunch and dinner, opening its doors every day at 11 AM and closing time is at 8 PM, except for Sunday when working hours are 12 PM to 7 PM. It does not take seating reservations at the restaurant but takes orders through their website that need to be picked up, and through the Skip the Dishes, Uber Eats, and DoorDash apps that deliver to your door.

The Fresh Burger is the effort of a certain Jacques Kavafian, who after a 30-year career in finance, decided to make burgers. He opened the first Fresh Burger in 2013 and after a glowing success, spread the business in several locations across the GTA.

The original Richmond Hill location has doubled its size since its early days to accommodate all customers. This burger joint is very simply decorated, with cream and grey walls, exposed ductwork ceiling, open concept kitchen, and simple tables and chairs.

The menu is very limited – four burgers only, in different sizes: 4 oz, 6 oz, 8 oz, and 12 oz. All the burgers come with cheese, lettuce, tomato, and their Fresh Burger sauce. There are extra toppings to choose from: bacon, caramelised onions, mushrooms, sautéed jalapeños, and provolone, cheddar or Swiss cheese. You get to pick between their hand-cut fresh fries or poutine, and you can ask for onions and pickles.

The owner learned after travelling the world that the best food is served in places with a limited menu that keeps it simple, sparking the idea of opening his own burger place, as the traditional hamburger happens to be his favourite dish. Fresh Burger is a straightforward burger joint without the fancy interior, serving only the classic beef burger, as many people have testified online.
