BurgerFi International, Inc. and casual dining pizza brand Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza & Wings opened their first-ever co-branded restaurant in Kissimmee, Fla. The Kissimmee co-branded location offers dine-in, takeout and online ordering for pickup or delivery.

This announcement follows BurgerFi's acquisition of Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza & Wings in November 2021.

This new location also signifies the inaugural franchise site for Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza & Wings. The new location is owned and operated by franchisee NDM Hospitality, one of the original franchisees for BurgerFi and the first franchisee of Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza.

“Our dual-brand strategy perfectly addresses this demand, showcasing our commitment to innovation and customer-centricity,” says Carl Bachmann, CEO for BurgerFi International. “It highlights the versatility of our footprint and optimizes operations, facilities and real estate, potentially expanding to BurgerFi locations. This dual-branded approach enables existing franchisees to diversify within the same parent company, fostering growth and synergy.”
