Best Burger Franchise in America

Some things just never go out of style. Like rock n’ roll. Like the Super Bowl. Like going out for a burger, fries and ice cream on a Friday night. These iconic classics are at the heart of what it means to live in America.

70  Years  of  Sunshine  &  Happiness

In  1946,  George  Foster  began  selling  his  proprietary  soft-serve  ice  cream  in  Inglewood,  California.

Since then, Fosters Freeze has become synonymous with easy-breezy West Coast culture, making its mark on the pop-culture scene and serving as a timeless backdrop for everything associated with classic, California-style cool.

Carry on the tradition of satisfying the American craving for good food by opening the best fast food franchise to hit the West Coast. We’ve built a California legacy that has stood the test of time since 1946 and are eager to share our burger franchise with qualified candidates. Could that be you?
