Founded in early 2018, the founders Kabir Bose, Vivek Prakash and Viraaj Badhwar decided to use their individual expertise to create the quintessential cheeseburger experience they craved for. A strong combination of their expertise and skills learnt through their years in the corporate sector such as management, business expansion, operations and finances alongside immense passion led to the launch of Burgerma's first outlet in October, 2018, said a statement.
"A burger lover's haven, Burgerama is the first Indian brand to recreate the quintessential, crave-worthy American cheeseburger experience. Being focused on consistency, hygiene and reduction of order preparation time has allowed us to grow our business by more than five times over the pandemic. This second round of funding from Anicut Angel Fund displays the confidence our investors have shown in the vision of expanding our business across the country and beyond," said Kabir, co-founder and CEO, Burgerama.
"Since the beginning of Burgerama, the founders have stuck to the core mission of consistently delivering excellent, flavourful burgers and sides in a clean, system driven and highly scalable manner. With the changing Indian customer's taste palette and preferences for an international food and dining experience, Burgerama is strategically placed and aligned with the present consumer demands and will definitely make its space in the F&B industry," said Ashvin Chadha, co-founder and managing partner, Anicut Capital.
The brand has more than four kitchen outlets in Delhi NCR serving authentic classic cheeseburgers in eco-friendly and biodegradable packaging.
