Flamer's Burgers and Chicken

Flamer's Burgers & Chicken story begins in 1987 with a single outlet in Jacksonville, Florida. Like most great success stories, we saw a consumer need and capitalized on it. That need was for high-quality, popular foods prepared fresh and fast in areas of high consumer traffic.

Research and a trip out to eat proves that the hamburger is one of the most popular food items in the entire world and has been for the last 75 years. However, most burgers offered in fast-food environments lack that signature charbroiled taste you can only get from an open flame. That taste, that quality, is the cornerstone of the Flamers offering and what sets us apart.

The next step was simple. We knew that there was a well-established marketing niche in which nothing of this kind was offered - the high-traffic shopping malls, airports, train stations, hospitals and downtown office complexes. So we combined a quality product with this ready-and-waiting market. The result is Flamers Charbroiled Hamburgers and Chicken.

Flamers' recipe for its tremendous success has been combining great food with an easy to use system and high-traffic customer locations. The final ingredient for continued success is YOU!

Oh, and the food, how about crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside, Cajun dusted fresh cut fries with Remoulade dipping sauce? Amazing whole white meat chicken tenders rolled in delectable garlic and parmesan, perhaps with a little black truffle salt? Something a bit more hearty, like a massive pile of fries smothered in slow roasted pulled pork, jalapeños and cheese sauce, where you might add some Ghost Pepper salt (the hottest salt in the world) to give it that extra kick - so good! We have so many vegetarian and healthy options as well, such as a fresh monster baked potato with a bruschetta topping of diced tomatoes, basil, onions and brushed olive oil. There are 30+ other brilliant choices equally as good and more being added all the time. Everything is fresh and made from scratch, offered in a fast casual environment with something that appeals to everyone from the late night partiers to the afternoon yoga group.

Tossed has been widely publicized as a well positioned emerging brand between the salad and sandwich subset of the fast casual segment featuring fresh salads, grilled panini, hot soups, wraps, gourmet sandwiches, catering, and breakfast in certain locations.

Three determined friends, one unique vision: To be the first to bring a fresh SALAD CONCEPT to NYC. Their hard work paid off when their vision came to life as they opened the first Tossed® location. The menu that featured a lineup of chef-designed selections, introduced bored lunchtime crowds to the concept of made-to-order salads, gourmet wraps, grilled Panini, artisanal sandwiches and hot soups; featuring over 50 fresh ingredients and homemade dressings.

Top 100 Movers & Shakers

It was only a matter of time before an investment group along with a franchise development team with years of experience realized the potential of Tossed®. Joining with the founders of the concept, they developed Tossed® Franchise Corporation with a new vision: GROW the concept across the country!


Totally Nutz

Totally Nutz is an exciting new food franchise concept that is taking high-traffic venues by storm. We fresh roast a variety of the most indulgent and delicious nuts that customers are likely to have ever had. With twenty years of recipe development and perfection, our product scores rave reviews wherever we open. For our franchise owners, the opportunity is crazy.

Our investment of just $67K allows franchise owners to open their first cart in venues like sports arenas, convention centers and farmer markets. We award agreements to full-time owners who want to enjoy this fun business year-round, and also to absentee or part-time owners, who want to capitalize on the busy holiday periods, and then take more time to vacation with family. Our item 19 shows gross revenues of just over $100K, with net income of $78K, and here’s the best part: from just two months of operation (holiday model)!

Two different business models:

Totally Nutz offers two business models. The first option is a venue package with the total investment ranging from approximately $65 K to $75 K. This is our mobile option for venues like fairs, arts festivals, or farmers markets. The venue package is portable enough to be transported to most special event sites.

The second option is a kiosk package with a total investment ranging from approximately $75K to $85K. This is our more semi-permanent set-up. Ideal for mall locations, stadiums, or consecutive event locations, like sporting events.

  • Low investment ($67K +)
  • Highly scalable (add additional units for $20K per cart, $40K per kiosk)
  • High returns (item 19 net income of $78K in two months)
  • FUN – operate at major sporting arenas, concerts, festivals or wherever you and your family like
  • Family oriented: Founders built business alongside their children. Involved at all steps
  • Snacks: In high-traffic venues are recession-proof, high demand products. Lower risk investment.
  • Do it full-time with multiple units and create an empire, or keep the operation small, part-time, seasonal or off-site.
  • Flexible: Work hard over the holidays, and then enjoy months of vacation like some of our owners. You pick when and where you work.
