Burger Time is a regional chain of drive-through fast food restaurants that is headquartered in West Fargo, North Dakota. Its original restaurant was founded in Fargo, North Dakota in 1987 and currently has nine locations in North Dakota, Minnesota and in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Burger Time's first location opened in Fargo, North Dakota in August 1987, and it quickly opened more locations upon its initial success. The company was initially privately owned. Doug Geeslin, a Fargo-based investor, purchased the company from its founder. In 2004, Sten Corporation, a medical devices company, purchased Burger Time from Geeslin. On April 29, 2007, Sten sold Burger Time to BTND LLC, a Colorado limited liability company owned by Burger Time President and accepted all liabilities.
Burger Time primarily operates outdoor restaurants which offer only drive-through or walk up service. Most restaurants offer two drive through lanes (one on each side, so the left side is typically used by vehicles with someone sitting in the front seat). There is typically an outdoor seating area available as well as extra parking for customers who wish to eat in their vehicles.
Burger Time offers hamburgers, french fries, soft drinks, and other typical fast food fare, sold in combinations or a la carte. Their signature item is the "Bigger Burger", a 1/3 pound flame broiled burger. Burger Time also offers barbecue pulled pork and chicken sandwiches as well as apple pie. The "Bigger Burger" combo accounts for 80% of a typical location's sales.
Burger Time uses the slogans "It's Burgertime!", and "More good food for the money". Their "Bigger Burger" is advertised as being larger than that of their competitors, while being sold at a less expensive price.
