Hero Certified Burgers is a Canadian restaurant chain franchise that sells hamburgers and other quick service restaurant fare.[1][2] It is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and was founded in 2004.[3] It had almost 60 locations as of March 2017,[4] and opened its first store in the United States in 2015 in Elmwood Village, Buffalo, New York.[5][6][7] The Buffalo location closed at the end of 2016.[8][9] The company uses sustainably-sourced beef.[1] The chain serves Cavendish Farms branded french fries from Prince Edward Island. The restaurant locations have Coca-Cola Freestyle machines on site.

The chain was founded in 2004 by John Lettieri, who opened the first store in Hazelton Lanes in Yorkville.[10] Lettieri also owns the restaurant chain Lettieri café, based in Toronto.[10] The company was the first Canadian franchise to focus on the provision of fast foods using food products from vendors that adhere to sustainable practices.[10]
