In 1987, Lattimore M. Michael began serving homemade hamburgers in his Cleveland, Mississippi grocery store. Today, our tasty grilled creations are available in more than a dozen states and more than 75 locations.  Back Yard Burgers is known as the place to go for big and bold flame-grilled variety because each order is custom-made and topped with only the freshest, most flavorful ingredients served straight from the grill. 

Our 100% Black Angus 1/3 LB beef burgers, seasoned and waffle fries, grilled and blackened sandwiches, salads, turkey burgers and handspun milkshakes makes us THE hamburger destination in town.  Today we operate in more than a dozen states, and we are excited about bringing our flame-grilled menu to your backyard by expanding into new markets.

We are looking to further develop current markets in the Southeast as well as develop new territories throughout the United States. If you are interested in International franchise opportunities, please follow the same procedure described below.  We have not yet taken our Tasty Brand to other countries; however, we are considering international markets for the future of Back Yard Burgers. As a Back Yard Burgers franchisee you will have the opportunity to bring that flame kissed fresh burger taste to your own neighborhood, wherever that is!

If you have restaurant, retail or other business management experience, are a motivated and success driven leader that has experience managing entry level employees and financial liquidity of $500,000 and total net worth of $1,000,000, we would love to hear from you.
