We want to start off by saying thank you to all of our customers. Through out the 40+ years of being in business we have had some obstacles to overcome. Some of you may remember the small fire we had when the wiring on our fryers caused a spark and set our fryers a blaze, or when a vehicle crashed through our store, and when we all went through the pandemic of Covid-19. We truly are blessed with an amazing community that came through our drive through and parked in our fully curbside parking lot during the major shut down. The most recent obstacle being the road construction in front of our store. We want to thank our customers for going through the rocky terrain or finding alternative routes to get to us. You guys have supported us through it all and we are very thankful for that. To learn more about our story and business continue reading below.
One of the things that makes Burgers Etc truly special are our one-of-a-kind Saddle Chairs! Not only do they add a touch of whimsy to our cozy dining area, but they're also incredibly comfortable and bring a smile to everyone's face.
Throughout the decades, Burgers Etc has consistently supported good causes and fun events throughout Rupert and Mini-Cassia. We're proud to be part of such an amazing community and serve and volunteer where we can. Thank you for helping us make this support possible. When you eat local, you're supporting your community.
Roger and Sindy raised four children, have 11 beautiful grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren in the town of Rupert, a community they love. They have been in the fast food business for about 50 years and have owned the Rupert Burger's Etc for 43+ years. Sindy started her way in the fast food industry at the age of 16 and has been in it ever since. Roger started in the fast food industry in 1974 as a manager at a different fast food company.
When Roger and Sindy first came to Rupert they didn't know anyone or anything about this small town, but through the love and support of the community, this area became the place they called their forever home.
Sindy and Roger have been part of many community activities and volunteer work, including the Rupert Christmas Lighting Committee. Throughout the years they have loved watching the local school sports teams.
Burgers Etc is not a franchise! Roger and Sindy had a wonderful partner, Merlin Howard, in Rupert but in January of 2004, Roger and Sindy bought out their partner's portion and became the sole owners. The Burley Burgers Etc was also owned by Roger and Sindy from 1983 to 2004. In January 2004, Tom Burton, bought Roger and Sindy's portion of the Burley Burgers Etc. Tom was actually an employee at the Rupert location in his high school who learned the skills needed to eventually own and operate the Burley Burgers Etc.
Please remember, we are not a franchise, so the money spent here stays in our Rupert community. Roger and Sindy love and care about their employees and try to build great relationships with their employees and hope that they feel like family. It has been an amazing opportunity to watch our employees from the past, present, and future grow in their lives with their own families and careers. To the customers who shop local and dine with us, thank you for your support. We really appreciate you. Please forgive our mistakes and accept our apology. Thanks for supporting local through Burgers Etc.
Back in 1924, an inventive and entrepreneurial young man named Don Carlos Edwards put up a tiny refreshment stand during a Pioneer Day celebration in a small Northern Utah town. Although he didn’t know it then, that stand was the beginning of a fast food chain. Pictured: Arctic Circle on Hwy 30/24 where Burger's Etc. currently stands.
