At Burger King®, we take pride in growing our nationwide network of restaurant owners to include hard-working individuals and families. Our franchising and field teams work diligently to not only prepare our franchisees for success, but also to support them throughout their journey. Our goal is to ensure they have the resources necessary to keep guests coming back for more flame-grilled goodness.
- Gary Moore
Gary Moore was a sophomore in high school in 1982 when he began his career with Burger King®, where he spent two years as an hourly team member at his local restaurant in West Valley City, Utah. In 2005, Gary became a Burger King® franchisee and partner in HB Boys, which operates 60+ restaurants.
- Chris Johnson
Chris Johnson became a Burger King® franchisee in 2013, acquiring six Connecticut restaurants from a 40-year operator. Many of the restaurant’s team members had worked there for a long time, and Chris welcomed the opportunity to foster growth and help employees advance their careers within the brand. Now, Chris and his management company, Rackson Restaurants, operate 65 Burger King® restaurants.
- The Casciano Family
In 1973, Dan and Darlene Casciano, along with their three children, relocated to Traverse City, Michigan, to open their first Burger King® franchise. Since then, the Casciano family has opened five additional Traverse City locations, with sons Mike, Chris, and Dan managing and overseeing construction of the restaurants since the 1980s. In 2020, the family business extended into the third generation when Chris’ son, Blane, became a franchisee.
