Most U.S. mainland residents have never been to a Teddy’s Bigger Burgers; those who have probably visited while on vacation. But that may soon change, as the Hawaii-based burger joint now has two mainland units and is poised for additional growth.
After the first Teddy’s opened in Honolulu in 1998, the brand grew slowly, adding two more stores in Hawaii by the end of 2003. Teddy’s started franchising in 2005 and now has five franchised stores—two in Hawaii and one each in Washington State, Iowa, and Japan.
Our Guiding Principles revolve around one burger, one customer, and one experience.
The result is that of a company that approaches modern trends and concepts, through basic business values: Listen to our customers, listen to our employees and be dedicated equally to both. Nothing complicated in design, execution of product or policy. We satisfy our guest’s needs by serving a pure burger and we satisfy our employee’s needs by being coaches and mentors, not bosses.
The passion and commitment behind the principle beliefs that guide Teddy’s Bigger Burgers will not only serve generations to come, but also perpetuate the values and work ethic that produce great leaders and industry giants.
