These 50 outlets are both company owned and operated as well as franchise owned and operated.[1][2][3][4][1]

Childhood friends and Co-founders Kabir Jeet Singh and Nitin Rana opened the first Burger Singh outlet at Suncity business towers in Gurgaon on 1st November 2014. Kabir Jeet Singh first got the idea for Burger Singh when he was studying at the University of Birmingham. Like many other Indian students studying abroad, he worked part time in a burger joint. Noticing the mundane flavours of the burgers, he began adding Indian spices to his burger patties. These burgers became increasingly popular among his peers which got him the label ‘Burger Singh’.[13][3][4]

After his graduation he moved on to work at a multinational company, but the idea of starting his own burger chain always lingered in his mind. Within the first 1st year of starting, Burger Singh opened another 2 outlets in Gurgaon and further went onto expanding to Delhi NCR and then to North and West India. Burger Singh started franchising in 2017.[14][15][1][6]

Kabir jeet Singh studied at the University of Birmingham and subsequently at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. It was during his time in the UK, while he was working part time at a burger shop . He experimented with various recipes for burgers with Indian spices . These eventually became a crowd favorite and therefore he was christened Burger Singh by the patrons . This is where the idea of Burger Singh came about . Kabir was in the startup team of The La Casera Company (TLCC) which is now the third largest beverage manufacturer after coke and pepsi in west africa's . He was also a part of the startup team of The Beer Café which was founded in 2012 has been one of the fastest growing alco-beverage chains in India.[16][17]

Nitin Rana has close to a decade and a half of experience in the QSR industry. He has worked with some of the most popular chains in the country like KFC, Pizza Hut and TGI Fridays. At Burger Singh, Rana takes care of running operations.[18]

Rahul Seth joined Kabir and Nitin as a co-founder. He majored in computer Science from the Edith Cowan University, Australia. Before Burger Singh he primarily worked with Japanese firms, by providing them market knowledge about the Indian market. At Burger Singh, Seth manages marketing and tech.[19]

Sanchit Mehta holds a 5 year law degree BA.LL.B from Fergusson University in Pune. Over the past decade, he has worked with various start-ups in departments like HR, legal, finance, operations etc. At Burger Singh, Mehta holds the position of VP finance.[20]
