Five Guys has been a Washington, DC area favorite since 1986 when Jerry and Janie Murrell offered sage advice to the four young Murrell brothers: "Start a business or go to college”. The business route won and the Murrell family opened a carry-out burger joint in Arlington, Virginia. Under the guidance of Jerry and Janie, the Murrell family served only hand-formed burgers cooked to perfection on a grill along with fresh-cut fries cooked in pure peanut oil. The little burger joint quickly developed a cult-like following. During the 1980's and 1990's the Murrell family perfected their simple system. Five Guys was The Place to get a fresh, juicy burger with all the toppings you could stuff between fresh-baked buns. A fifth brother was born and, as their family grew, so did their business. Since starting expansion in 2002, Five Guys has grown almost exclusively through demand and strong franchise partners. Now, almost 30 years after Five Guys first opened, there are over 1,200 locations in North America and the UK and over 1500 units in development. The expansion into the UAE is no exception and we are very proud to open our second store in Dubai Marina Mall.
