About Us

CEO and founder Jacques Kavafian

After 28 years in the financial industry I decided to create Fresh Burger to provide an honest hamburger experience. Hamburger restaurants are popping all over the city but only a few make hamburgers the way it should be. Many of them complicate the hamburger into various concoctions. We emphasize the taste of the hamburger itself. At Fresh Burger we promise to offer great tasting hamburgers done right. No mumbo jumbo burgers at my restaurant. We make our hamburgers with 100% premium Canadian beef that we grind freshly on site every day. My products are never frozen.

I love food but I love hamburgers and fries even more. I am also very specific about how things should be done as I harbour an aversion to cutting corners. That is why we promise that you will have as close to a perfect hamburger and fries experience as you can get.

To pair with our delicious hamburgers are our perfect fries. We peel and cut the potatoes by hand. We blanche them at low temperature in clean Canola oil. We make them crispy and delicious by frying at high temperature just before serving it to you.

Fresh Burger’s mission is to satisfy you, the customer. It is also to satisfy its employees and suppliers. Everyone who interacts with Fresh Burger must be satisfied with the experience. If for any reason your interaction with any member of our team fails to deliver on this promise, please contact me at my personal email address below and I will make sure we make things right.rnrnFresh Burger “Tastes Good like a Hamburger Should!” I hope you like it.rn

Our Team

Jacques founder and CEO


My name is Jacques and I am happy to share my passion for burgers and fries with you. In my book, a hamburger has to be had with American cheese which is why all our hamburgers come standard with cheese. Also, I like my fries peeled and crispy and that’s exactly how we serve them to you at Fresh Burger. I’m usually always at the store so please come say hi.

My name is Nagako but some call me Nancy to make it easier. I’m the manager of the restaurant. I did not grow up eating hamburgers a lot but through my association with my husband, Jacques, I ended up appreciating a good hamburger. I have to confess that Jacques does make the best French fries. But you don’t have to take my word for it, just come and taste it for yourself.
