Over 75 of Toronto's bars and restaurants have closed permanently due to COVID-19 ― and hundreds more continue to struggle, but that isn't stopping Ottawa-based burger chain, Burger n' Fries Forever (BFF) from defying the odds with the opening of a new location in Toronto's hard-hit Entertainment District. 

Jamil Bhuya, owner of Burger n' Fries Forever (BFF), understands the grim reality his industry is facing, but he had already signed a lease earlier in the year. So, he's persevering and shifting his business model to focus exclusively on providing delivery and take-out, much like the other eateries are doing to survive.

So far so good. After a soft launched last week at 106 John Street that generated round-the-block lineups, it's clear Torontonians wanted to try the premium AAA dry-aged burgers, which include halal, veggie, vegan, and gluten-free options ― served with their legendary double-fried hand-cut fries.

"I'm so grateful to those Torontonians who came by last week to indulge in the BFF experience – and try our new featured burger: the Drip Drip" (a burger topped with a thick slab of local salted butter) said Bhuya. "I hope this continues throughout the winter as burgers are always in season!"

To support the new launch, BFF is running a "12 Days of Burgers" holiday promotion where random UberEats orders will contain a Golden Ticket for a free meal for two. Winners will also receive a copy of Cooking From Home, purchased by BFF with all proceeds donated to Not 9 to 5, a charity dedicated to providing mental health resources to hospitality workers ― a personal cause for Bhuya.

Burgers n' Fries Forever (BFF) carries a kids' menu option as well with a Plain Burger, Fries, and Pop.
