  • Farmer Boys History – 1960s

    1960's
    CYPRUS BEGINNINGS

    Growing up on the island of Cyprus, the brothers work on the family farm and in the family restaurant. Known to friends and family as “The Farmer Boys,” they learn the importance of hard work and grilling a killer burger.

Farmer Boys® was founded in 1981 by five burger-loving brothers raised on a family farm. They grew up working the soil, and they have the calloused hands to prove it. They’re not just old school, they built the school. After nearly 35 years of serving award-winning burgers, hearty cooked-to-order breakfasts, huge, hand-chopped salads and tall, stacked sandwiches, they know one thing: farm fresh food will never go out of style. At last count, there are nearly 90 Farmer Boys restaurants in California and Nevada. Today, thanks to an ever-expanding franchise operation, the Farmer Boys family continues to grow.
