Family values are both the cornerstone of Farmer Boys® and our guiding North Star. We believe in extending our family, investing in our communities, making friends of strangers, and helping each other grow. Team members are not paid farm hands; they are a close-knit team that truly cares about each other and our guests. When you come to Farmer Boys, you are visiting your home away from home. It is our passion to make you feel cared for and nourished.
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 and crow’s feet wrinkles to prove it. They’re not just old school, they built the school. Serving award-winning burgers, hearty cooked-to-order breakfasts, huge, hand-chopped salads, and tall, stacked sandwiches since 1981, they know one thing: farm fresh food will never go out of style. At last count, there are over 100 Farmer Boys restaurants in California, Nevada, and Arizona. Today, thanks to an ever-expanding franchise operation, the Farmer Boys family continues to flourish.
Our team members are the heart and soul of our brand. They are fun, friendly, hardworking, trustworthy, and eager to serve and succeed as individuals. Working at Farmer Boys® is a ‘first job’ for many. We pride ourselves in growing each new generation of team members and instilling our values in them. Teaching them important life skills that will set them up for future success. We have a saying, “Once a farmer, always a farmer.” And we are eternally grateful for past and present team members who put their friendly stamp of excellence on the brand.
They are more than valued business partners. They are our trusted friends and brand leaders. Farmer Boys® is in their hearts, and it shows in their restaurants. We are proud to have franchisees who have grown with Farmer Boys, adding successful restaurants as the brand has grown. They help us expand the Farmer Boys brand and extend the Farmer Boys experience in new cities, counties, and states. Our franchisees are hands-on, hardworking individuals with a proven track record of success. They share our values and understand the importance of going the extra mile for guests.
From where does all the training, new products, procedures, and creative marketing for Farmer Boys® come from? Not the Scarecrow. It’s our Restaurant Support Center at Farmer Boys headquarters. Our Support Center is the nerve center of the brand. The RSC team works to support franchisees and team members, and it provides our restaurants with all the tools needed to succeed.
Farmer Boys® celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2021! Founded in 1981, Farm Boys began as a dream for five burger-loving brothers raised on a family farm. They grew up working the soil, and they have the calloused hands and crow’s feet wrinkles to prove it. They’re not just old school, they built the school. Serving award-winning burgers, hearty cooked-to-order breakfasts, huge, hand-chopped salads, and tall, stacked sandwiches since 1981, they know one thing: farm fresh food will never go out of style. Today they are still involved in the business to ensure we stay true to our brand values.
The next generation of Farmer Boys and Girls is joining the business. Children of the five founding brothers are now helping to drive the business forward. They are involved in various aspects of the business working alongside the restaurant support team and the founders with a focus on future trends, while maintaining a deep understanding of and an appreciation for the past.
