Our story began to be written in the year 1990. In those times of re-acquired freedom, we have decided to embark on a journey of private entrepreneurship. The beginnings were modest, and we have prepared and sold our first hot-dogs and fries in a food trailer. The rising popularity of our products has, however, provided us with an opportunity to move forward and grow. This is how the foundations were laid for our Fast Food in Martin and Vrútky.
Over the time of the next three years, we have acquired more concession stands and opened our first brick-and-mortar restaurant. It was during this period we have established our brand – Frito – that stood for a local chain of fast-food restaurants. The foundations of our company were laid on the values of offering a reliable quality of food and services for a reasonable price. As a result of ever-increasing demand, the core of our employee team was also formed.
Among the most memorable events that have over time gained almost a legendary status are events such as “French Fries Wednesday” or “Friday the 13th when people waited for up to several hours to get a burger for just 13 Slovak crowns (the approximate equivalent of today 50 cents).
In the year 2001, we have reached an important milestone. We have purchased and renovated our own building in the centre of Martin, part of which was also a new spacious restaurant.
Thanks to this space, we were able to evolve qualitatively. The fast-food menu has been augmented, and several lines of new products were introduced. The most crucial progress was the launching of a full-featured kitchen with a chef, which meant a daily breakfast and lunch menu together with an abundant selection of salads, fresh juices and quality coffee.
As we are living in times, when supermarkets are overfilled with processed foods and imported groceries from all around the world, we have decided to shift our focus even more towards quality and sustainability. Thus, we transformed our brand into a new concept called Fineburgers. The change did not include only a new logo and a refurbished modern design but also an upgraded menu offering a street-food selection that is convenient, tasty, and made out of quality and local ingredients. We bake our own burger and hot-dog buns, use meat from Slovak suppliers that raise animals without the usage of growth hormones or antibiotics, and use milk products, fish, and vegetables from local farms.
Trying to contribute to deferring the climate crisis as much as possible, we offer a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan meals, use packaging made out of compostable materials, recycled paper towels and toilet paper, and recycle the biological waste by composting.
We, at Fineburgers, believe in the high quality of our meals, professional approach towards our customers, and responsible approach towards our environment. We have built our company on these foundations from the very beginning, and they remained the core values of our enterprise till this day.
Our most essential endeavour, however, has always been and still is, the utmost satisfaction of our customers, of you. After all, it is your satisfaction and good feeling from the food that is most fulfilling and meaningful for us.
We will be happy if you will visit us.
We would like to thank you for all the feedback and kindness shown in person or on our social networks.
Chladnuch family and all the staff of Fineburgers
