5 things you didn't know about Five Guys

    1. The “Five Guys” are the founders’ sons
    The “five guys” the name refers to were originally founder Jerry Murrell and his four sons, Jim, Matt, Chad, and Ben. When a fifth son, Tyler, was born in 1988 Jerry bequeathed the title of “fifth guy” to him. All five sons are involved with the company: Jim and Matt visit stores throughout the country, Chad oversees all training, Ben chooses franchisees, and Tyler oversees the bakery.

    2. A former Redskins kicker played an active role in its expansion
    Mark Moseley is the best kicker in Washington Redskins history, and after his career ended he went to work for a franchise development company called Fransmart. He first got involved with Five Guys after the fledgling chain hired them to assist with their expansion, and Moseley did such a good job that the chain ended its relationship with Fransmart and hired Moseley to be its full-time director of franchise development, a position he still holds.

    3. It had one of the most rapid fast food expansions ever
    Five Guys’ expansion was astronomical. Within one year of it first offering franchises in 2003, more than 300 had been sold. By 2012, more than 1,000 locations had opened.

    4. The first UK location opened the day before Shake Shack did
    Oddly enough, both Five Guys and Shake Shack opened their first U.K. locations within one day of each other. The locations are a few blocks apart from one another, on Long Acre in London’s Covent Garden.

    5. You’re not allowed to take the free peanuts with you
    You can eat all the free peanuts you can handle while you’re on premises, but you’re not allowed to take them outside. “Although it is rare that a casual encounter with peanuts will cause an allergic reaction,” the chain says on its website, “we want to limit the risk of someone unknowingly coming into contact with peanuts.”
