After the success of its first restaurant, in Covent Garden, this American-style burger chain has expanded to 90 sites under chief executive John Eckbert, 50. It was established in 2013, when the founder of Carphone Warehouse, Sir Charles Dunstone, 53, was inspired by the popularity of the American chain to create this joint venture with the founding Murrell family and bring their handmade burgers and crispy bacon milkshakes to the UK.
