Biggies Burger, a homegrown burger quick service restaurant (QSR) chain, has raised Rs 5.5 crore from the Indian Angel Network (IAN) and co-investors LetsVenture.  

Bootstrapped until now, the company will use the funds to expand its footprints and scale its franchising network and introduce products that will be redefined as per geography.

Founded in 2011, Biggies Burger serves customers across 13 states and 27 cities with over 117 franchise units. It has over 150 product designs and claims to have launched India’s first grilled burger chain that has 30 per cent lesser calories than usual burgers.
A brainchild of Biraja Rout, the QSR brand was co-founded by C Abilash and Sandeep Satpathyy. Rout said, “Our strong foothold in the country lies in fulfilling the demand in tier 2, 3, and 4 cities. However, we want to expand our franchising model, and IAN's investment will help us in this direction.”

IAN’s lead investor, Uday Chatterjee added, “Young Indian consumers crave diversity in variety and flavors along with nutritional values and healthy options. Biggies Burger is the largest domestic burger brand that has pioneered grilled burgers in the country. They have achieved exceptional growth with their franchised partners and have excellent dine-in facility in over 50 stores nationwide.”  

With investors from 12 countries, IAN has funded start-ups across 19 sectors in India. Its marquee investee companies include Druva, Spinny, Box8, Uniphore, WOW Momos, Consure, Fareye, NOCCARC, Propelld and Skit.ai.
