The popular Atlanta-based organic burger chain Farm Burger founded by George Frangos linked with other restaurants there to kick off a so-called Ghost Kitchen concept with take-out and delivery only, which became a survival technique during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It debuted at Farm Burger’s Buckhead location, featuring Southern fried chicken sandwiches, with the restaurant's signature style of organic and grassfed meats for its burgers and sandwiches, said Eater Atlanta.
Farm Birds partnered with Cooks Venture to provide the restaurant with pasture-raised, heirloom poultry. Farm Burger founder George Frangos and Cooks Venture founder Matthew Wadiak have known each other 20 years and met while working at a restaurant in New York City.
“The pandemic kicked our creativity up a notch and Farm Birds is a direct result of that,” Frangos said.
“What started as an idea about seven years ago has come to life in the form of a ghost kitchen, pop-up and delivery service all rolled into one. Our relationship with Cooks Venture has been cultivated for years and it’s been cool to watch it come full circle through Farm Birds,” one of a number of virtual restaurants.
