History of the iconic Biff Burger

Biff-Burger was started in the mid-1950s as a chain called Biff-Burger Drive In by brothers Bruce and Earl Bane. They opened up their first store in Clearwater, this store was home to their corporate office for years. The company had franchises everywhere from Florida to Canada. Biff stood for Best In Fast Food and was known for its 100% beef burgers and the process that went into making a Biff burger.

By the late 70s, the National Biff-Burger System and Biff’s Chains went out of business. Out of hundreds of franchises only two stayed open, and only one location kept the name and architecture, the Biff-Burgers in Pinellas Park.
