Our Famous Story

Best friends since they were eight years old, Brian Burchill and Robert Maynard share a passion for good times, good food, and the performing arts. Turns out that’s a pretty good combination for the restaurant business.

In 2005, they opened their first Toastery in Huntersville, NC with three more to follow. By 2013, they turned their big idea into a thriving franchise system. Today, nearly 30 Famous Toasteries have popped up along the East Coast with more on the way.
