Earlier in the week, we blogged about Phil Mickelson’s newfound passion for 5 Guys Burger And Fries.
So it turns out that passion isn't completely new. People who represent the second-ranker golfer in the world have revealed during the week that Mickelson is actually a partner in a group that purchased a 5 Guys franchise in Orange County, California. There is a brewing rivalry between 5 Guys and In-N-Out Burger fans about which restaurant has the best burger in America. Some have criticized Mickelson for not coming out and declaring his interest in 5 Guys.
Personally, we don’t care. We’re just happy to see a pro athlete taking an active role in the franchising world. For what’s it worth, 5 Guys have great connections in the sports world. Former Washington Redskins great Mark Moseley is their director of franchising.
