Orcutt Burgers, which first opened its doors in 1998, was named the 35th Assembly District’s small business of the year Thursday by Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, R-San Luis Obispo. The original fast-food restaurant, owned and operated by the Zafiris family, is located at 1099 Clark Ave. in Orcutt, but restaurants have also been opened in the former Village Burgers at 3787 Constellation Road in Lompoc and the former KFC at 1771 W. Grand Ave. in Grover Beach.
“This is our community’s opportunity to help save lives from cancer and remember our loved ones who have lost their battle to this horrible disease,” Amanda Thomas, event chairperson, said in a news release.
This year’s theme is “Force For A Cure!” and celebrates the theme of “Star Wars."
