What Is The Five Guys Data Breach Class Action Settlement?

A $700,000 class action settlement has been agreed upon with Five Guys over a data breach in 2022 that affected former and current Five Guys employees. The 2022 data breach allegedly affected an additional number of dependents or beneficiaries, as well as some third-party contractors. The Five Guys class action lawsuit alleged that Five Guys did not take appropriate actions to protect the data that was leaked in the security incident.

Five Guys is an American fast-food restaurant chain known for its burgers, fries, and milkshakes. Founded in 1986 in Arlington, Virginia, Five Guys has grown rapidly and now has locations across the United States and in several other countries. They're known for their customizable burgers with a wide array of toppings and their famously generous portions of fries, which are cooked in peanut oil. The chain has gained a loyal following for its focus on fresh ingredients and made-to-order food. There are nearly 1,500 Five Guys restaurants in the United States as of 2024.
