Beth’s Burger Bar

Beth Steele is an Up-State New York native who now calls Orlando, Florida her home. She has earned the nickname “Wonder Woman,” from her friends and family, due to her tenacious and relentless pursuit for excellence in her personal and professional endeavors. With a keen eye for opportunity, Beth has successfully grown her own staffing company, a non-profit organization, and the Beth’s Burger Bar brand as well as becoming a successful offshore angler. She was thrilled to win the Swordfish Tournament in the summer of 2022.

In August of 1995, Beth created Team Staffing Services, staffing clients into a variety of positions, such as light industrial, hospitality, and clerical positions. With hard work, dedication, and her astounding ability of fostering relationships with her loyal clients and employees, Beth has been able to grow her company and receive multiple accolades throughout the years. Accolades such as “Top 20 Woman Owned Businesses,”“Top 20 Staffing Agencies,” as well as several nominations for “Orlando’s Women who Mean Business Award.” To this date, Team Staffing Services continues to provide employment and opportunity to thousands of Central Florida residents. 

In 2011, due to her mother Joyce Steele’s passing from cancer, Beth created a non-profit organization named Shades Hopes Dreams. Shades Hopes Dreams is an organization which encourages everyone to boost the fight against cancer. Seeing her mom go through so many triumphant highs and gut wrenching lows throughout her battle with cancer is what gave Beth the inspiration to help so many others. Shades Hopes Dreams is the result. Beth aspires to help improve the hopes and dreams of the men, women and children who are suffering from the disease.

Inspired by her mother’s strength and passionate spirit, Beth was once again motivated to stand out from the crowd. Her vision was to create a restaurant that boasted a highly customizable build-a-burger menu along with refrigerators full of domestic and imported beers and wines. The idea of the burger bar was derived from Beth’s habit of customizing her burger orders at other restaurants. In December of 2012, Beth opened her first restaurant in Downtown, Orlando and named it “BETH’S BURGER BAR.” She will be celebrating 10 years December 2022.

It did not take long for Beth’s Burger Bar to be recognized by the community as the place to go get the “Best Burger in Town.” In 2013, Beth’s Burger Bar won an award from A-List for “Best Local Burger.” The accolade was followed by several other awards throughout the years, such Orlando Magazine’s “Late Night Dining Award” from the years 2016-2018 and “Foodie Awards” in 2017. We have won Best Burger for Orlando Magazine 2016-2022. All of the burger bar’s success and admiration from the community led to her opening several other locations. Residents of Central Florida and visitors alike can now enjoy Beth’s Burgers at four different locations; The City of Edgewood, Lake Mary, Lake Cay and the Orange County Convention Center. The plan is Clermont in 2023.

Beth has also made it a personal goal to continuously give back and make a difference in her community and bring joy to people’s lives. She accomplishes this goal by participating in the organization Big Brothers & Big Sisters and hosting monthly charity events at her Beth’s Burger Bar locations. Beth also participates in and donates to other charities such as M.S, Autism, Orlando Strong, Tough Biker, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and many local schools.

When Beth is not out conquering the work force or fulfilling peoples search for the best burger in town, she can be found in the middle of the sea enjoying her favorite hobby; offshore fishing. She started a company called Hooker Booker, which is an online fishing charter business. You can book your favorite captains all over for inshore or offshore.  Beth has made it a mission to try and land a record breaking Swordfish. Beth’s current record is a beastly 441 pound swordfish…evidence she truly is the “Woman of Steel”.  |
