Not for sale."
In the beginning of the movie, when Ed is hurrying to Good Burger and the customer is counting down from 5, you can see a fold-out chair on the roof. Like from the scene where they go to Ed's "secret" place.
Although the customers and employees are only ever seen eating the Good Burgers and Good Fries, the menu (which can be seen behind Ed several times) shows that Good Burger also serves Good Chunks, Good Chickwiches, Good Weenies, Good Tacos, Good Chili, and Good Pickles. Their Good Beverage selection includes Coca-Cola products, Good Shakes and Good Coffee. And their dessert menu consists of Good Cookies and Good Pies.

In 1999, Steve Holland had wrote a script called Good Burger 2 Go, a sequel to the original film that had Ed and Dexter uncovering a scandal when a British conglomerate buys the Good Burger restaurant.

There are at least two employees at Good Burger (an African-American man and a Caucasian woman with blonde hair) whose names we never learn, nor do we hear them speak.
The DVD for the film has no special features, which have been requested by many fans of the film. Two fans, that being Mason Morgan & Ryun Jones had made a message on their show The Marvelous M Show (2011), asking Nickelodeon and Paramount to make a 20th Anniversary Blu-Ray Disc by summer of 2017 featuring the making of special "On the Job with Kenan & Kel", the music video to Ed's song "We're All Dudes", some deleted scenes, and Bumpers from "Nick in the Afternoon" featuring the premiere of the film.

Kenan Thompson told The Morning Call that at one point, there was virtually two-thousand pounds of meat on the set; some of it being old. "It was so nasty. Some of the burgers would stay out there for a long time. I felt sorry for the extras who had to eat them with cold, clammy fries. But on screen, those burgers look good."

In order to keep the food looking good on screen, Elmer's glue was used. When Mitchell's character scooped out ice cream in the movie, it was really vegetable shortening with food coloring.
