reporting plans to expand with new nationwide restaurant openings, including Massachusetts in the Fenway section of Boston and in Lynnfield. This expansion comes just three years after the original Wahlburger's opened at the Hingham Shipyard in Hingham, Mass.
A popular burger joint founded by executive chef Paul Wahlberg and celebrity brothers Mark and Donnie, Wahlburgers agreements have been made for 20 locations in Florida and seven in New York City -- six in Manhattan and one on Coney Island. The Florida and New York locations will also include full-serve and quick-serve dining options, take-out and a full bar. The Brookline Ave. Fenway and MarketStreet Lynnfield locations will have the same format with expected openings some time in 2015, according to the press release.
Franchise agreements have also been made in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the Philadelphia, Penn., area. Canada has one Wahlburgers with its November 2014 opening in Toronto.
Wahlburgers is known for its ground beef burgers, but also specializes in pure beef hot dogs, crispy fries, onion rings, tater tots, signature salads, and specialty frappes for lunch and dinner.
One advantage Wahlburgers has over other local or chain restaurants is that the restaurant has been featured in more than 18 episodes, to date, in the A&E Network's reality show, the "Wahlburgers."
“These agreements put us closer to our vision of making Wahlburgers a happy part of people’s lives across America and around the world. Donnie, Paul, and I appreciate the support of our fans and all those who love great burgers,” said Mark Wahlberg, in the press release.
