MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes Finishes Year Strong with Impressive Growth in 2013; Opens 16 Restaurants Globally

Customizable Burger Franchise Brand Heats Up "Better Burger" Industry with a Goal of 44 Openings in 2014

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 29, 2014 - With consistent growth in 2013, MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes (MOOYAH) is prepared to achieve another series of milestones in 2014, eyeing the opening of more than 40 restaurants by year-end. In fact, throughout the past year, MOOYAH opened 14 new restaurants in the United States, while also awarding another two units internationally.

"Our success in 2013 is due in part to a passionate and ambitious team of multi-unit franchisees who continue to build enthusiasm and momentum for the MOOYAH brand," said President and CEO Rich Hicks. "In order to continue propelling our brand forward throughout 2014, we are looking for prospective operators that possess the experience and enthusiasm necessary for long-term growth with MOOYAH."

MOOYAH certainly has reason to celebrate. In 2013, the fast-casual "better burger" brand opened a total of 16 restaurants, including 14 in the U.S. and two in Dubai and Bahrain. Furthermore, MOOYAH signed 26 deals in the last year, representing a total of 49 units planned to open.

"MOOYAH’s goal for 2014 is to achieve strategic and international growth, whether developing in existing markets with high demand, or introducing the MOOYAH experience to new territories," said Vice President of Franchise Development and Operations Michael Mabry. "This twofold strategy, coupled with an exceptional product, will allow MOOYAH to truly assert ourselves as the leader in the competitive burger segment."

Not only was the 55-plus-unit chain named in USA Today’s Top 50 Franchises for Military Veterans in June 2013, but MOOYAH also earned a No. 8 ranking in Fast Casual Magazine’s annual rankings of the Top 100 Movers & Shakers.

"The dedication of our entire system is responsible for the national recognition we received in 2013," said Hicks. "We depend on the passion and loyalty of both international and domestic franchisees to continue setting a precedent for MOOYAH as a leader in the ‘better burger’ segment."

Reflecting on 2013 alone, MOOYAH has plans to continue its sustained expansion, already predicting that the brand will add over 1,000 jobs to local communities through its restaurant openings in 2014. MOOYAH shows no signs of slowing down and aims to deliver a simple American classic that’s not only made well, but produced in a friendly and comfortable environment to new and fresh markets in the future.
