October 21, 2016 // Franchising.com // Fayetteville, North Carolina – Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries, the highly lauded All-American family-friendly diner, is scheduled to open a Fayetteville, North Carolina location on Monday, October 24th.
With the new restaurant located at 2800 Gillespie Street at the Airport Plaza, residents of Fayetteville and Cumberland County will experience an inviting dining experience with fresh, never-frozen burgers, premium sliced cheesesteaks piled high on steamed hoagies, and frozen custard made in-house every day. With its open-grill design, the kitchen's dedication and care when hand-crafting meals is front and center.
"Our city is going to go crazy over this burger joint. With Fayetteville State University, Methodist College and Fort Bragg close by, we thought this was a perfect location for Hwy 55,” said Brandon Rich, franchise owner of the Fayetteville Hwy 55. “We still have a small-town feel so we know Hwy 55's family-friendly concept and dedication to authentic hospitality will fit right in."
With 129 units, including dozens of locations in North Carolina, Hwy 55 is already a household name and the Fayetteville restaurant makes an attractive addition to the brand’s statewide-profile. Approximately 50 new Hwy 55 locations are planned for North Carolina over the next 10 years.
“We are thrilled to bring the great Hwy 55 brand to Fayetteville. I founded Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries 25 years ago to provide something that I felt was missing: great food, friendly service and honest value,” said Hwy 55 president Kenney Moore, who flipped every burger himself for the brand’s first two years of business. “Those principles continue today at all of our restaurants. This vibrant community has a rich family tradition which pairs perfectly with Hwy 55's focus on retro values and an always-fresh take on classics."
In keeping with Hwy 55’s continued mission to give back to the communities it enters, Hwy 55’s Andy’s Charitable Foundation and the local franchise owners will donate 10% of sales from the restaurant’s first three days to the Falcon Children's Home, whose mission is to provide a safe healing journey for hurting children and families. Andy’s Charitable Foundation is Hwy 55’s most visible commitment to community involvement.
Hwy 55, a retro-themed diner that features fresh, never-frozen hand-pattied burgers, house-made frozen custard, and other classic favorites in a unique open-kitchen setting, was founded in Goldsboro, North Carolina in 1991. Hwy 55 reflects founder Kenney Moore's commitment to authentic hospitality and fresh food. Widely known in the state for its fresh food and service that exceeds expectations, the chain won BurgerBusiness.com's "Best Burger" in 2012. It also was recently named a top 500 franchise in the United States by Entrepreneur magazine and a "Next 20" restaurant brand by Nation's Restaurant News.
