Hwy 55 to Use Its Classic Carolina-Style Hamburger Special to Benefit Children on National Southern Food Day

On January 22, Hwy 55 Will Donate $1 for Each Classic Carolina-Style Hamburger Special Sold to Speedway Children’s Charities 

January 13, 2017 // Franchising.com // Mount Olive, NC, — Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries is putting its Classic “Carolina Style” Hamburger special to work on National Southern Food Day in order to help children.

 On Sunday, January 22, Hwy 55 will donate $1 for each Classic Carolina-Style Hamburger special to benefit Speedway Children’s Charities, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides funding for hundreds of non-profit organizations that meet the direct needs of children throughout the nation.

The Classic Carolina-Style Hamburger special features a fresh, never-frozen hamburger patty topped with mustard, onions, chili and slaw. The Southern-style burger sells for $6.99 with fries and a drink.

 “Every day is Southern Food Day at Hwy 55,” said Hwy 55 founder and president Kenney Moore. “’Hwy 55 believes in being good neighbors to the families that dine with us. On National Southern Food Day, we’ll use one of our bestsellers in order to support an organization whose vision is that every child has the same opportunities no matter what obstacle they are facing. The charity is near and dear to our friends John Boy & Billy so we thought it was a perfect match of Southern food and a great cause.”

John Boy & Billy, stars of the nationally syndicated radio show The Big Show, have been involved with Speedway Children’s Charities for years. The duo asked Moore to be on the show to talk about Hwy 55’s ongoing community support and the upcoming donation for National Southern Food Day.

Friends of the Hwy 55 brand, John Boy & Billy’s Southern-food staples are even featured on the menu with a John Boy & Billy BBQ Bacon Burger and John Boy & Billy Chicken Sandwich, both which feature the star duo’s famous Grillin’ Sauce.  

Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries boasts a fresh, All-American diner 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 handcrafting meals is front and center.
