Wayback Burgers Remains on a Hot Streak with New Restaurant Openings in Brand New Locations

America’s Favorite Hometown Burger Joint Expands Domestically and Internationally in Q1 2018

April 18, 2018 // Franchising.com // Cheshire, CT - Wayback Burgers, America’s favorite hometown burger joint and one of the nation’s fastest growing burger franchises, is riding a monstrous wave of momentum in 2018. The company is approaching major milestones while introducing its world-famous burgers, fries and milkshakes to fans in brand new states and countries. This surge comes on the heels of a prosperous 2017.

The rapidly growing franchise chain’s global presence was bolstered with the opening of a new restaurant in Sudan. The Sudan location is Wayback Burgers’ second in Africa, joining the restaurant in Morocco. To date, Wayback Burgers can be found in Argentina, Brunei, Kuwait, Malaysia, and Saudi Arabia (with plans to open very soon in the Netherlands and Bangladesh).

Domestically, Wayback Burgers, recently ranked as a top 10 best fast casual restaurant franchise by franchiserankings.com, continues to thrive. In Q1, Wayback Burgers opened three new locations, including Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, Maryland and Washington Navy Yard, Washington, DC (both owned by Azhar Mubeen) and Hinesville, GA (owned by David McElhaney).

That third new Q1 location proves the popularity of Wayback Burgers is on full display just off Georgia’s coast. David McElhaney , who also owns the Beaufort, SC Wayback restaurant, opened his second restaurant in Hinesville, just south of Savannah, in late February, and he’s off to a blistering sales pace. In a two-week span, McElhaney netted revenues exceeding $90,000. McElhaney, a veteran of fast-casual restaurants, attributes his success to research, the power of social media, and gut-feelings.

Wayback Burgers’ Executive Vice President, Bill Chemero, is impressed by McElhaney’s sizzling sales start, but not entirely surprised.

“Our success is contingent on providing our guests the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy fresh, never frozen burgers, delicious fries, and hand-dipped milkshakes in a comfortable setting,” says Chemero. “David knows the business well, did his homework, scouted the perfect location and is now reaping the perks of his meticulous preparation. It was obvious the wonderful residents of Hinesville were starving for quality meals and David is delivering just that as the local Wayback owner. His success is truly a testament to his phenomenal operational skills and commitment to delivering fantastic experiences to each guest.”

America’s favorite hometown burger joint will soon become a fixture for even more families across the country as Wayback Burgers finalized seven lease signings in Q1, as well:

  • Irving, TX - Bobby Tanweer
  • Reno, NV - Amar Singh
  • Sacramento, CA - Sarib Rehman
  • Round Rock, TX - Melvin & Bonnie Diwadkar
  • Mint Hill, SC - Anna Turovskaya & Joel White
  • Lexington, SC - John Rackus
  • Secaucus, NJ - Rab Abdur

Wayback Burgers’ Senior Vice President, Patrick Conlin, believes the company is perfectly situated to satisfy America’s thirst for quality products and excellent guest service.

“It would be accurate to attribute Wayback Burgers’ success to multiple strategy sessions, detailed research, intense discussions and executing our brand promise,” says Conlin. “Bottom line, guests want high-quality, fresh and never frozen burgers and hand-dipped milkshakes. Our franchisees have consistently delivered exactly that since our inception nearly 30 years ago. We take pride in paying close attention to details and the growth that we continue to experience is proof positive that our guests notice it as well.”
