Why Wayback Burgers Franchisees Continue to Expand with The Brand

Why Wayback Burgers Franchisees Continue to Expand with The Brand

At Wayback Burgers strong culture and proven success keeps franchisees invested in the long term. As of 2022, over 41% of Wayback Burgers franchisees own and operate more than one restaurant. Multi-unit restaurant ownership comes with benefits such as sharing marketing expenses, training and hiring expenses and helping lower operational variable costs. In the past couple of years existing franchisees are re-investing in the system and opening additional units and new franchisees are planning for multi-unit ownership from the start by signing agreements for 2-6+ restaurants taking advantage of franchise fee discounts by committing to multiple restaurants in advance. 

Multi-unit owner, David McElhaney said "First was the quality of food.  When I walked into the Savannah, GA location as a customer, I fell in love with the burger and milkshake.  I thought 'this is food I can be proud to serve'.  And the quality of the executive team and their focus on relationships was a key decision maker for me." David joined the Wayback Burgers family in 2016 and currently owns 3 Wayback Burgers locations in the Southeast and just signed his 4th agreement for the greater Savannah, GA market. When asked what advice he would give to someone looking to purchase a Wayback Burgers franchise David said “Location is critical because you are going to be operating a business in that spot for 20 years or more.  Take your time to find the right location.  Also, trust the process Wayback Burgers has put in place.  They have tremendous experience and are there to help you be a great success.”
