Wayback Burgers (US) Launches Newest Location in Canada
22 May 2019 - Wayback Burgers, America's Favorite Hometown Burger Joint and one of the world's fastest-growing burger franchises, opened a new location in Canada. Wayback Burgers' newest location opened in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on May 18 — marking the fast-growing burger chain's 11th international restaurant, and the first in Canada.
The new Wayback Burgers, located at 1255 St James St., will be owned and operated by Mike Brown. As a resident of Winnipeg, Brown understands the local community and the excitement a fresh burger concept like Wayback will bring.
"After attending discovery day, trying the delicious food and seeing the new design, I knew that we needed a Wayback Burgers in Winnipeg. And, I wanted to be the first to open one in Canada. Also, after meeting with Rick De Dominicis, Master Franchisee for Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and seeing his drive to succeed and the support that he was offering, I knew I was in good hands."
Brown will be partnering with the Boys and Girls Club of Canada as well as local clubs every month. He also will reach out to other local groups, like the Special Olympics of Manitoba and Alzheimer's Society of Manitoba, to see what support he can offer them.
Wayback Burgers offers delicious, cooked-to-order burgers, available as a single, classic double, triple and triple-triple (nine patties). Also rich, thick milkshakes made the old-fashioned way, by hand, using only whole milk and hand-dipped ice cream. All served in an environment that hearkens back to a simpler place and time — when "customer service" meant something and everyone felt the warmth of the community. Going "way" beyond the burger, Wayback Burgers offers crispy and grilled chicken sandwiches, veggie burgers, fresh salads and delicious sides, including fries, onion rings and House Made Chips.
"Wayback Burgers is growing quickly internationally, so we are pleased to announce this latest expansion in Canada," said Jason Murawski, Vice president of International Development of Jake's Franchising LLC. "It's our franchisees' passion and commitment to their communities that makes Wayback Burgers successful. We are confident Mike Brown and his team will continue that commitment in Winnipeg with their first Wayback Burgers restaurant."
