Wayback Burgers Franchise

Fast casual burgers

Though only in a few states as yet, Wayback Burgers' potential has been demonstrated by our loyal following. From our first humble shop in Newark, DE, opened in 1991 as Jake's Hamburgers and still a state favorite, we've now begun franchising aggressively. Having only recently grown to 54 contracted locations (21 currently operating) throughout the East Coast and beyond, we're moving fast. With new stores available nationwide [we may need to file a prospectus in your state prior to executing an agreement], here's the opportunity to set your course for success.

At Wayback Burgers, our juicy, fresh-off-the-griddle burgers are cooked to order and never frozen. Our signature house-made potato chips go perfectly with our thick, rich milkshakes. The warm, welcoming decor makes the short wait for a hot burger that much easier, or customers can pick up orders placed by phone, fax or Web. Monthly burger and shake specials keep things lively for our many repeat customers. Additional menu items include hot dogs, a variety of sandwiches, chicken fingers, and fresh salads.

Many Americans crave better taste and atmosphere than fast food chains offer, but they want value, too. That's why the number of US fast casual burger units (including Wayback Burgers) nearly doubled from 2004-2008, and their revenues grew even more. The 17 largest fast casual burger chains grew sales by 11% in 2008, at the height of a recession! A Wayback Burgers franchise offers a way to capitalize on this demand with a proven system for success.

Simple, classic fare from Wayback Burgers lets you capitalize on options like drive-through, delivery, catering and fundraisers. We also participate in VetFran to support our American armed services veterans. Open the restaurant you always dreamed of, or take advantage of our discount on multi-unit purchases.

Whether you're looking to open several units, a few, or even just one, we'd love to talk to you. We offer multi-unit discounts and we're Area Developer friendly, too. Plus, our affordable investment level also makes Wayback Burgers the perfect opportunity for those wanting to open just one store.
