Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries

About Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries

Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries has been serving up good times and great food since 1991. We've achieved a lot in the last over 25 years, growing to over 100 restaurants across North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and Florida, with 500 more locations scheduled to open in the next 7 years. During that time, our mission has remained the same: to provide each guest with world-class service and fresh food in a family atmosphere. 
Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries fits a niche between fast food and casual dining, offering the customer the best benefits of both segments. We provide the convenience of fast food, with rapid response times and an affordable menu, but with a twist: our freshly made food is a much tastier alternative to typical pre-cooked hamburgers and french fries.
We offer
 *Limited menu with widespread appeal

 *Several store design/location options

 *An efficient operational system

 *Strong online/on-site training & marketing programs

 *Access to our network of hand-picked food vendors

 *Ongoing support from a dedicated franchise team

 *A firm foundation for success

 The Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries franchise program is designed for the growth of the individual and the company; it's not an investment, it's a family. We look forward to using our talents to help you realize your personal and financial goals, and to helping others do the same!

At Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries, we expect the highest quality from our menu and staff, right on up to our franchisees. We're looking for dedicated individuals that want to control their own destiny while building an organization consumed by a passion for serving people.

Those who join us as franchise owners will have the tools at hand to quickly build and grow their business, plus the support of a team that has been there before.

If you are going to be an Area Developer, then you will sign an Area Development Agreement and pay an area development fee. The amount of the Area Development Fee will depend on the number of Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries restaurants to be developed under the Area Development Agreement, and will be calculated as follows: $25,000 for the first Hwy 55 restaurant plus a deposit of $12,000 for each additional Hwy 55 restaurant to be opened under that agreement. For example, if you will develop three Hwy 55 restaurants, the Area Development Fee is calculated as $25,000 + (2 x $12,500 = $25,000) = $50,000.
