MOOYAH has announced that it is ready to debut in St. Louis and wants to build five new restaurants in the city within the next three years. The burger brand has plans to add a further 22 on top of the initial five.
“We are laser-focused on expanding our presence across the entire country,” said Mike Sebazco, MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes’ executive vice president of operations & development.
“We utilized market analytics to canvas the United States and decide where we should be growing based on other successful MOOYAH locations. The St. Louis community features very business-friendly municipalities and, demographically, the consumer landscape is very similar to cities where our brand has traditionally thrived.”
Since MOOYAH has yet to establish a presence in St. Louis, the area features wide-open territory availability and is exclusively looking for multi-unit franchisees.
“We’ve seen double-digit systemwide sales growth over the past year, and now, riding that momentum, we’re honing in on finding the right franchise partners to grow with us across the country,” said Sebazco.
“We are looking forward to accepting new franchise owners into the MOOYAH family and bringing our one-of-a-kind ‘better burger’ experience to St. Louis.”
