Area developers Youssef Elmrani and Moutie Benhamza bring America’s hometown Burger Joint to the Kingdom of Morocco
Hometown burger joint Wayback Burgers has opened its newest store in Casablanca, Morocco on November 6, 2017.
The newest Wayback Burgers store is owned by Youssef Elmrani and Moutie Benhamza and is located at 10 Bis Rue Ibn Yala Al Ifrani, Maarif, Casablanca. Business management and marketing graduates Youssef and Moutie bought the rights to develop 8 Wayback Burgers restaurants in Morocco.
The business partners expect to have three stores operating in the west region by the end of 2019 and plan to open 2-3 more annually in the coming years. Each of the stores, including this one, will open with Wayback Burgers’ new “classic cool” in-store design.
Youssef says Wayback Burgers was the perfect fit for his first entrepreneurial journey because he loves the company’s culture and community first values. “After researching our local food and beverage industry, we found most customers love burgers, so choosing Wayback Burgers was an easy decision. We know for a fact that most competitors use frozen beef patties, so we knew we’d be introducing something with a serious competitive advantage in Wayback Burgers. We know we’ll be serving the best burgers in Morocco and we’re excited to get started!”
Wayback Burgers Director of International Development, Jason Murawski, is impressed with Youssef and Moutie’s success to date and believes the company’s fast casual burger concept is a perfect fit for Casablanca and surrounding Moroccan communities.
“We are thrilled Youssef and Moutie are opening our first Moroccan Wayback Burgers location in Casablanca” said Murawski. “After working tirelessly to build their resumes and reputations, Youssef and Moutie both possesses the perfect skill set to run a successful Wayback Burgers location. Plus, they are deeply committed to their community and support countless local organizations. We expect Youssef and Moutie to continue to flourish as Wayback Burgers owners/area developers and we look forward to helping them develop new locations throughout Casablanca, Morocco.”
