About Wayback Burgers
Founded in 1991 in Newark, DE, Wayback Burgers is a Connecticut-based fast-casual franchise with a reputation for fresh burgers and thick, hand-dipped milkshakes, and currently operates in 26 states with over 120 locations nationally and internationally in Argentina, Brunei and Saudi Arabia.
Currently operating in 26 states, 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 worldwide. We are rapidly expanding our brand, recently reaching over 375 contracted locations with over 100 currently operating nationally.
Wayback Burgers is all about creating great memories that stand the test of time. That's why our restaurants are warm and inviting - comfy places where you can hook up with good friends, put your elbows on the table, and simply be yourself.
At Wayback Burgers, our juicy, hot-off-the-griddle burgers are cooked to order and served fresh. Our signature house-made potato chips go perfectly with our thick, rich milkshakes. The warm, welcoming décor makes the short wait for a hot burger that much easier, or customers can pick up orders placed by phone or online ordering. Monthly burger and shake specials keep things lively for our many repeat guests. Additional menu items include hot dogs, a variety of sandwiches, chicken fingers, and fresh salads.
All franchise owners receive initial and ongoing training as well as support.
“When searching for franchise opportunities we were seeking that X-factor, and with Wayback Burgers using some of the best ingredients to create such high-quality food, it was a no-brainer. We have received such incredible support from the corporate leadership team and can't wait to introduce this new burger concept to our community!” Karen Schmitz. Woodbury, MN | Franchise Owner
