Jake's Wayback Burgers inks deal in 20th state; opens first location on the West Coast

America’s hometown burger joint continues rapid nationwide expansion.

Jake’s Wayback Burgers, with 57 units, today announces that it will be opening in Minnesota, making this the 20th state the burger joint will operate in. Jake’s Wayback Burgers currently operates in 13 states and has inked deals to open in California, Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, South Carolina and Virginia.

“Since we opened the doors to our first franchised location in 2008, we were confident that our concept, premium product offering and diverse menu would have nationwide demand,” said John Eucalitto, president, Jake’s Franchising, LLC. “Opening in these new markets not only provides growth, but gives us the opportunity to seek multi-unit operators because our infrastructure is established to support the growth. We can support multi-unit operators for traditional and non-traditional locations.”

Additionally, Jake’s Wayback Burgers opened the doors to its first West Coast location in Eugene, Oregon on October 1, 2012 and will be opening in Santa Ana, California, and Medford, Oregon within the next couple of months. On the East Coast, Jake’s Wayback Burgers recently opened in Salem, New Hampshire; Voorhees, New Jersey; Yorktown Heights, New York; and Glen Mills, Pennsylvania.

Jake’s Wayback Burgers serves the best burgers under the bun, hand-pattied from 100% fresh, never frozen ground beef and grilled to order. The restaurant offers rich, thick milkshakes made the old-fashioned way by hand, using only fresh milk and hand-dipped ice cream. Jake’s Wayback Burgers offers menu items such as marinated grilled chicken sandwiches, veggie burgers, turkey burgers, salads and house-made chips, as well as the famous burger and Shake of the Month.

Founded in 1991 in Newark, DE, Jake’s Wayback Burgers is the re-imaging of the Great American roadside burger stand. It’s a throwback to an era before Eisenhower and Interstate highways, before drive-in movies, sock-hops and poodle skirts, before Howard Johnson began the process of homogenizing the food people ate across the country.
