Wahlburgers, a fast casual burger restaurant founded by brothers Mark, Donnie, and Paul Wahlberg and subject of a new A&E Network's original series, "Wahlburgers", announced expansion plans in North America, including new developments in Boston, Toronto and Philadelphia.
Wahlburgers has signed a franchise agreement with Hingham Associates, LLC that will bring five Wahlburgers to the metropolitan Philadelphia area over the next several years. The franchise group is actively looking at sites and is targeting a late 2014-early 2015 opening for its first restaurant.
In addition, Wahlburgers is finalizing leases for two new restaurants in the metro and suburban Boston area. These include sites within Samuels and Associates' Fenway neighborhood development in Boston and in WS Development's Market Street Center in Lynnfield. Both restaurants are planned to be over 4200 square feet with sizable outdoor patios and offer all the signature characteristics of the original Hingham location, including full-serve and self-serve dining options, take-out, and a full bar. These two locations were selected after reviewing over 40 options over the last 18 months and are consistent with the company's desire to locate Wahlburgers in premier, high traffic locations.

"We will continue to look for partners and multi-unit operators that can help us expand into new markets in a way that upholds the strength and standards of the Wahlberg brand."
