Wayback Burgers now open in Gluckstadt
GLUCKSTADT — Wayback Burgers is now open here with their legandary cooked-to-order burgers and hand-dipped milkshakes.
The restaurant, located off Gluckstadt Road between Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery and AT&T, celebrated its grand opening this past weekend with a ribbon cutting.
Guests enjoyed a buy-one, get-one-free Classic Burger deal and raffles for prizes including free burgers for a year and Wayback Burgers gift cards.
Fifteen percent of all in-restaurant sales went to the Boys and Girls Club of Central Mississippi, an organization dedicated to enhancing the development of youth, ages 6 - 18, by providing specialized programs for success, healthy lifestyle, and leadership development.
This new Wayback Burgers location is owned and operated by Govinda Krishna, a Sri Lanka native. Govinda came to the United States when he was 20 years old to attend college and has lived in Madison for the last three years.
Govinda knew after working in the restaurant industry throughout college that opening his own restaurant was something he wanted to do. He became interested in Wayback Burgers after speaking with another franchisee and was impressed by the immense support the franchise provides to its franchisees.
Govinda said he was excited to introduce Wayback Burgers and its high-quality menu items to new and familiar faces, specifically, the “Cheeeesy Burger” and tater tots, which are some of his favorite menu items.
Wayback Burgers was founded in 1991 in Newark, Delaware, and is a fast-casual restaurant franchise with a reputation for an environment that takes people back to a simpler place and time — when customer service meant something, and everyone felt the warmth of the community.
Wayback Burgers currently operates in 35 states with over 166 locations nationally and internationally in Brunei, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, The Netherlands, Manitoba, Canada, Ireland, and Japan.
