“Scott loved Wayback Burgers so much, he would fill up on their burgers during the day, then tell me he wasn’t hungry for the dinners I prepared at night. When he finally ‘fessed up, he told me how great they were, and offered to take me to one of their restaurants. I got hooked, too! That’s when I decided to investigate franchise opportunities with Wayback Burgers. When I met with the leadership team, I was impressed with their enthusiasm, commitment to quality and customer service. Plus, they shared their detailed, proven support system for franchisees, letting me know their focus was on our success first.” Scott and Jackie Ammerman | Multi-unit Owner
“Hi my name is Phil Dzienciol and I am a franchisee in Evansville, Indiana. We recently had the opportunity to open our 2nd Wayback on November 12th. Everyone at Jake’s Franchising was great to work with and helped me so much along the way. It is a pleasure working with every department. When we did our first store in 2012, we were F56, now we are F150. Back then I felt my opinion had value…today I feel the same. They are “moving the needle forward” ..they are staying in touch from top to bottom. I believe the infrastructure they have put in place is sound and will continue to move the system forward in brand recognition. Wayback has given us sound footing to work with…I, as the franchisee must get out there and engage the local community in which we work and serve. By doing this; we are improving the value of the Wayback brand; along with increasing the value of P&D Burgers Inc.” Phil Dzienciol | Multi-Unit Owner
“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 SchmitzWoodbury, MN | Franchise Owner
