Wayback opening 14th Texas unit

Wayback Burgers is opening a location in Allen, Texas at 380 E. Bethany Dr., making its 14th in Texas.

Slated to open summer of 2022, the restaurant will have a lighter and brighter elevated dine-in experience as well as a modernized kitchen visible through glass windows and a pass-through, according to a company press release. Furnishings will also include a variety of seating options, including upholstered banquettes, booths and floating and community tables.

“With operations in 34 states and new restaurants extending our footprint nationwide, it is an exciting time to be a part of the Wayback Burgers family,” President Patrick Conlin said in the release.

Franchisee Zalak Patel said the chain’s rapid growth and expansion initially attracted him to the brand.

“The support systems to help guide us along the way and the opportunity for owning additional locations in the future is what assured us that Wayback Burgers was the right path for us,” he said in the release.

Founded in 1991 in Newark, Delaware, Wayback Burgers operates in 34 states with over 166 locations nationally and internationally in Brunei, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Netherlands, Manitoba, Canada and Ireland.
