Mooyah Burgers, Fries & Shakes, a nationwide fast-casual burger joint, is coming to the Hollywood Plaza on International Drive in Orlando, Fla.
The restaurant will move into a 4,200-square foot space in the Plaza, opening in 2019. Mooyah Burgers serves made-to-order beef, turkey and veggie burgers, all-beef hot dogs, hand-cut French fries, shakes made from real ice cream and more.
“We had identified this opportunity some time ago, thinking Mooyah would excel on I-Drive,” said Tareq Qarman, franchiser, owner of Mooyah and CEO of Ben & Jerry’s Orlando. “Mooyah has an outstanding reputation and food quality, and we are taking it further, bringing an exciting video arcade within the space. It will be a real destination for families, friends, and parties!”
“There are a lot of players in the fast-casual burger space, but we really love Mooyah and their product,” said Joshua Wallack, who developed Hollywood Plaza with his father David, and operates Mango’s Orlando. “and unlike many others, they are customizing this space as an entertainment venue. It is important that guests on I-Drive feel like that are in Orlando and being entertained, and this kinetic design will do that. Burgers, high-quality shakes and arcade games, what more could you want?”
This new restaurant was originally supposed to house Hulk Hogan’s Beach Shop. When asked about the new Mooyah location, Hogan said, “Brother, I’m having a blast, but things are changing and my travel schedule is about to ramp up big-time. I can’t reveal too much, but Josh [Wallack] told me about this opportunity, and he and Tareq are stark, raving Hulkamaniacs. I told them to build it and make me proud. I still have my I-Drive location where we are at with the Wallacks and things are great.”
