For MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes, 13 years in business means constantly evolving to match changing consumer preferences and improve unit-level economics for Franchise Owners. With innovation comes industry recognition, as the brand was recently listed on Franchise Gator's 2020 Top 100 Franchises, a ranking of the top franchise and business opportunities.

“This recognition from Franchise Gator came at the perfect time, as we kick off 2020 with a focus on growing the brand with new franchise partners,” said MOOYAH President Tony Darden. “It is always rewarding to receive a nod from the industry, particularly from our peers in franchising. We look forward to a year filled with innovation, growth and inviting new members into our franchise family.”

The new prototype will feature community-minded, flexible seating areas, a designated area for pickup orders, digital menu boards and back-of-house kitchen display systems, as well as a modernized logo. MOOYAH will unveil the first of the 14 new prototype locations slated to open this year in Hoover, Alabama. Ten existing locations will be remodeled in 2020, and all existing locations will feature the new design by the end of 2024.

In addition to its new restaurant design, MOOYAH recently added its line of Lifestyle Burgers that align with consumer preferences to its menu. Options include The Paleo, The Keto, The Low Cal, The Vegetarian, The Gluten-Free, and this January, The Vegan joined the line-up.

“We are committed to meeting our Guests where they are, whether that is providing a menu item that matches their dietary preferences or making our food conveniently available for dine-in, carryout and delivery,” said Natalie Anderson Liu, MOOYAH Vice President of Brand. “2020 will be a huge year for the brand as we begin converting our locations to the new design and service model and focus on continued innovation for our Franchise Owners and Guests.”
