About Wayback Burgers

Wayback Burgers began as a hamburger stand in Delaware in 1991. It was only seven years later in 2008 that the brand started offering franchise opportunities. Today, Wayback Burgers operates in over 40 countries around the world and counting. This is driven by a growing demand for premium burgers in the fast-casual dining market. 

Are you ready to join them on their journey to expansion? With Wayback Burgers, you’ll join an honest and uncomplicated brand that will offer you extensive support and experience with a proven system to take your own business to the next level. Take a look at their franchise offering and more below.

What They Offer

Wayback Burgers operates on five founding principles. The first of these is to go all-in by offering solutions that benefit guests, franchisees and the brand. The second is to think timeless and to offer options and make choices that never go out of style. Thirdly, the brand provides genuine experiences every day. In addition, they seek to do better and to do this together. And finally, true to their name, the brand seeks to “go way back” by placing nostalgia at the heart of everything they do. 

With this in mind, Wayback Burgers offers honest, delicious and uncomplicated food. Products sourced are of the highest quality and the brand is always looking for new ways to improve through the efforts of its R&D team. The menu is kept fresh and updated and only the freshest ingredients are used. Traditional menu items are honoured and although their mainstay is burgers, they also offer a diverse menu.

The Franchise Offering

The Wayback Burgers has an evolving culture which weaves the values of hard work, guest service and franchisee support together with technological advancements. At present, some of the locations in the pipeline for development include locations in Canada, Brunei, the Middle East, North Africa, Morocco, Pakistan, Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany, South Africa, Dominican Republic and Japan.

Who Are They Looking For?

Although many of the Wayback Burgers franchisees come from all walks of life, one thing they have in common is that they share a passionate dedication to their community, team and food. Ideally, the perfect franchisee will be one that wants to grow with the brand and eventually take on multiple units. According to the brand, previous ownership is not a requirement. However, they prefer that candidates have leadership experience and a keen interest in the day-to-day details of running a business.

The Cost

The cost of a Wayback Burgers franchise involves an initial investment of $35,000 although this fee can be discounted for multiple units, depending on a variety of conditions and criteria. Apart from the franchise fee, the overall initial investment will range from $500,000 to $600,000. This amount includes items such as the restaurant construction, kitchen equipment, furniture, signage, POS system as well as opening food inventory. 

Prospective franchisees should have a high credit score and access to liquid capital of $200,000. You are also welcome to bring a partner on board to help you split or share the costs.

The royalty fee is 5% of gross sales, and excludes sales tax. The advertising fee is 4% of gross sales and is evenly distributed between national and local marketing campaigns.


Although Wayback Burgers does not offer financing, the brand has a broad list of recommended lenders that it can share with interested candidates.
