In a recent interview with the Associated PressDoug Wilmarth, president of MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes, discussed how the brand is growing despite supply chain issues and inflation. MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes is an 80-plus-unit fast-casual, “better burger” concept committed to providing the best tasting burgers possible regardless of economic challenges. 

According to Wilmarth, MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes is facing higher prices for the 100% Certified Angus Beef® it uses in its burgers and supplies for the brand's non-GMO potato and multigrain buns that are baked in-house daily. However, despite inflation and supply chain issues, the Plano-based burger concept is extremely optimistic about the future.

“We are big believers in American consumers and the American economy,” Wilmarth said.

In fact, MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes plans to open at least 20 new locations in 2022 and has signed multiple multi-unit franchise agreements across the country, including its largest deal ever in Florida.
