Why Own a MOOYAH?
Officially, MOOYAH is a “better burger” concept, but that categorization doesn’t do the brand justice. MOOYAH has created the best burger, the type you might find at a fine-dining restaurant, if those establishments allowed Guests to fully customize their burgers with a nearly endless combination of options. And unlike the stuffy, expensive restaurants people often associate with elevated burgers, MOOYAH provides a fun, accessible, family-friendly environment where Guests can relax and enjoy themselves.
MOOYAH believes in being the best at what it does — providing the best burger, the best environment and the best franchise opportunity for Franchise Owners. That last part is where it gets really exciting. MOOYAH has refined its operational model to ensure Franchise Owner success, starting with a low-cost buildout that lets Franchise Owners get up and running for a fraction of the cost of competing franchises. From there, MOOYAH offers Franchise Owners ongoing, dedicated, personalized support in every aspect of the business, from real estate selection to marketing to technology to profit-and-loss guidance. All of that means a better-running business, a faster return on investment and a brighter, more profitable future for Franchise Owners.
$3.5 million — the average investment costs at certain high-price-tag burger competitors.
$477,981–$989,793 — the total investment cost to open a MOOYAH.
$1,101,541* — MOOYAH’s average unit sales among the top quartile.

MOOYAH is growing, and growing fast. In 2020, the franchise established eight new units in markets across the country, including the franchise’s biggest location yet in Orlando. As the brand’s footprint continues to grow, the industry is taking notice. In 2020, Franchise Times included MOOYAH in its Top Franchises of the Year list. MOOYAH is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after brands in franchising, but for ambitious Franchise Owners, MOOYAH still offers plenty of room for growth. The franchise has a range of available territories all across the country, many of which are primed to support multiple units. Today, MOOYAH offers prospective Franchise Owners the rare opportunity to partner with a franchise that has widespread brand recognition and Guest loyalty while still maintaining substantial room for growth.

Why Invest In a Burger Restaurant?
The hamburger has been a staple of American dining for a century, and that’s not changing anytime soon. Americans love burgers — we eat approximately 50 billion of them every year. Sixty-eight percent of those burgers are eaten by millennials, who make up the largest demographic of consumers and are at the height of their spending power.
Seventy-nine percent of consumers prefer grass-fed over conventional beef, and 82% said they'd pay more for premium ingredients. And all beef is not created equally; three out of five consumers want to know where their beef came from.
So how does that translate to sales? Each year, Americans spend $205.36 billion on sandwiches, and nearly half of those sales — a whopping $90.57 billion — were spent on burgers, making up 44% of total sandwich sales. No wonder the burger category remains, year after year, one of the biggest segments in franchising.
