Another burger joint is looking to make its mark on the Phoenix community.
Plano, Texas-based Mooyah Burgers, Fries and Shakes’ Director of Business Development Tim Markle said the company is in talks with franchisors about opening its first Arizona location in the Phoenix area.
Markle said they are looking into opening shop in Phoenix, Glendale and Scottsdale, and that the Valley could hold anywhere from 15 to 20 locations. Markle said planting roots in Phoenix would cause a domino effect of opening up locations throughout the Southwest.
Mooyah has 95 locations in seven countries and 23 states, and is in the process of opening 30 more locations.
Markle said what will attract Phoenicians to Mooyah when compared to other burger joints like In-N-Out Burger, Shake Shack and Hopdoddy is that their brand is outdoors focused, with large patios and burger alternatives like a black bean or turkey burger.
“We need to be in places where people enjoy sitting outside and relaxing,” Markle said. “People who live an outdoorsy lifestyle are attracted to our brand.”
