A Time-Tested, Proven Concept

"Those fast-casual better-burger guys best watch out: Hwy 55 has drawn a roadmap to success." - Full Service Restaurant Magazine (click here for the full article)

Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries has been serving up good times and great food since 1991. We’ve achieved a lot in the last 24 years, growing to over 120 restaurants across North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, Ohio, Texas, Florida, Denmark, and the United Arab Emirates, with hundreds more locations scheduled to open in the next 7 years. During that time, our mission has remained the same: to provide each guest with world-class service and fresh food in a family atmosphere.

Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries fits a niche between fast food and casual dining, offering the customer the best benefits of both segments. We provide the convenience of fast food, with rapid response times and an affordable menu, but with a twist: our freshly-made food is a much tastier alternative to your typical frozen, pre-cooked hamburgers and french fries.

Hwy 55 franchisees benefit from:

  • Limited menu with widespread appeal
  • Several store design/location options
  • An efficient operational system
  • Strong online/on-site training & marketing programs
  • Access to our network of hand-picked food vendors
  • Ongoing support from a dedicated franchise team
  • A firm foundation for success
