Posted on August 17, 2015
Nation's Restaurant News, the industry's premier trade magazine, announced today that Hwy 55 is one of its "Next 20" brands—chains that are poised to make a leap in growth over the coming year.
In choosing Hwy 55, the company was noted for its willingness to guide entry-level employees to a path of franchisee ownership:
"At Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries the strategy of aiding employees interested in becoming franchisees helped the brand achieve Latest- and Preceding-Year increases in total units of 1.8 percent and 10.1 percent, respectively. Spokesman Andy Moore said that about 60 locations, or roughly half of the system, now are in the hands of employees-turned-franchisees."
