Apr 03, 2014

MOOYAH is opening its first Canadian franchise location in North Vancouver this spring. The Texas-born franchise will bring its better burgers to the west coast as early as late March, to be followed by several more locations to open in the Metro Vancouver area later this year.

The restaurant franchise chain was rated #8 in Fast Casual Magazine’s Top 100 Movers and Shakers Report, and won the Top 50 Franchise Satisfaction Award several years in a row.

Since its inception in 2007, the burger franchise has opened 57 stores across 14 American States, and it is on target to reach over 100 stores up and running by the end of 2014. Additionally, there are currently 2 stores operating in the Middle East with additional 6 stores under development in that market that are scheduled to open this year. In addition to the North Vancouver store opening this Spring, another MOOYAH franchise will also be opening in Winnipeg by early summer and there are six more units under development for that market. Rapid expansion is also planned and will be underway soon for Alberta. MOOYAH has awarded over 300 units to date and is on track to become an international brand.

Chris Moradian is no stranger to franchising. He brought Quizno’s to Canada in 1997 and spearheaded the company’s expansion throughout Canada until 2003. “It is the simplicity of our menu, quality of our product and our focus on providing exceptional customer service to our guests which has resulted in successful franchise partners operating multiple units and fueling MOOYAH’s rapid growth since 2009”. Over the next five years, MOOYAH plans to open up to 50 stores across Canada. The company will initially focus its development in Central and Western Canada however the company is currently recruiting and is accepting applications from qualified candidates from Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritimes for Development Agents and Multi-unit operators who wish to reserve exclusive territories in these markets.

MOOYAH is a fast casual “Better Burger” restaurant concept serving mouth-watering fresh burgers, hand cut fresh fries and handcrafted 100% ice cream shakes. Every MOOYAH burger is made to order with fresh, never frozen unique blend of 100% Canadian beef, seared and seasoned to perfection . The buns are baked fresh in-house, and customers choose from a wide range of toppings and specialty sauces. MOOYAH’s hand cut fries go through six different processes to give them their delicious, one-of-a-kind flavour.

The family oriented restaurant offers a fresh, fun and vibrant atmosphere with excellent Guest service and a contagious energy.
