26 Years Young Hwy 55 Declares: "Join Us and The Nation Can be Ours."
At Hwy 55, we’re building a team of franchisees that can still roll up their sleeves to build a business. Whether it's a single or multiple restaurants or building out a region, our entire team stands ready to help you meet your aspirations.
Can You Do Well Here?
Our best franchisees have some combination of these three factors that have driven successful operators in our franchise system:
- A commitment to people, quality food & guest service
- Strong business experience
- Restaurant industry know-how
Bring us your life experience, your positive attitude and a desire to grow people and your business. If you don't always make everything about you, you'll thrive here.
People and Service Make Hwy 55 A Better Restaurant Concept for You
Our magic exists in people and service: two critical elements deep within our company culture. And when done well make for a delightful guest dining experience. That’s everyone’s goal at Hwy 55. Each day better than the next; each meal served fast, hot, tasty and with a smile.
We’ll teach you our secrets for taking care of your people who, in turn, will shower your guests with smiles, great food and a “come on back and see us again” attitude in everything they do.
You'll learn how to build a team of dozens or hundreds imbued with an almost evangelical zeal to serve guests great hand-crafted fresh meals made to order day after day.
Snap Up Great Locations and Territories Nationwide
Join us. We’re growing quickly with 135 operating and over 1,000 locations under development. A proven business model (25 + years of constant improvement) sits ready for execution in your hands. Our same-store restaurant sales are rising in an era of restaurant closings and sales declines.
Our Culture Governs Who Joins our Family
Hwy 55 associates strive to put others ahead of self. We'll show you how NOT making it always about you, creates success without limits. In a business context this means putting our guests (creating the best food and experience possible) and our associates (those doing the onstage or front line work) ahead of our interests. Putting guests and associates first has sustained a great company, collectively positioning Hwy 55 to thrive well into the future.
The Business: What We Do Everyday
Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries is a retro-themed diner. We feature fresh, never-frozen hand-pattied hamburgers, cheeseburgers, house-made frozen custard, salads and other classic favorites (cheesesteaks, hot dogs, fries and shakes) in a fun, open-kitchen setting. Founded in Goldsboro, NC in 1991, Hwy 55 reflects founder Kenney Moore’s commitment to authentic hospitality and fresh food.
"It was extremely important that we took our time to nail down and really perfect the franchise system before expanding beyond our region. Now we have the opportunity to expand our proven system into markets that are starving for our concept." — Kenney Moore, Hwy 55 Founder & CEO
