At MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes, we love to have fun. And yet, we couldn’t be more serious about the food we serve. We’re talking fresh-baked buns, never-frozen beef, hand-cut fries, real ice cream shakes and other delicious nouns preceded by quality-assuring adjectives. We’re a place where Certified Angus Beef® and a chalkboard drawing wall can comfortably coexist. Because we believe having high-quality food doesn’t require you to have a low-quality personality.
We’re as fresh as we are fun. As intelligent as we are imaginative. And as picky as we are playful. Put simply, we believe making seriously good food doesn’t have to be such serious business.
MOOYAH was founded by industry veterans Rich Hicks and Todd Istre in 2007 in Plano, TX. Our very first restaurant was a franchise location, and we’ve continued to grow the brand with passionate and dedicated franchise partners ever since.
- In 2013 we opened our first international restaurant in Dubai and celebrated our 50th location.
- In 2016, we debuted a new menu featuring 100% Certified Angus Beef and added all-natural grilled chicken to complement our all-natural turkey and black-bean veggie options.
- We also opened our 100th restaurant with a nation-wide celebration, and can now be found in 19 states and 8 countries.
We’ve also racked up a few accolades along the way.
In 2017, MOOYAH was named to Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list, Franchise Times' Fast & Serious list of the smartest growing franchise brands, and was ranked #11 on Fast Casual Magazine’s annual Top 100 Movers & Shakers, a list the brand has been included on every year in the last ten years of rankings.
