Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries to Open Second Virginia Location
Virginia is for lovers and Chesapeake, Virginia is going to love Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries, the highly lauded All-American family-friendly diner, which is set to open its second Virginia location on Monday, May 26.
With the new restaurant located on 1445 Sam’s Drive, Suite 103 (located in the Walmart Way shopping center off Battlefield, Blvd.) residents of and visitors to Chesapeake will experience an inviting dining experience with fresh, never-frozen burgers, premium sliced cheesesteaks piled high on steamed hoagies, and frozen custard made in-house every day. With its open-grill design, the kitchen's dedication and care when hand-crafting meals is front and center.
"We are very excited to bring good times and great food to the fine folks in Chesapeake,” says Alex Tzekovsky, franchise owner for the Chesapeake restaurant. “Hwy 55 already has a stellar reputation for having the best burgers you’ll find anywhere and we can’t wait to open our doors for our new neighbors and old friends.” Tzekovsky is planning several other locations in the Hampton Roads area in the coming years. Hwy 55 also has a restaurant in Blacksburg.
While celebrating its 26th year in business, Hwy 55 has sold the rights to more than 1,000 franchise locations around the world. Hwy 55 has also signed franchise agreements for Texas, West Virginia, Louisiana, Kentucky and southern Indiana and Virginia in the past year. The brand plans to open approximately 25 locations in 2017.
“I founded Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries 25 years ago, to provide something that I felt was missing: great food, friendly service and honest value,” says Hwy 55 president Kenney Moore, who flipped every burger himself for the brand’s first two years of business. “Those principles continue today at all of our restaurants and we will look forward to treating more Virginians in Chesapeake and other areas in this great state in the coming years."
In keeping with Hwy 55’s continued mission to give back to the communities it enters, Hwy 55’s Andy’s Charitable Foundation and the Tzekovsky owner will donate 10 percent of sales from the restaurant’s first three days to the For Kids (www.forkidsva.org), one of the largest providers for homeless families in Virginia, touching over 37,000 lives annually through its holistic housing programs and extended services for families. Andy’s Charitable Foundation is Hwy 55’s most visible commitment to community involvement.
