Hwy 55 to Open 3rd Birmingham-Area Restaurant in Hoover
Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries is continuing its impressive growth strategy by expanding its Alabama presence and again bringing its All-American, retro-themed diner to the Birmingham area—this time in Hoover.
The new restaurant, the fifth in Alabama, will open on March 13 and will add 30 jobs to the community.
Located at 3230 Galleria Circle, Suite 101 (behind the Galleria Mall), Hwy 55 will provide residents and visitors with an inviting dining experience featuring 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 handcrafting meals is front and center.
"I feel in love with the Hwy 55 brand the moment I walked in the door. After I opened our Tuscaloosa location two years ago, I knew I wanted to bring good times and great food to the fine folks in the Birmingham area,” says Derrick Maddox, Hwy 55’s master franchisee for Alabama. “We are thrilled to be a part of the Hoover community. The people here are polite and helpful so we know Hwy 55’s family-friendly concept and dedication to authentic hospitality will fit right in.”
While celebrating its 27th 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 West Virginia, Louisiana, Kentucky and southern Indiana and Virginia in the past year. The brand plans to open approximately 25 locations in 2018.
“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 people in Hoover 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 will donate 10% of sales from the restaurant’s first three days to Pink Topps. Andy’s Charitable Foundation is Hwy 55’s most visible commitment to community involvement.
