Mark Wahlberg's burger chain coming to Dubai
Marky Mark to bring Wahlburgers burger chain to the Middle East. Details here…
Fan of meat served between bread? Also a fan of Marky-Mark? And the Wahlberg brothers’ brand of Irish-American charm in general?
Well, we have good news for you then – the Wahlberg brothers’ burger chain is coming to Dubai.
When he’s not being a Hollywood A-lister, Mark Wahlberg is busy helping his brothers Donnie (from Blue Bloods) and Paul (the chef) with their new burger chain Wahlburgers.
A glimpse of what the burgers look like. How good do those sweet potato tots look? We’re actually salivating.
For a year now the Wahlberg brothers have been the focus of a reality show Wahlburgers, which gives viewers behind the scenes access of the day-to-day grind of setting up and expanding a burger chain. With over 70 restaurants already under their belt, the Wahlberg brothers have announced that they now have their sights set on the Middle East.
Rick Vanzura, CEO of Wahlburgers told PR Newswire, ‘We are thrilled to continue our growth with outstanding franchise partners. The reality of bringing Wahlburgers to our friends in the Middle East is extremely exciting”.
We’ve all heard the tales of the plethora of celebrity restaurants to be opened in Dubai, including Gordon Ramsey’s Bread Street Kitchen, and Tom Aiken’s Pots, Pans & Boards – but we weren’t expecting Marky Mark.
The deal that’s been signed will see 20 new Wahlberg establishments in the Middle East. Worldwide the brothers have 66 locations under development that will open in the next several years.
Here are some videos of the family trying to figure out the Wahlburgers jingle:
