Wayback Burgers set to open Folsom locationBy: Bill Sullivan, Associate Publisher
They are known across the country for their famous nine-patty burgers and now they are coming to Folsom. Wayback Burgers is set to open in the next month at 1300 East Bidwell Street.
Headquartered in Cheshire, Connecticut, Wayback Burgers was founded in 1991, originally as Jake’s Hamburgers. Today, the franchise has 120 locations internationally. While the new Folsom location will be its latest edition, the company has locations as far away as North Africa and eateries in 28 different countries.
Branding itself as a casual eatery with a hearty menu that includes a variety of sandwiches, hot dogs and milkshakes, which are all secondary to the chain’s famous burgers. The burger joint is known for its yesteryear theme, replicating the soda fountains of the 1950’s, complete with dishes served in red baskets and old fashioned-style wrapping paper.
According to the restaurant chain, Wayback Burgers is focused on creating great memories. Their locations feature a warm and inviting décor that welcomes families and groups of friends to “come in, put their elbows on the table and simply be themselves.”
Known for its fresh foods and old fashioned burgers, Wayback Burgers most talked about item is their “Triple, Triple,” a burger that is stacked nine deep in all beef patties with nine slices of American cheese, lettuce and tomato. The beast of a burger is 5,100 calories alone and is the center of attention annually in a nationwide contest that awards several thousand dollars to whoever can eat it the fastest.
Interior construction is underway at the new Folsom location, which will take over their 1,597 square-foot space that was once occupied by the Saffron Grill. Hiring for shift managers and other positions is currently underway. Folsom burger lovers should be able to enjoy the fresh fare in before the end of April.
The Folsom location is the second to open in the region as Roseville recently became a new franchise site as well. Those interested in employment at the new location are encouraged to apply online at waybackburgers.com.
