Wayback Burgers - Franchise


The Wayback Burgers philosophy is reflected in more than our approach to honest, delicious, uncomplicated food. It also shines through in the way we work with our franchisees.

We pride ourselves on our evolving culture – incorporating good old-fashioned values of hard work, guest service and unrivaled franchisee support, while leaning toward the future with technological advances that solidify us as an industry leader.

We also provide each of our franchisees with an unrivaled experience that includes a playbook for operational excellence, and unrelenting guidance and support you’d be hard-pressed to find with other brands. We lead our competitors for a reason. We won’t be beat, and we stop at nothing to help put our franchisees on the path to success.

Failure is not in our DNA.


Respect is at the core of everything we do. Our mission is to create a culture of belonging by uniting people through the love of comfort food. We provide experiences that grow relationships and welcome people from all backgrounds.

Achieving our mission starts with “The Way.” This is at the foundation of who we are: the way we treat our guests, source our ingredients, build relationships with our franchisees, and commit to doing the right thing.


  1. ALL IN - Create solutions that benefit guests, franchisees, and the brand.
  2. THINK TIMELESS - Make choices that never go out of style.
  3. STAY TRUE - Provide genuine experiences every day.
  4. TAKE ACTION - Do better, and do it together.
  5. GO WAY BACK - Nostalgia is at the heart of everything we do.


We understand the level of commitment required to start and build a successful restaurant. We also recognize the challenge of doing so while trying to implement an effective local marketing strategy.
