MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes, a fast casual, “better burger” restaurant franchise, is opening its second Sacramento metropolitan area location with its Franchise Partner Mo Sina. The restaurant is located at 8251 Bruceville Road, Suite 150 and will open on May 24th.
“I first chose to own a MOOYAH because I fell in love with the product,” said Sina. “I love the food we serve here. It’s high quality. We use Certified Angus Beef® and Idaho potatoes for our freshly made fries.”
Sina is no stranger to the food and beverage scene, in fact he’s worked in the industry for the last 29 years. And after mastering restaurant operations in a series of management roles, he decided it was time to open his own restaurant. Once experiencing success and his first MOOYAH location becoming a staple in Rocklin, Sina wanted to expand his franchise presence in Sacramento.
“We are looking forward to watching Mo continue his success as he expands to become a multi-unit Franchise Owner,” said MOOYAH’s VP of Operations, Mike Sebazco. “He is a strong addition to our franchise system and has done a great job running the Rocklin location he took over. His years of experience and determined attitude combined with his love for our brand make him the ideal person to expand our brand throughout the Sacramento area.”
Last year, MOOYAH opened its first restaurant featuring the new prototype that showcases new dining zones and seating arrangements, purposeful third-party and to-go shelving, a closed kitchen, digital menu boards, and a new logo. The Strawberry Creek restaurant will be one of the first 15 locations nationally to be designed with the updated look.
At MOOYAH, Guests have the advantage of choosing from a variety of bun options, such as baked-in-house artisan potato or multigrain wheat non-GMO buns and hand-crafted lettuce buns called Iceburgers to accompany the never-frozen, 100 percent Certified Angus Beef® brand burgers, all natural Jennie-O turkey and Dr. Praeger’s black bean vegan burgers. Each gourmet burger can be customized with six cheeses, Applewood smoked bacon and sliced avocado, along with nine free veggie toppings and ten free sauces.
MOOYAH’s hand-cut fries come together in a six-step process that takes a total of 24 hours to completely prepare. A delightful combination of constant attention and a little magic help transform U.S. #1 Idaho potatoes into perfect, crisp-on-the-outside and fluffy-on-the-inside fries. Guests also have the choice of savory sweet potato fries. Never one to forget dessert, MOOYAH offers 100 percent real ice cream shakes, allowing Guests to choose from seven flavors ranging from vanilla and Hershey’s chocolate to Reese’s, Oreo and more.
