Cheshire, CT— The options for a fresh, quality meal while you’re on the go are sometimes few and far between. For Woodland, Washington residents, however, they no longer need to choose between driving to a gas station and finding delicious fare. Wayback Burgers is proud to announce the opening of its new, combination restaurant and gas station convenience store, location.
The Woodland, WA store, located at 1955 Belmont Loop off exit 22 on I-5, is the first of its kind and shares an entrance to a convenience store housing Skippers and Docolicious. The restaurant convenience store, which opened on April 7, also includes a gas station on the premises. With a Wal-Mart store located at this exit, on the opposite side of I-5, this second interstate exit in Woodland is sure to please area residents looking for fresh, quality fare while taking care of errands and getting gas.
In fact, convenience is just the tip of the iceberg for Wayback Burgers Franchisee, Ejaz Chaudhry. Along with its unique setup, the Woodland, WA store also debuts Wayback Burgers’ first foray into drive through service. Under the leadership of Chaudhry, customers of this Wayback Burgers store are able to enjoy freshly cooked burgers and refreshing milkshakes on the go.
“I’m excited to bring even more expediency to the community of Woodland. With so much already going on at exit 21 off I-5, this store location can provide local residents with superb food and great amenities—all in one area and without the headache of traffic,” says Chaudhry.
Chaudhry, who is also an area Franchisee for Sizzler, Del Taco and Popeyes, has over 25 years of experience in the quick-service restaurant industry. His role as Owner and Operator of the Woodland, WA store will include daily operations as well as budgeting and marketing for the business. Chaudhry is also a Master Franchisee of Wayback Burgers’ Pakistan Territory. As a Pakistan native, and Master Franchisor of Sarpinos Pizzeria in Pakistan, Chaudhry understands the culture and the people of this Middle Eastern country, well.
“Pakistanis will certainly delight in the diversified menu and excellent customer service of Wayback Burgers. I look forward to growing the brand and serving such beloved food, both overseas as well as in the Northwest region of the US,” adds Chaudhry.
Chaudhry will be serving all of the standard menu options at his Woodland, WA store, which includes delicious burgers, cooked to order and made from 100 percent ground beef, available as a single, classic double, triple and triple-triple (nine) patty; Wayback Burger’s famously rich, thick milkshakes, crispy and grilled chicken sandwiches; veggie burgers, turkey burgers, fresh salads; and freshly made sides including fries, onion rings and House-Made Chips.
Chaudhry has plans to open his first overseas Wayback Burgers store in Lahore, Pakistan later this year, in the fall of 2017. This location will include the standard menu as well as wraps and a few spicier options catering to the tastes of Pakistanis.
