Wahlburgers, the Boston burger franchise owned by celebrity brothers Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg, is coming to Las Vegas.
The company announced this morning that it will open its first restaurant in the valley in early 2015. It plans to open two more within the next five years.
A location for the restaurant has yet to be announced, but the company said it is looking at “premiere” spots with high traffic. Wahlburgers signed the franchise agreement with Vegas American Hospitality Inc.
“We are glad to have found partners who will uphold our values and create something really special for Las Vegas residents and people from all over the world who visit this incredible destination,” co-founder and Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg said.
The company describes its restaurants as fast-casual and says they are styled to emphasize the brothers’ journey from neighborhood kids to international chef and entertainment superstars.
The brothers’ flagship restaurant in Hingham, Mass., is the subject of “Wahlburgers,” an A&E Network reality series focusing on the franchise that began early this year.
