Mooyah Burgers, Fries & Shakes, a fast casual, “better burger” chain, is ready to satisfy the taste buds of burger enthusiasts in Tiverton, Rhode Island. The brand’s first ever casino restaurant opened at the beginning of September in the Tiverton Casino Hotel at 777 Tiverton Casino Blvd. The Tiverton Mooyah represents a continued commitment to growth through non-traditional locations in order to bring the Mooyah experience to more hungry fans.
The location not only marks the first casino restaurant for Mooyah but is also the first location in the state of Rhode Island where the company sees potential for increased expansion with qualified franchisees.
“We are excited to bring the best burger you’ll ever put in your mouth to Rhode Island for the first time,” says Michael Mabry, president and chief operating officer of Mooyah. “We have been well received in the northeast and this new location inside the Tiverton Casino Hotel is an example of the innovative approach we have to finding viable real estate opportunities where our franchisees can thrive."
The Tiverton Casino Hotel location is owned by franchisee BD Patel and was led by Mooyah development agent Jay Hummer.
“There has been a lot of buzz in the Tiverton community since they first broke ground on the casino and hotel a little over a year ago and we are thrilled to be a part of it,” said Hummer. “This gives us the chance to serve a variety of people both from the area and coming in town to visit, which helps continue our mission to spread the Mooyah experience even further throughout the northeast.”
