Wayback Burgers is gearing up for the 2018 “Driving Wayback to the Future” Franchisee Convention hosted at Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort in Uncasville, Connecticut, from October 21 through October 23.
Hundreds of Wayback Burgers representatives—executives, corporate team members, and franchisees from coast to coast, and around the globe—will attend the convention for three days. All attendees are hungry for updates on exciting new developments at Wayback Burgers, including the unveiling of a new-and-improved Wayback delivery system, and major announcements related to the company’s multi-faceted new partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA).
“We’ve been growing so fast that it’s critical to coordinate a franchisee convention so we can make sure, face-to-face, that we’re aligned for tremendous future growth and success,” says Wayback Burgers president John Eucalitto. “While each convention offers a fantastic opportunity for franchise partners to share best practices and lessons learned, this year’s convention is particularly special due to the big announcements we’re ready to share. It truly is a ‘can’t miss’ event for the entire Wayback Burgers family.”
One of the convention’s biggest highlights will be the unveiling of a new and improved Wayback Burgers food delivery system and app, which will help franchisees take even better advantage of the booming delivery trend occurring across America, and around the world. It’ll be even easier and more efficient for all franchisees to execute local deliveries—with better food quality for the consumer and better profitability for the franchisees.
Wayback Burgers will reveal the new food delivery system on Monday morning at the general session of the convention and leave it on display at the trade show all day—a perfect opportunity for all franchise partners, and local media members, to get a sneak peek at the revolutionary model.
Another significant moment at the convention will come when Wayback Burgers hands over a ceremonial check to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) for $18,000, reflecting proceeds from a fundraiser that the company and its franchisees conducted nationwide in August. BGCA operates after-school care programs nationally, and Wayback Burgers wholeheartedly believes in its quest to help young people, particularly those who need the most support, reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
The grant is only part of a powerful and multi-faceted new partnership between Wayback Burgers and BGCA, involving several major initiatives and fundraisers. For the next two years, for example, a portion of the proceeds from each burger or sandwich purchased at participating Wayback Burgers will be donated to the group. The company and its franchise partners are pledging an annual donation of up to $150,000, with a minimum of $100,000.
Wayback Burgers is also implementing a workforce-training program for members of BGCA and is planning on adding the organization’s logo on select packaging material and potentially team-member uniforms.
“For many years, Boys & Girls Clubs of America has represented the very best intentions—and results—among organizations that are dedicated to helping our kids,” Eucalitto saus. “Its commitment to mentor and uplift young people across America is a mission that we fully support.”
Chad Royal-Pascoe, national vice president of corporate and cause partnerships for Boys & Girls Clubs who will speak at the convention on Sunday night, said, “Wayback Burgers is helping ensure that BGCA members have the resources they need to have a successful school experience and a successful life. The company’s support will mean a lot for kids and teens in building toward a greater future.”
