About Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries
Hwy 55 makes fantastic food. So do many others. So what’s responsible for the explosive growth of recent years? How do you build a team of thousands with an almost evangelical zeal to serve guests great hand-crafted fresh meals made to order day after day? And strive for each associate to become the best person they can be?

Our roots are in people and service. Two concepts embedded in our company culture that when done correctly make the dining experience delightful for guests. That’s everyone’s goal at Hwy 55. Each day better than the next; each meal served fast, hot and tasty. 
Come Grow With Us
We’re growing quickly with over 1,000 locations operating or under development. Primarily based in the Southeastern states, we’re expanding across the rest of the country and internationally. A proven business model (25 + years of constant improvement) sits ready for execution in the right hands. Same-store restaurant sales are rising in an era of restaurant closings and sales declines. 
We’ve discovered the secrets to taking care of our people and in turn they shower our guests with smiles, great food and a “come on back and see us again” attitude in everything they do.

Our Values Govern Who Joins our Family and How We Operate
Hwy 55 as an organization strives to put others ahead of self. If it’s all about you, then only you can benefit. Your success will be limited. Your leadership hampered.
In a business context this means serving our guests (creating the best food and experience possible) and serving our associates (those doing the onstage or front line work) ahead of our “corporate”  interests. This attitude and resulting behavior has sustained and perpetuated a great company, collectively helping Hwy 55 thrive well into the future.
To realize this mission, our team is guided by several core values
1.  Be different / unafraid to go the road less traveled
                If you do as everyone else, you might as well be them; instead, be more.
2.  Complete honesty and integrity
                The building blocks without which trust and confidence wither and die.
3.  Continually exceed guest expectations
                Every positive “moment of truth” a guest experiences can contribute to a 
                future visit or great word-of-mouth in our communities.
4.  Never change core products
                Quality and consistency go hand-in-hand. Classics aren’t trendy and don’t go 
                out of style.
5.  We'll outwork our competitors and our mistakes
                If every day is a little bit better than the last, no one can catch us.

The Business
Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries is a retro-themed diner. We feature fresh, never-frozen hand-pattied hamburgers, cheeseburgers, house-made frozen custard, and other classic favorites (cheesesteaks, hot dogs, fries and shakes) in a fun, open-kitchen setting. Founded in Goldsboro, NC in 1991, Hwy 55 reflects founder Kenney Moore’s commitment to authentic hospitality and fresh food. 
Widely known throughout the region for its fresh food and service that delights, Hwy 55 has won’s “Best Burger” and was recently named a top 500 franchise in the United States by Entrepreneur magazine and a “Next 20” restaurant brand by Nation’s Restaurant News. 
Your Hwy 55 Plan will include distinctive signage, interior and exterior design, décor and color scheme. Your menu will include special recipes and items, including proprietary products and ingredients. 
Restaurant operations are governed by uniform standards, specifications and procedures to deliver quality and uniformity of product and guest experience. In addition, every franchisee is taught inventory, management and financial control procedures, including point-of-sale and tracking systems.
