The Badger state’s burger fans gained a new MOOYAH to satisfy their taste buds this week! The restaurant makes the fourth owned by the Bergeson family.
Josh and Lucas, along with their father Randy Bergeson, opened Wisconsin’s first MOOYAH in 2015. Prior to joining MOOYAH, Randy opened three of his own Subways, and it wasn’t until Lucas graduated from college that the idea of the family working together came about. The trio explored different franchise options, but ultimately chose MOOYAH because they loved the simple, customizable menu and the idea of bringing the brand into an untapped market, giving them boundless opportunities for expansion.
And expand, they did! Since 2015 the family has opened locations in Madison downtown, Fitchburg, Sun Prairie, and recently, Madison Portofino Place. MOOYAH’s appeal to young families initially attracted the Bergeson’s to the brand, and they have continued to see their locations become family favorites in Madison over the last five years.
“MOOYAH has been so well-received by the community since we opened our first restaurant. We attribute a lot of our success to the people we have promoted from within and our team’s commitment to exceed our Guests’ expectations day in and day out,” said Josh Bergeson. “Our general managers are truly a great extension of our ownership group and are a part of our MOOYAH family. We would not be able to continue to expand and thrive if it wasn’t for them.”
