MOOYAH opened its first location in Georgia, bringing high quality burgers, fries and shakes to the ATL on January 4, 2022. The restaurant is located at 1400 Veterans Memorial Highway SE, Suite 150 in Mableton. The Atlanta area opening marks the first MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes restaurant for Franchise Owners, Keylan and Erika Mitchell, and the team is excited to enrich their community by giving back while offering Guests delicious meals.
“We can’t wait for our community to experience MOOYAH for the first time,” said Keylan Mitchell. “Erika and I chose MOOYAH because it’s a family friendly, community driven brand that serves the highest quality, best tasting burgers, fries and shakes we have ever had. We know MOOYAH will be a great addition to Mableton and we look forward to becoming the burger destination for local residents and employees.”
The Mitchells will be donating a percentage of their opening week’s sales to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta (BGCMA), specifically the Michael A. Grant and Tony A. Matthews clubs. BGCMA is an organization that provides voluntary after-school programs for young people creating safe, inclusive and engaging environments.
“Erika and I are extremely excited to partner with the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta for MOOYAH Mableton’s opening week,” Keylan said. “This partnership is near and dear to our hearts because both of us are the children of educators who emphasized the value of a quality public education. Supporting the after school academic, leadership and sports programs at the Michael A. Grant and Tony A. Matthews clubs exemplifies the type of investments we planned as owners and we thank our community for their support.”
The Mitchells wanted to make sure that they invested in a franchise concept with a mission. They wanted to enrich their community with high-quality, delicious food options and provide employment and mentorship opportunities to the young people who are just starting out in their careers. Keylan stressed that this was more than just a business opportunity – the couple intends to support local schools, youth development programs and charitable organizations through the business.
“Keylan and Erika are a great addition to the MOOYAH franchise family, and we are looking forward to watching them spearhead the brand’s growth in Georgia,” said Mike Sebazco, MOOYAH’s Executive Vice President of Operations and Development. “They have been a strong addition to our franchise system. Their years of business experience and determined attitude combined with their love for our brand and their community make them the ideal family to expand our brand into Atlanta.”
