The charming town of Guilford, CT became more delicious on August 24, 2020 because brothers-in-law Kal and Nesh Patel opened the town’s first ever MOOYAH! When the partners began looking into franchising opportunities, our fresh products and best-in-class experience impressed them immensely, and the close connection between Franchise Owners and the corporate team inspired them to own a MOOYAH.
“We are passionate about wanting to provide the families in our communities with a great dining experience that the whole family can enjoy,” Nesh explained to Franchising.com.
The Guilford location marks the fourth MOOYAH in Connecticut and is one of the first nationally to boast our newly updated store design. “We are thrilled to be opening a new location with another set of new Franchise Owners, Kal and Nesh,” MOOYAH President Tony Darden said to Franchising.com. “We are looking forward to growing our presence by adding our fourth location in Connecticut and further strengthening our presence in the Northeast. We plan to continue to serve communities in the state by adding five additional locations and 125 jobs across Connecticut.”
In February 2020, we opened our first location featuring our restaurant redesign that highlights new dining zones, purposeful 3rd party delivery and to-go shelving, a closed kitchen, digital menu boards and an updated logo.
MOOYAH’s commitment to giving our Guests the best burger franchise experience ever doesn’t just stop at our brand new look, the Limited Time Offer Campfire Burger and S’mores Shake made their Guilford debut at the store’s opening. The Campfire Burger is a quarter pound of fresh, never frozen Certified Angus Beef®, housemade Potato Chips, cheddar cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, grilled onions and Hickory Smoke Campfire sauce nestled between our baked in-house potato buns, while the S’mores Shake is made with real ice cream, marshmallow, chocolate flakes, chocolate syrup and graham cracker pieces. Whether you’re stopping into our all-new Guilford, CT location, or any of our other MOOYAH restaurants nationwide, burger fans that crave a delicious meal will be treated to the best burger, fry and shake experience ever!
