Wayback Burgers, America’s Favorite Hometown Burger Joint and one of the nationa’s fastest-growing burger franchises, is celebrating a successful first year of their partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Through a series of programs, events and promotions, Wayback Burgers was able to raise $151,160.78 in one year. As a result of these efforts, Wayback Burgers has been nominated for the Franchising Gives Back Award from the International Franchise Association (IFA).
The exciting partnership was initially launched in July 2018 and has benefited the national Boys & Girls Clubs of America organization as well as local chapters throughout the U.S. Wayback Burgers and their franchisees have pledged to make an annual donation of up to $150,000 with a minimum of $100,000 for two years from the launch date. Boys & Girls Clubs of America is dedicated to helping young people reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
Fundraising efforts have included an ongoing program through which a portion of every burger and sandwich sold at Wayback Burgers restaurants nationwide is donated to Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Through this initiative alone, Wayback has been able to raise over $118,000.
Most recently, Wayback Burgers hosted a national Milkshake Naming Contest. As part of this exciting contest, members of Boys & Girls Clubs across the country submitted unique milkshake recipes and corresponding names. Wayback Burgers narrowed down the recipes to the top three ideas and then let Wayback Burgers’ fans vote for their favorite flavor. The winner was the Caramel Cinnamon Toast Crunch Milkshake, which will be available as a limited-time offer starting August 1.
“We are thrilled by the success of our first year of partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America,” says John Eucalitto, CEO of Wayback Burgers. “This organization is truly incredible. They work hard every day to help children in need in communities across the country. We are excited to build on this momentum as we move into year two of the partnership.”
