Wahlburgers Gets Green Light From St. Charles
Looks like Illinois might be getting a new burger joint, but not just any burger joint. Oh no, we're talking about a celebrity burger joint. If you have never heard of this place, give the name a look and see if anything clicks. Don't worry, I'll wait.
Ok. The wait is over. Wahlburgers owner is none other than Donnie Wahlberg. Brother of "Marky" Mark Wahlberg.The family owned company has restaurants in sixteen states and they're hoping St. Charles will play host to the newest location and make that number seventeen.
According to the Kane County Chronicle, "St. Charles would be the first Illinois location for Wahlburgers and the company's first restaurant to be built from the ground up. Other Wahlburgers opened in retrofitted existing buildings."
There is still work to do on that front though. If the City Council approves the final development plan, construction of the Wahlburgers restaurant could begin this summer.
My body probably doesn't need another spot to slam greasy burgers at, but you know what? MERICA BABY!
