RBR Staff Writer Published 12 November 2013

Mooyah Burgers, Fries & Shakes, a US-based fast-casual restaurant chain, announced an extensive plan to expand in Midwest by opening new outlets in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Illinois.

As part of the development plan, the company has partnered with Ardag Tachian and Scott Adams.

In Ohio, Ardag Tachian and Scott Adams plan to eventually open a total of 27 restaurants, with focus on Toledo, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati.

In Texas, the duo plans to open total of 21 restaurants in Grand Rapids, Lansing and Detroit.

Recently, the pair sold a four-unit development deal to a franchisee in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, while the first restaurant under the deal is slated to open in 2014, with one opening every nine to 12 months thereafter.

Tachian and Adams plan to open at least four additional restaurants in the state, with two projected for Madison.

In Indiana, they are planning to open a total of 10 Mooyah restaurants over the next five to seven years, with a focus on Indianapolis, Fort Wayne and South Bend.

In Illinois, the development agents have already sold franchises, and are looking at a total of 28 restaurants in the next five to seven years, with a primary focus on Chicago and at least one in Rockford, one in Peoria, and one in Bloomington.
