Wahlberg brothers to open Wahlburgers locations in Las Vegas
UPI News Service, 09/25/2014
Donnie, Mark and Paul Wahlberg plan to open three Wahlburgers locations in Las Vegas.
The restaurants serve gourmet burgers, and feature full bars with special "walhcoctions" cocktails. The brothers grew up in Boston, and opened the original Wahlburgers in Hingham, Mass., in 2011. Paul Wahlberg serves as the executive chef at the restaurant.
"My brothers and I have been committed to doing things right with high standards of quality from the beginning," Paul said in a statement. "We are glad to have found partners who will uphold our values and create something really special for Las Vegas residents and people from all over the world who visit this incredible location."
The first Las Vegas location is scheduled to open in early 2015, with two more restaurants to follow by 2020. The establishments will exceed 4,400 square feet, and will feature outdoor patios and take-out.
A&E reality series Wahlburgers follows the brothers as they work at the Hingham location and make plans for expansion. The program premiered in January, and airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on A&E.
