ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Wahlburgers Orlando is officially open for business. Founded by Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg and celebrity brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, Wahlburgers debuted in October 2011 in Hingham, Massachusetts.
A VIP event was held on Thursday in Orlando, attended by Mark and Paul. Wahlburgers Orlando is located at 200 South Orange Avenue at the corner of Church Street and Orange Avenue.
"People may come into the restaurant, because of myself or Donnie, but the reason why they're gonna come back is because of the experience that Paul provides," Mark explained. "As far as starting out in Orlando, we met great operators that are very good at what we do and my job is to make sure that we drive as much attention to this location and area as possible, and it's growing rapidly and it's going to be a great start for us."
The Wahlbergs have joined with well-known Central Florida restaurateur Manny Garcia and his funding partners to make the Orlando location a reality.
