The location is slated to open in June and will be located at 12632 S. Freeway on the Northwest corner of I-35 and McAlister Road.
“Burleson is a wonderful, growing community, and we’re eager to be part of it,” says McGuire. “We’re excited to support the schools and youth sports teams and really get to know the families that make Burleson such a special place.”
McGuire and Sciuto aren’t the only ones who love Burleson. Last year, the America’s Promise Alliance (APA) named Burleson one of “100 Best Communities for Young People.” More than 350 communities in all 50 states were nominated for the honor. The APA is the nation’s largest partnership organization dedicated to youth and children.
While neither McGuire nor Sciuto have children yet, they are very much about family. Sciuto married McGuire’s sister five years ago, and coming together to run MOOYAH is a large part of what reunited the family to live in Texas together (Sciuto is a California native).
McGuire, raised in Fort Worth and a graduate of Southern Methodist University, had been living in Chicago with his wife, Kristin, when discussions about opening a MOOYAH began. “It was the reason we came back to Texas,” says McGuire. “MOOYAH’s great food and business philosophy is the perfect match for us.”
MOOYAH, while known for its family friendly, fast casual styling, is best known for its high quality burgers, fries and hand-spun milkshakes. Burgers are made from 100 percent fresh lean American beef that’s never frozen and doesn’t include additives, fillers or preservatives.
These better burgers are served up on a freshly baked bun with special sauces and veggies. For carb counters, the “Iceburger”
Potatoes are also fresh-cut in house and cooked in trans fat free oil, eliminating cholesterol. Milkshakes are made of pure, real ice cream and come in vanilla, chocolate, strawberry or Oreo.
“MOOYAH has seen a huge amount of growth in the last year,” says Alan Hixon, MOOYAH President. “We are looking forward to serving our great burgers, fries and shakes to the people of Burleson."
