“Winning in DFW, our home market, is great. We believe we have the best burger in America, and having our fans agree is awesome,” said Doug Willmarth, President of MOOYAH. “This is the highest fan-voted food honor there is. The competition was fierce, with many restaurants nominated, but in the end, there is only one standing tall above the rest — MOOYAH.”

Among the winning DFW area restaurants are three from multi-unit franchisee Agape Management. With three restaurants open now and an additional seven to come, the Agape Management team is a crucial part of the DFW MOOYAH community. The Agape team is made up of DFW residents who are all actively involved in supporting local schools and other organizations.

“There was a lot of impressive competition in DFW for this award, and we are beyond excited that MOOYAH has received the people’s vote as the Best Burger in DFW,” said Sean McCullough, Partner at Agape Management.

This victory is part of a journey that MOOYAH is on to spread the news of their famous burgers and fries with consumers everywhere. To build awareness in markets across the nation, MOOYAH plans to win the respective “people’s choice” award everywhere it operates. As the concept works toward this goal, Willmarth says winning such recognition will help MOOYAH to stand out even more in guests’ minds and strengthen awareness for franchise owners.

“This honor was earned by our DFW franchise owners and their teams’ daily efforts to serve our guests the best-tasting burgers in town,” Willmarth added. “Congratulations again to our DFW team on their well-deserved win. We look forward to celebrating victories all over America in the coming year with all of our franchise owners and team members.”
