Default Sound Familiar ?

The owner of this Wahlbugers in Raleigh NC, Greg Pranzo, doing business as Carolina Burger Company is the same guy that owned Guy Fieri's here in The Villages. The location in Raleigh was forced to close after being open 7 months. I wonder if he stopped paying his rent and employees at Guy Fieri's as well before it was closed here?

I found a link to a business called " YellowTank". They sure do tank.

As you linked, Wahlbergers corporate office just announced they will purchase the Myrtle Beach franchise from Pranzo. It remains to be seen if they will make the dozens of bounced paychecks good. I would think more than one someone in the developers commercial division has some explaining to do regarding the Pranzo/Fieri lease.

Google Maps

We made 3 trips to Myrtle Beach in 1997 to '98 looking to move there. I remember Broadway at the Beach was really nice place that was built around a lake, like a small scale Universal Studios, they had every major food chain. I remember we ate at Landry's, nice steak place, and I just looked at the map and after 20 years they're still there. I just looked up Landry's and they have 600 locations, I guess they know how to operate a restaurant.

Looked like a nice place, I wonder if that was all borrrowed money?

Having moved here from the Raleigh NC area, I have been following the story about Wahlburgers closing there and the employees who were stuck with no pay etc. The Wahlburger brothers have stepped in and said that no employee will get stuck and they will take care of it. If they follow through and the employees get what is coming to them, that is certainly not something you see everyday from a franchisor and I would have to give them kudos. Time will tell.
