Vowing to Be Indian Land’s Favorite Burger Joint from Day One, Hwy 55 Will Make Charitable Donation to the Matt Blackwell Foundation via Andy’s Charitable Foundation
U.S. Route 521, meet Hwy 55.
Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries, the highly lauded All-American family-friendly diner, is set to open its first Indian Land, SC location on Monday, July 25th at 8348 Charlotte Highway, approximately 8 miles south on 521 from the Johnston Road exit off I-485 in Ballantyne (Charlotte, NC).
Already well-known in Charlotte, North Carolina and South Carolina, Hwy 55 says the Indian Land restaurant in Lancaster County is one of 50 new Hwy 55 locations planned for South Carolina over the next 10 years.
“The Indian Land area just south of Ballantyne in Charlotte is the highest growth area in Lancaster County, which is also the fastest-growing county in South Carolina,” said Jason Hall, owner of the Hwy 55 Indian location and the master franchise partner in Louisiana. “Indian Land is such a great town, with best of both worlds: close enough to Charlotte for all of the big city perks and all of the benefits of a smaller community. I know Hwy 55 will be a big hit here, we are super family-friendly and simply serve the best burgers you’ll find anywhere.”
Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries boasts a fresh, All-American diner experience with fresh, never-frozen burgers, premium sliced cheesesteaks piled high on steamed hoagies, and frozen custard made in-house every day. With its open-grill design, the kitchen’s dedication and care when hand-crafting meals is front and center.
“I founded Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries 25 years ago because I felt there was a great need to provide guests with great food, friendly service and honest value in a relaxing, yet fun environment,” said Hwy 55 president and founder Kenney Moore, who flipped every burger for the chain in its infant years. “The dream is alive and well today at all of our restaurants and I’m excited to open our first location in Indian Land. We look forward to being great neighbors and vow to be Indian Land’s favorite burger joint beginning Monday.”
In keeping with Hwy 55’s continued mission to give back to the communities where it does business, the Hwy 55 in Indian Land will donate 10% of sales from the first three days of business (up to $1000) to the Matt Blackwell Foundation, which is dedicated to enriching the lives of Lancaster County’s youth. The donation is funded by Hwy 55’s charitable arm, Andy’s Charitable Foundation, the most company’s most visible commitment to community involvement.
Hwy 55, a retro-themed diner that features fresh, never-frozen hand-pattied burgers, house-made frozen custard, and other classic favorites in a unique open-kitchen setting, was founded in Goldsboro, North Carolina in 1991. Hwy 55 reflects founder Kenney Moore’s commitment to authentic hospitality and fresh food. Widely known in the state for its fresh food and service that exceeds expectations, the chain won BurgerBusiness.com’s “Best Burger” in 2012. It also was recently named a top 500 franchise in the United States by Entrepreneur magazine and a “Next 20” restaurant brand by Nation’s Restaurant News. HWY 55 currently has 126 locations in 10 states, Denmark and the United Arab Emirates. Like HWY 55 on at https://www.facebook.com/Hwy55burgers or follow us at https://twitter.com/hwy55burgers.
