Raleigh’s Wahlburgers has closed
Wahlburgers at Broadway at the Beach will close for the offseason Monday “while it refreshes for the spring,” according to an email from Katie Piepiora with restaurant’s corporate office.
“We are working with the independent franchisee on a re-opening date for the restaurant before the busy season picks back up in the spring, and will let guests know the re-opening date as soon as possible,” the email states.
Piepiora wrote in the email that the location would close for the offseason at 6 p.m. Sunday. The popular tourist spot had been operating under “seasonal hours” recently, opening at 11 a.m. and closing at 6 p.m.
“Myrtle Beach Wahl Family: Join us today for one last hurrah before we close for the off-season at 6PM tonight! Come in and grab your favorite burger or Wahlbowl and satisfy that craving before we refresh for the spring,” the restaurant posted on its Facebook page.
Recently, a Wahlburgers location in Raleigh, North Carolina that was also owned by Myrtle Beach franchise owner Greg Pranzo closed seven months after opening. The News & Observer reports that it was ordered to close by the health department following a series of warnings about food safety issues. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) records show the Myrtle Beach location with all “A” grades since opening in October 2016.
Wahlburgers is a hamburger and restaurant chain that was created by celebrities Mark Wahlburg and brother Donnie Wahlburg.
