The Kullmans are not world-famous athletes traveling the globe basking in adulation, but they do get the kind of first-class treatment MOOYAH franchisees have come to expect. Family patriarch Jeff Kullman explained how one of his sons brought MOOYAH Burgers, Shakes & Fries to the family’s attention. “We were looking at different franchise concepts, and our oldest son read an article in a trade publication about MOOYAH,” he said. “One of the things that was important to him was model efficiency, and that’s what MOOYAH had.” That, coupled with the model’s simplicity and strong profit potential, has put the Kullmans on the path to success. Jeff went on to highlight how MOOYAH offers franchisees more than just a superior product to provide to customers. “They’re extremely supportive, from advertising and marketing strategies to helping with any operational challenges,” he said. “Most importantly, they’ll listen to you. The executive team has an open door policy – it’s not a challenge to get a hold of them or have them respond to your situation and needs. It’s what I would assess as a true partnership.” The Kullman Family,
Chuck and Denise Kerr are not award-winning movie megastars, but MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes has given them the kind of attention and support silver screen legends would be envious of. After deciding corporate America wasn’t for him, Chuck was looking for what’s next. After his wife called him to rave about the food at MOOYAH, he knew what was next. “MOOYAH has supported us on many different levels,” Chuck said. “If I have any issues, MOOYAH is on the phone, driving it up the channel and trying to get resolutions. They’re putting me in front of who I need to talk to if I need to talk to. They’re constantly trying to negotiate better quality products, from the food to everything else.” The brand has become a family affair for Chuck and Denise, with their two daughters working at their location. The store itself is expected to reach $2 million in sales during 2015 after being open for less than two years. Chuck & Denise Kerr,
Bailey McGuire and Frank Sciuto are not part of an internationally-acclaimed, Grammy award-winning hip hop duo, but MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes still treats them like superstars. It all started when Sciuto was doing some real estate work for the brand. “I was living in Chicago at the time doing marketing, and we had always bounced ideas off each other about starting our own business,” McGuire said. “He came to me with the opportunity. I quit my job in Chicago, moved back to Texas and we opened our first location.” The friends’ first MOOYAH was only the 12th location for the brand overall at the time, but from the beginning Bailey and Frank were able to concentrate on the bigger picture thanks to MOOYAH’s attention to detail. “I can trust them 100 percent to deliver the great food customers love, and I get to focus on other parts of my business, like marketing and getting involved with the community,” McGuire said.
