Burger chain Walburgers to open restaurant in Cleveland


CLEVELAND (AP) — A burger chain founded by actors Mark and Donnie Wahlberg and their brother Paul Wahlberg is expanding to Cleveland.

A release from Jack Entertainment says the first Wahlburgers restaurant in Ohio is slated to open this spring in downtown Cleveland across from the Jack Cleveland Casino.

The release says Wahlburgers Cleveland will feature a restaurant and a bar. It’s owned and operated by Nino Cutraro, who also owns and operates Wahlburgers Detroit.

The first Wahlburgers restaurant and bar owned and founded by the Wahlberg brothers debuted in October 2011 in Hingham, Massachusetts. The brothers’ reality TV show titled “Wahlburgers” premiered on A&E in 2014 and centers around the restaurant run by chef Paul Wahlberg.

Wahlburgers serves gourmet burgers and fries and has locations in seven states.
