About Us

About Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries

Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries first opened in Goldsboro, NC in 1991. We started out as Andy’s Cheesesteaks & Cheeseburgers. 

Building on a philosophy of servant leadership, Andy’s has grown and produced over 30 entrepreneurs, most of whom started off as minimum-wage employees.

As we moved away from malls we changed our name from Andy’s Cheesesteaks & Cheeseburgers to Andy’s Burgers Shakes & Fries. We now have over 100 restaurants and a corporate center based in Mount Olive, NC.

After 20 years of exceptional service and outstanding food, we decided to share our concept with the rest of the world. We are now selling franchises throughout the Southeast.

With every new endeavor there are setbacks. Ours came in our name, of all things. Go figure. Another company already has the federal trademark for “Andy’s”. So, after careful deliberation, and hours of “playing” with different names, we decided on… wait for it… Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries!!!!

So, now we have a name that we can take to other states. Look for us in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Florida, and Ohio. Same great service, same great food, and now with a cool new name.
