Plans were announced for a new Wahlburgers concept restaurant called Wahlberers Wild to open in the famous pyramid Bass Pro Shop in Memphis, Tennessee.
According to a press release from Bass Pro Shop, the famous burger chain owned by actors Mark and Donnie Wahlberg will open a location in the Bass Pro Shop. The restaurant will feature a “wild game” menu.
Wahlburgers Wild will mark several firsts for the restaurant chain including being the brand’s first location in Tennessee, first location inside any Bass Pro Shops, and first to offer signature wild game menu items from Chef Paul Wahlberg. Wahlburgers Wild will feature these signature menu offerings in its outdoor-themed experience befitting Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid.
Mark Wahlberg and Bass Pro Shop’s owner Johnny Morris’s relationship go back a long way. They have teamed up on a number of conservation and veteran assistance related projects.
“As one of the most dynamic and exciting shopping destinations anywhere, Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid strives to offer our customers and guests with an incredible experience, and Wahlburgers Wild will certainly carry on that tradition,” said Johnny Morris, noted conservationist and founder of Bass Pro Shops. “We are very grateful to Mark and the entire Wahlberg family for their friendship, support and enthusiasm in bringing the first Wahlburgers Wild to Bass Pro Shops.”
“On behalf of our entire family, I couldn’t be more excited or proud to partner with our friend Johnny Morris to bring this exciting new Wahlburgers concept to life,” said Mark Wahlberg. “Wahlburgers Wild will offer everything fans love about our restaurants combined with the signature fun and adventure Johnny and Bass Pro Shops offers their guests every day.”
Wahlburgers Wild will occupy the space adjacent to Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl, and guests will be able to order food and beverages while enjoying the 13-lane ocean-themed bowling alley. The menu will also be available as a room service option for guests staying at Big Cypress Lodge, as well as for catering events.
Construction will begin soon, with a grand opening date to be announced at a later date.
Personally, I think this is awesome anytime a celebrity goes out of their way to support hunting, fishing, and conservation is a good thing.
