Wahlburgers, Covent Garden

Bringing some Hollywood glamour to the world of burgers, Wahlburgers opened its first UK burger restaurant last month, and Foster and Gamko were there to help!


Wahlburgers was established in 2011 by Mark Walhberg with his brothers Donnie and Paul. There are now over 30 Wahlburgers across America, Canada and the UK. The Wahlburger menu has been carefully curated by Paul, taking inspiration from his family’s favourite foods growing up in Boston.


Foster and Gamko’s national development accounts manager, Laura Orr, worked closely with US dealer Stafford-Smith Inc. and Lloyd Catering Equipment in the UK to make sure the products were right for the Wahlburgers brand.


Cris Gross, VP of sales and marketing at Stafford-Smith, said, “We were really pleased with Foster’s support, they went the extra mile to ensure we got exactly what we wanted. We’re looking forward to working on the next venture with Foster and Gamko.”


Wahlburgers and Stafford-Smith already have a successful relationship with ITW’s American-based companies, such as refrigeration manufacturer Traulsen. Knowing the quality and reliability of ITW, they naturally wanted to use ITW companies in different markets. 


The kitchen has a range of Foster products, including five EcoPro G2 cabinets, two prep stations, Slimline, low level and undercounter cabinets.


The bar area has a Maxiglass 500 litre upright bottle cooler, six E3 bottle coolers (2 door, 3 door, and 4 door) and a walk-in keg cooler. A large coldroom has also been installed.
