SPRINGFIELD, MASS. (August 24, 2018) - Massachusetts natives and brothers Mark, Donnie and Chef Paul Wahlberg have announced they will be joining the culinary portfolio at MGM Springfield, – the $960 million resort and casino opening its doors today, August 24.

Founded in 2011 in Hingham, Mass., Wahlburgers is a joint creation by the three Wahlbergs and has since expanded quickly to 27 locations throughout North America. The restaurant is known worldwide for creating delicious burgers made with fresh ground beef and high quality ingredients, as well as other sides and dishes inspired by the family recipes they grew up with.

“When we started this family business, our goal was to invite friends and families from around the world to enjoy great burgers together,” said Mark Wahlberg. “We can’t wait for Wahlburgers to be a part of MGM Springfield.”

Michael Mathis, president and chief operating officer of MGM Springfield, said, “We are incredibly excited to partner with the Wahlberg brothers to bring this fun destination to our property. The Wahlbergs are a staple in the Massachusetts community, making this restaurant the ideal addition to our resort.”

Wahlburgers’ MGM Springfield location will open in late 2019 on the corner of Main Street and Union Street.
