Wahlburgers looking to open new location in Flint
(4/17/2018) - Another burger joint may be coming to Mid-Michigan.
During a stop at the new Wahlburgers in Metro Detroit, owner Mark Wahlberg let it slip that he's setting his sights on Flint.
On Sunday, the actor said he'd like to put a big, beautiful Wahlburgers smack in the middle of the city.
While no specific location or timeline for opening was announced, Wahlberg said he loves the people of Flint and has been pushing to expand the chain to the city.
Wahlberg was a member of the 1990s boy band New Kids on the Block. He later went solo with Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, scoring a hit single with "Good Vibrations."
He most recently has been working as an actor and producer.
Wahlburgers started in 2011 with locations in the Northeast. It since has expanded to 15 states in the eastern United States, including two locations in Michigan.
The chain offers chef-inspired hamburgers reminiscent of the Wahlberg family's favorites.
