Wayback Burgers Plans to Open in Woodbridge, Virginia


Cheshire, CT— Just outside of Washington DC rests the suburban city of Woodbridge, Virginia, home to scenic Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge and historic Rippon Lodge, as well as a host of major retail centers. Yet, this bustling town within Prince William County will soon have even more to offer the local community and visitors, as Wayback Burgers proudly announces the recent purchase of a new franchise agreement for this area.

As America’s favorite hometown burger joint harking back to an age of family sharing quality sit-down meals, who better to take the helm of this business venture than husband and wife duo, Arjun and Bhavini Patel. Bhavini Patel, CEO/COO of Jahnavi, LLC, is the leading light for this exciting endeavor for Prince William County. Patel, who has a bachelor’s in finance and previously worked for Mrs. Fields® Cookies and for Wachovia Bank, purchased the franchise territory of Woodbridge, VA and will act as General Manager/Owner of the franchise. As co-owners of Jahnavi, LLC, Patel and her husband will share in the restaurant operation responsibilities and day-to-day management of the franchise.

While no specific location has been determined yet for the newly signed Woodbridge franchise agreement, Patel looks to the growing area of Woodbridge and its neighboring city of Manassas, VA to set up shop. Woodbridge is located just 20 miles south of Washington DC, with many of the capital’s employees living and commuting from the Prince William County area. The rapid growth of neighborhoods and businesses in the area make Prince William County the ideal place for a Wayback Burgers restaurant, which Patel plans to open later this fall. 

Additionally, Patel, her husband and their children are residents of Prince William County and so already have ties to the community of this scenic suburban area. As a quick-service restaurant brand, Wayback Burgers offers the best of both worlds—freshly-made, quality meals in a relaxed and family-centric atmosphere as well as served to-go for those looking for a hearty, but quick bite as they journey to experience the local wildlife and history.  

“Not only will we be providing the community with such a refreshingly varied menu of quality fare, but our decision to purchase a franchise agreement is one of support for the local economy,” says Patel. “We look forward to being able to offer our fellow residents a clean and safe work environment with a brand built on wholesome values.”

Patel plans to serve all of the standard menu options at her Prince William County store, which includes delicious burgers, cooked to order and made from 100 percent ground beef, available as a single, classic double, triple and triple-triple (nine) patty; Wayback Burger’s famously rich, thick milkshakes, crispy and grilled chicken sandwiches; veggie burgers, turkey burgers, fresh salads; and freshly made sides including fries, onion rings and House-Made Chips.
