It was a big deal just about 2 years ago when Wahlburgers opened a location in the Mall of America.  Apparently it was one of the biggest openings they had, and there have been quite a few considering the attention they got from their show on A&E.

For quite a few years Mark Wahlberg has been involved with HyVee with some performance style products.  Now, the Wahlburgers empire in going to be more involved with HyVee.  Some of the stores have a sit down restaurant Market Grille.  There are 22 of these stores.  It's really kind of nice when you would like to sit down for lunch or dinner.  Now, those stores are going to be serving Wahlburgers food.

The service will be counter service, but then you will be able to sit down...kind of like a food court in a mall.

In Minnesota, restaurants in Brooklyn Park, Cottage Grove, Eagan, Lakeville, New Hope, Oakdale, Savage, Shakopee and Rochester will be affected. The three Market Grille Express restaurants in Robbinsdale, Plymouth and Maple Grove will not see changes.

This transition will last into the Spring of this year, and will only be available in the Market Grille locations, not in the Market Grille Express.  That one is already counter service without the sit down option.
