Fans waiting to see Mark Wahlberg or any of his famous family at the new Wahlburgers will have to wait an additional few months for the star’s arrival, likely in fall 2017.
The restaurant, which will be co-owned by Wahlberg, is slated to open where Big Boy, 21200 Penn Street (near Eureka) currently sits. It will be directly across from the Menards’ development.
Renovation plans are underway, but the opening has been pushed to the fall. Wahlberg recently signed an exclusive contract with Meijer to sell his dietary supplements, and when the Wahlburgers opens fans should expect to see Wahlberg doing several appearances in Michigan at that time.
This will be the second Wahlburgers’ location in Michigan, the other being near the Greektown Casino in Detroit, with at least one more slated to open in late summer as well.
