The long-awaited Wahlburgers restaurant is nearing completion. In fact, it was announced today that the restaurant will open at The Corners of Brookfield on Tuesday, Sept. 24.

Created by Chef Paul Wahlberg with brothers Mark and Donnie, Walburgers was intended as a destination for friends and family to come together over delicious chef-inspired dishes served up in a casual, music-filled atmosphere.

The 6,000-square foot restaurant, which will be located at 325 N. Market St., will be a first in Wisconsin, offering a unique dining experience that includes signature burgers, chef-inspired recipes, home-style sides, fish, chicken and vegetarian options, and a full bar including specialty drinks such as adult frappes and floats.

In preparation for the opening, Hy-Vee, the franchisee for Wahlburgers, is currently looking to fill positions at the restaurant, including bartenders, servers, line and prep cooks, hosts and more. For more information, interested applicants can search positions and apply at
