Hamburgers, located at Outdoor Village at Geneses Valley Center, 4372 Miller Road, announced the closure through its Facebook page on Wednesday, Dec. 9. General Manager Rob Gill said the business is actively searching for a new location within Genesee County that will better fit its customers.
In June 2019, more than 200 people lined up outside the business in Flint Township to get a chance to taste the menu offerings. And now, there're 10 employees to serve customers for take-out, curbside and outdoor dining inside a heated tent that can accommodate 25 people.
Gill hopes the current ban will be lifted in time to have guests dine inside during its last days open. “ Hamburgers isn’t leaving the Flint area, we’re just finding a better home, and I want to thank everyone who supported us over the last year and a half.

Price and products may vary by location. When Chef Paul set out to create a family restaurant, things got interesting quickly.
Congrats to the Hamburgers Huntsville team, and it’s amazing staff for officially opening their doors today! Chef Paul Weinberg is the brains behind the food at Hamburgers, and his actor brothers Mark and Donnie secured a television deal for the chain.
Before announcing plans in December, the Walkers signed deals for 27 locations in Florida and New York and then quickly revealed 66 more, including 20 in the Middle East. The latest announcement adds Charleston, Charlotte, Atlanta, Cleveland, and Detroit, among others, to Wahlburgers's roster of cities.
Eater New York critic Robert Siesta wasn't either impressed with the offerings at the chain's Coney Island restaurant. Raleigh Raleigh’s Hamburgers closed in December after a last-chance health inspection revealed the water in the restaurant’s dishwasher couldn’t reach the required temperature, according to inspection reports with the Wake County Department of Environmental Services.
The franchise of the celebrity burger company, open just seven months on Fayetteville Street, was shut down by the Environmental Services department following a series of warnings about food safety issues, which included months of water that wasn’t hot enough. The health department ordered the restaurant to close after the last failed inspection Dec. 17, according to public records.
“Having hot water helps control risk factors, items that contribute to foodborne illness,” said Ashley Whittington, section chief overseeing Wake County restaurant inspections, in a phone interview. It was a franchise that’s part of a group called Carolina Burgers, owned by franchisee Greg Piano, and includes a location in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
A spokesperson for the corporate Hamburgers company emphasized the independence of its franchises and said it is investigating the closing of the Raleigh location. “Nobody has reached out to me about this, directly,” Weinberg told ABC11 in another private message from his verified Twitter account.
In 2018, Wake County issued 48 “intent to suspend” notices, Whittington said, meaning the restaurants would be closed if violations weren’t addressed right away. The Raleigh Hamburgers got its first notice on Nov. 15 that its water wasn’t hot enough, according to inspection records.
The inspection report noted the restaurant would be closed four days later unless the dishwasher worked. On Dec. 28 the restaurant at 319 Fayetteville St., was padlocked by order of the Wake County Sheriff’s Office following eviction proceedings initiated by the building’s landlord.
Katy Lester, 22, worked as a server and bartender since October, and said some employees found out about the closure through the media, which was first reported by ABC11.

The chef had opened a waterfront, wood-burning Mediterranean restaurant called Alma Love across the street in the new development just a year before. Now, in addition to Alma Love, Paul Weinberg oversees 11 Hamburgers franchises with his younger brothers, Mark and Donnie Weinberg, and the chef is also a player in the Emmy-nominated A&E Network show, Hamburgers, the seventh season of which premieres November 16.
But for Paul Weinberg, his eyes are on the next burger coming out of the kitchen. The chef took a break from his busy schedule in the midst of filming Hamburgers to chat with Boston magazine on Hamburgers fifth anniversary.
How present are you at each restaurant, as Hamburgers continues to grow? I have a charity dinner coming up , and I’m working on a new menu for Alma Love.
You’ll get people who watch the show, when they’re in Boston, they’ll either come to Gingham, or go to Fenway, or even go to Lynn field. A lot of times, in Gingham, people will have burgers and stuff at Hamburgers, and then they’ll come across the street and have dessert.
We’ve had come in , they were from Long Island, they came up on their anniversary and had dinner. Five years in, you have 11 Wahlburgerslocations, plus a food truck in Philadelphia, plus a handful more in the works.
Yes, Myrtle Beach will be opening, I think, by the end of the week. It’s one of those things where you think about it, you kind of want to go in that direction , but if it was one , I’d be happy.
I just want to serve people food and make them happy. Really figuring out the demands, especially on my time, and the traveling part of it.
Mediterranean flavors, seafood, and pastas, those menu items are everywhere these days. The hard part with having had that restaurant open for a while is you develop the sacred cows.
Some people come to a restaurant because they want to have something new all the time. ‘I’ve eaten through the whole menu, and I get the specials.’ Then there are other people that say, ‘When I come to your restaurant, I only get one dish.’ To me, that’s the highest praise to pay, because it means there’s something to come back for.
One of the things I am surprised and happy that it was is our grilled octopus. The more people see and the more they get interested in things, the more they go back to the places they do like and respect.

Market Grille dining areas will remain open during the transition with a modified menu that includes breakfast, burgers, sandwiches and other specials, company officials said in a statement. Humvee will still offer Market Grille pickup and delivery options through the restaurant's app in the Des Moines metro, Cayman said.
Humvee will be reducing store hours in the metro and notified employees at its Urbandale fulfillment center that layoffs are likely in early May.
