Mark Wahlberg's Wahlburgers restaurant coming to Cleveland

Fans of celebrity brothers "Marky" Mark Wahlberg and New Kids on the Block/CBS' "Blue Bloods" Donnie Wahlberg and juicy burgers should plan a trip to Cleveland later in the year.

Wahlburgers, the "better burger restaurant" founded by Chef Paul Wahlberg with brothers Mark and Donnie and other investors has announced five new franchise groups to open over 30 stores in major metro markets across the country, including Cleveland.

Wahlburgers, which opened in 2011 and currently serves fresh burgers, sandwiches, sides and salads in seven locations, has committed to a total of 118 Wahlburgers nationwide over the next several years, according to a March 3 press release.

"We are on the road to bringing Wahlburgers to a city near you," said Mark Wahlberg in the release. "We've created this family business with a mission to welcome families and friends from around the world to a place where they can break bread, enjoy some great food and lots of laughs."

The release also states that six restaurants are slated to open in Cleveland and Detroit this summer or fall. Massachusetts, California, Georgia, and both North and South Carolina will also see restaurants opening by early 2017.

While you make weekend plans to visit Cleveland around October or so, you can catch up on the Wahlburgers reality show, whose fifth season premiers March 9 at 9 p.m. on A&E.
