One reason the fast-food restaurant has received so much attention, of course, is that it is co-owned by the Wahlberg family, which includes two of Kane County’s most-famous residents: Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy.
Wahlberg is a singer, songwriter, rapper, actor, record producer, and film producer. He is a founding member of the boy band New Kids on the Block and co-star of the popular television series Blue Bloods.
McCarthy is an actress, model, television host, satellite radio broadcaster and author. She is a former co-host of the ABC talk show The View and is presently a judge on the Fox musical competition show The Masked Singer.
The groundbreaking for the restaurant took place in March 2019, and the restaurant had been slated to open in March of this year. Due to the pandemic, the grand opening had to be postponed.
The restaurant officially opened on July 28.
