“There has been a space in the market between McDonald’s and [the steakhouse] Jensen’s Bøfhus,” Jens-Christian Due, the head of Hwy 55’s Danish division, told BT.

“There are various gourmet burger restaurants, but there you can be broke before you get out the door. We think Hwy 55 is the perfect middle ground.”

The company hopes to open 30-35 more Hwy 55 restaurants across the country over the next ten years.
