Here’s a story about how a lottery ticket paved the way for one Bosnian immigrant to share his passion for food. His name is Muamer Hasecic, but everyone calls him, Moe. Moe came to the United States in 1994 at age 15, spending several years in Arizona and Illinois working for the Denny’s franchise. He eventually moved to Louisville and took a management position at Sonic in 2004. Fast forward to December 2011, Moe buys a few scratch off lotto-tickets, one of which ends up being a $40,000 winner. He started a pressure washing company with his winnings which helped him save for a food truck. In January of 2018, Weekend Burgers was born. Shocked at how well his burger business was doing with the crowds, he began looking for a more permanent spot. “I have looked at many spaces in last two years, nothing really that fit our need until we came across the location at 5600 National Turnpike,” explained Moe. Moe says the new spot is more than just burgers. He offers an expanded dessert menu, including locally-sourced ice cream, milkshakes, sundaes and banana splits.Want to try them out?
