MOUNT OLIVE, NC (WECT) - In an effort to avoid a possible legal battle over the trademark of the "Andy's" name, the "Andy's Burgers Shakes & Fries" restaurant franchise has changed its name to "Highway 55."
The move became official last Friday. There are several Highway 55 locations throughout southeastern North Carolina.
The 50s-style restaurant chain will keep the same concept. The new signs will be in the 100 existing restaurants by the end of this summer, according to a news release.
The restaurant is branching outside of North Carolina for the first time since it opened 20 years ago. It'll open a location in Myrtle Beach. The plan is to open another 275 restaurants in the southeast over the next six to seven years.
