Mark Wahlberg told a British publication that could expand overseas this year.
Wahlberg, who is a co-owner of the successful Hingham Shipyard restaurant said Wahlburgers will open in Britain and Ireland this year, according to UK outlet Metro. This comes after Wahlberg made remarks that Wahlburgers could open near Fenway Park, according to Eater Boston.
Despite the celebrity actor’s comments, a Wahlburgers spokesman said the restaurant is not expanding.
"While the Wahlbergs are excited about the possibility of expanding the Wahlburger brand, there are no immediate plans at this time. They are thrilled with the success of the Hingham restaurant and will continue to focus on the Boston area for now," the spokesperson told Eater.com
