Mark Wahlberg is finally bringing his famous chain, Wahlburgers, to Hollywood, reports CBS LA. The actor, who first opened the burger chain in Massachusetts, has signed an agreement with five franchise groups to bring the brand to the West Coast, including Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Wahlburgers, which was a creation of the three Wahlberg brothers Mark, Donnie, and Paul, uses angus beef patties on artisan buns with a variety of toppings. The expansive menu also includes salads, chicken sandwiches, chili, and french fries. Essentially, it's a catch-all fast-casual concept backed by famous people. No word on where Wahlburgers plans to land in Los Angeles.

It's no surprise that Wahlberg, who was the main inspiration (and executive producer) for the hit HBO show Entourage, would eventually bring the concept (through a franchise agreement) here to Tinseltown. The burger chain is also the center of an A&E reality TV show of the same name. Wahlbergers currently sports seven outlets: five on the East Coast and two in Canada.
