Mark Wahlberg buys burger name

Mark Wahlberg is opening a restaurant with his brothers

Actor brothers Donnie and Mark Wahlberg have licensed the name of a hamburger from a western New York chain of drive-in-style restaurants and plan to use it for their new eatery.

Executives with Tom Wahl's have told the Democrat And Chronicle that the brothers have licensed the Wahlburger name from the company so they can use it when they and another sibling, Paul, open a burger joint called Wahlburgers Restaurant in their Boston hometown.

Tom Wahl's serves a cheeseburger called a Wahlburger and owns the federal trademark rights to the name.

Tom and his brother Bill opened the first Tom Wahl's restaurant in Avon, south of Rochester, in 1955. The chain now operates eight restaurants.

The company hasn't disclosed the amount of the agreement.
