Mark Wahlberg is to set to open a burger restaurant named 'Wahlburgers' alongside fellow actor Donnie Wahlberg and their chef brother, Paul.

Mark Wahlberg's business partner Ed St. Croix said "It just works, it's a good sounding brand we could put out the product with, a great name people could relate to" while speaking to the Boston Herald. The name 'Wahlburger' was previously trade marked by a burger chain in New York run by Tom Wahl but St. Croix said that after some hard work they were able to obtain the naming rights adding that it has "worked out well for both sides." The brothers are planning to go ahead and open their new burger joint in Boston which will seat 80 inside and 40 on an outdoor patio with older brother Paul serving as head chef. The brothers already own an Italian restaurant and are planning on opening a pizza place next spring.

The star of THE FIGHTER, Mark Wahlberg'S career has gone from strength to strength recently and he is currently working on several movies including 'Contraband' about a financially troubled security guard who considers returning to his smuggling ways for the offer of a lucrative reward.
