Winning awards from New England television, newspaper, fan-favorite voting and regional food competitions, Mr. Mac’s has collected quite a few accolades in a short time.award-wining-taste   After long careers in corporate America, Valerie and Patrick knew that they wanted something that they could control themselves. They wanted to build this business as a true “family” affair with a sense of fun, community and quality. Their vision was to build a restaurant that they could someday share with the world through private ownership in local communities, building the brand through franchising.

“It’s so rewarding to have our vision coming true! The response to our concept is overwhelming!” Valerie Anderson

Without extensive experience in the restaurant industry, both siblings were avid foodies and agreed right off the bat to hire a “head-foodie” and General Manager. Mark Murphy, a seasoned “grew up in family restaurants” is a business graduate and a vital part of the Mr. Mac’s management team. Together the three, along with their operations manager, led a team of culinary students in the perfection of the menu that kick started their award-winning restaurant concept on the road to franchising as of January, 2016.
