Feldman & Wahlberg Partnership
Jay Feldman and Mark Wahlberg met to discuss the idea of Feldman teaming up with Wahlberg to bring a Wahlburgers to Michigan. But this lunch was only the second time Feldman and Wahlberg had ever met. Their first encounter, a few weeks prior, was a brief handshake when Wahlberg was in Detroit filming “Transformers.”
Little did either of them know that that handshake would lead to a multimillion-dollar empire together that includes several restaurants and car dealerships. Along the way, they have also developed a deep friendship.
“Jay’s experience in the car business attracted me, even though we got into restaurants first,” Wahlberg said. “But I’ve always been a big car guy and he’s very reputable. He’s just a good guy, a great family man. We just hit it off right away.”
