Birmingham, AL – February 2, 2023 Immediate, a financial wellness company, today announced new business with Milo’s Hamburgers, a restaurant chain with 23 (soon to be 24) locations, as their preferred earned wage access (EWA) provider. Milo’s is a fast-food burger shop founded in 1946 with deep roots in the city Immediate also calls home, Birmingham.

For over seventy-six years, Milo’s has served their famous saucy burgers with that little extra piece of meat and sweet tea to fans across the state of Alabama. As a local leader in the restaurant service industry, offering a financial wellness solution to the Milo’s workforce is a way to give their employees a little something extra. It also serves as an inspiration to similar companies on the importance of helping employees improve their financial well-being.

“We are incredibly proud to have a positive financial impact on both employees and businesses. Our customers in the restaurant industry have seen a significant reduction in turnover rates, retaining and nurturing the talented individuals that make up their team with our financial wellness benefit,” said Matt Pierce, Immediate Founder and CEO.

“At Milo’s Hamburgers, we know the way to create a loyal customer base is to serve delicious food with world-class service. One of the biggest challenges our industry has faced in recent years is historically high turnover rates, which has a direct impact on customer service. We’re excited about our partnership with Immediate and looking forward to the impact their offering has on our team’s financial wellness and, subsequently, the service we deliver to our patrons,” said Adam Pennebaker, Milo’s Hamburgers CEO.
