WESTBOROUGH – After months of dormancy, there are signs of activity at the Bay State Commons site soon to become Wayback Burgers.

More than a year after the announcement that the company was coming to town, the site at 600 Union St. – close to Panera Bread – has its windows covered, with a “coming soon” sign.

According to Fred Lonardo, the town’s building commissioner, zoning enforcement officer and community development director, work has begun at the site, but there is no timeline for completion.

Wayback, based in Cheshire, Conn., operates 166 restaurants in 35 states and overseas. The nearest franchise is in Worcester.

The chain is known for a variety of cooked-to-order burgers available as a single patty or classic double patties. It also offers cheesesteaks, crispy and grilled chicken sandwiches, veggie burgers, chicken tenders, fresh salads and sides, including fries, tater tots, onion rings and mac-and-cheese bites.

There will also be milkshakes with Blue Bunny ice cream and milk.

The new 1,608-square-foot Wayback Burgers will offer a modernized kitchen visible through glass windows and a pass-through so that customers can see how their food is prepared. Furnishings will also include a variety of seating options, including upholstered banquettes, booths, and floating and community tables.
