Fatburger (US) Expands Growth Plan for France Beyond Paris
07 Apr 2021 - FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc., parent company of Fatburger, Buffalo’s Express, and seven other restaurant concepts, announces a master franchise deal for France that greatly expands its plan to bring Fatburger to the country for the first time.
In partnership with BGH Investments, SARL, the deal includes plans for the development of 40 new co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express locations throughout France. This comes on the heels of the recently announced multi-unit development deal to open two new Fatburger locations in Paris within the next eighteen months.
“Expansion is at the core of FAT Brands, and we are thrilled to build upon our growth and the large appetite for classic American fare in France. This development deal will also introduce locals to signature wings from Buffalo’s Express,” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands.
Ever since the first Fatburger opened in Los Angeles over 70 years ago, the chain has been known for its delicious, grilled-to-perfection and cooked to order burgers. Founder Lovie Yancey believed that a big burger with everything on it is a meal in itself; at Fatburger “everything” is not just the usual roster of toppings. Burgers can be customized with everything from bacon and eggs, to chili, jalapenos and onion rings. In addition to its famous burgers, the Fatburger menu also includes Fat and Skinny Fries, sweet potato fries, scratch-made onion rings, IMPOSSIBLE™ Burgers, turkey burgers, chicken sandwiches, and hand scooped milkshakes made from 100% real ice cream.
From the Buffalo’s Express menu, patrons can choose bone-in or boneless wings accompanied by a range of original sauces. All of Buffalo’s Express’ wings are accompanied by celery, carrots, and blue cheese, ranch or honey mustard dressing. All offerings at Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express are Halal.
