Fatburger arrives in the Democratic Republic of Congo

28 Sep 2022 - FAT Brands Inc. announces the opening of the first Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express in the Democratic Republic of Congo in Kinshasa. In partnership with franchisee, MUZURI Sarl, Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express offers juicy, made-to-order burgers and authentic, buffalo-style wings.

“We are thrilled to expand our footprint in Africa, joining our two Fatburger & Buffalo’s Express locations in Tunisia in addition to our newest location that just opened in Marrakesh last month,” said Jake Berchtold, COO of FAT Brands’ fast casual division.

“All-American cuisine continues to grow in popularity in the continent and we see Kinshasa as the perfect market to introduce locals in the Democratic Republic of Congo to our one-of-a-kind dining experience.”

Ever since the first Fatburger opened in Los Angeles 70 years ago, the chain has been known for its grilled-to-perfection and cooked-to-order burgers while from the Buffalo’s Express menu, patrons can choose bone-in or boneless wings accompanied by a range of original sauces.
