Fog Cutter Capital Group Inc.'s (OTCBB: FCCG) Fatburger restaurant unit this week announced its latest Middle East launch scheduled for mid-March in Dubai, marking the second location in the city.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with our franchisee Khalil Asfour of Vetra Investments” says Andy Wiederhorn, chairman of Fatburger.

“Since opening the city’s first location in 2008 at the base of the world’s tallest building, the famous Burj Khalifa, formerly known as the Burj Dubai, we’re attracting a loyal and rapidly growing customer base that enjoys our quality burgers, shakes and fries.”

This latest restaurant boasts a prime location on Jumeriah Beach Road, in the Umm Suqeim neighborhood of the city, on the main beach access route. The company plans to open six more restaurants over the next few years, including a location at Mirdif City Center.

Fatburger has 16 locations outside the United States, in Canada, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific, with plans to open more than 40 more locations internationally over the next several years. Most recently, Fatburger unveiled plans to open a new location in Beijing, China, also by mid-March.
