Fatburger, the Hollywood burger brand, opened its first location in Doha, Qatar, in The Pearl, a tourist and recreational destination. Franchisee Khalifa Al Sowaidi, and Al Sowaidi Investment, will provide residents of the development with an all-American dining experience.

The fast-casual burger brand currently delivers custom, made-to-order burgers, crispy Fat Fries, hand-scooped milkshakes, and hand-battered onion rings to over 150 locations in 32 countries. With successful openings in Abu Dhabi, Vancouver, and Tunisia, the 62-year-old burger franchise now takes its next step into the international market with its opening in Doha, Qatar. Fatburger is dedicated to expanding globally and continues to look to countries such as Libya, Iraq, and Kuwait to further its brand presence around the world.

“Qatar is a great market with huge potential for Fatburger, and we feel honored that our brand can be a part of the culture of The Pearl, an island that represents Qatar’s rich past in the pearl industry,” says CEO of Fatburger, Andy Wiederhorn. “We are excited to partner with Al Sowaidi Investment, and we anticipate great success for this location.”
