FAT Brands Inc., parent company of Fatburger, Buffalo’s Express, Hurricane Grill & Wings, and six other restaurant concepts, announced the opening of a ghost kitchen, a delivery only outlet, in San Francisco.
“Through the ghost kitchen model, we can enter new territories at a faster rate, and begin to develop brand loyalty for continued expansion in various formats,” says Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “San Francisco is an ideal market to continue our ghost kitchen expansion plans as we see unlimited opportunities for growth in the region.”
The new ghost kitchen will operate through third party delivery services Uber Eats, Postmates, DoorDash and Grubhub. Local San Francisco customers will be able to simultaneously order menu items from FAT Brands’ Fatburger, Buffalo’s Express, and Hurricane Grill & Wings. Yalla Mediterranean will be added to the ghost kitchen offering in the near future.
This San Francisco ghost kitchen announcement comes as part of a larger development agreement between FAT Brands and Tahoe Miller Group. The deal is set to include future growth plans in San Jose and Sacramento.
