FAT Brands Inc., parent company of Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express, announced the development of 10 new co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express restaurants throughout California, Arizona, Texas, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. All locations are slated to open in 2019.

Fatburger, the beloved Hollywood burger chain, founded by Lovie Yancey, maintains and upholds its unique culture and iconic menu offerings by serving the same, signature, made-to-order, Fatburgers, hand-scooped milkshakes and skinny (shoestring) or fat (steak) fries as Lovie served at the original Fatburger stand 70 years ago. Further, Fatburger’s 35-plus year old, Georgia-based, sister brand Buffalo’s Express complements Fatburger’s menu offering fresh, boneless and bone-in chicken wing options with over 13 proprietary wing sauce options.

Building upon the company’s LA roots and success in the region, new locations in development in Monrovia, Bakersfield, Cerritos, and Lake Balboa will enhance the brand’s presence throughout Southern California; additional expansion in Virginia, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Texas further FAT Brand’s mission to bring the iconic burger and wing brands to fans nationwide.

“It is very exciting to see the expansion of Fatburger & Buffalo’s Express across the country,” says Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “We are eager to serve our signature, all-American offerings to consumers within these markets and expand the national reach of both brands.”
