FAT Brands Inc., parent company of Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express, announced the development of 12 new co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express restaurants throughout Southern California, and one co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express restaurant in Washington state. The Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express restaurant in Washington will reside in a new casino being developed by the Quinault Indian Nation, and the Southern California locations will span across Orange County, Simi Valley, Rialto, Glendora, Colton, Bakersfield and Eastvale. The locations are slated to open within the next year.
Fatburger, the beloved Hollywood burger chain, maintains and upholds the unique culture and menu offerings crafted by founder Lovie Yancey when she launched the brand almost 70 years ago in Southern California. Building on success in the greater Los Angeles area, Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express will now bring their all-American dining to even more fans across Southern California and Washington. The two brands offer menus of classic fare including made-to-order burgers, milkshakes and fries at Fatburger and customizable, boneless and bone-in chicken wings and fresh salads at Buffalo’s Express.
“We are excited to expand our existing presence on the West Coast with these upcoming locations,” says Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “We have incredible partnerships that we have cultivated and are thrilled to share our signature, American fare at Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express to consumers in these markets.”
