FAT Brands Enters France with Development Deal, Bringing Fatburger to Paris

LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES


All-American burger favorite set to open two units in Paris within the next two years

Paris, France, Jan. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc., parent company of Fatburger and eight other restaurant concepts, announces a multi-unit development deal which will bring Fatburger to France for the first time. In partnership with BGH Investments, SARL, the deal is set to include the opening of two new locations in Paris within the next eighteen months.

“Fatburger has been widely successful internationally over the years so it was only a matter of time before we entered France,” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “American fare continues to perform well abroad and we look forward to bringing our iconic brand experience to the heart of France, Paris, providing our food offerings to locals and tourists alike.”

Ever since the first Fatburger opened in Los Angeles over 70 years ago, the chain has been known for its delicious, grilled-to-perfection and cooked to order burgers. Founder Lovie Yancey believed that a big burger with everything on it is a meal in itself. And at Fatburger “everything” is not just the usual lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, mustard, pickles and relish. Burgers can be customized with everything from bacon and eggs to chili, jalapenos and onion rings. In addition to its famous burgers, the Fatburger menu also includes Fat and Skinny fries, sweet potato fries, scratch-made onion rings, IMPOSSIBLE burgers, turkeyburgers, chicken sandwiches, and hand scooped milkshakes made from 100% real ice cream.
