Here’s the press release:
FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc., parent company of Fatburger, Buffalo’s Express, and seven other restaurant concepts, announces the development of three co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express concepts in Wichita, Kansas. In partnership with Uncle John’s Brands, LLC, the co-branded restaurants will start to roll-out next year.
“In 2020, we significantly grew our presence of co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express, opening many locations both domestically and internationally,” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “Burgers and wings complement each other well and the demand is there from a franchisee perspective. We have been eyeing Kansas for some time and think both brands will be received well in the bustling city of Wichita.”
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.
From the Buffalo’s Express menu, patrons can choose bone-in or boneless wings accompanied by a range of sauces including Scorchin’, Carolina Fire BBQ, Asian Sesame, Coconut Jerk, Honey Garlic, and Sweet Bourbon BBQ. All of Buffalo’s Express menu wings are accompanied by celery, carrots, and blue cheese, ranch or honey mustard dressing.
