FAT Brands, the parent company of Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express, has signed an international development deal with FB Scotland Ltd to open three co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express restaurants across Scotland in the next five years.
The first branch created as a result of the partnership is scheduled for Dundee.
Executing on its renewed focus on international expansion, the Scotland deal is the latest in a slew of growth announcements from Fatburgerand Buffalo’s Express.
FEJ first revealed Fat Brand’s plans for the UK market back in October, when it confirmed it had set its sights on opening 15 sites in the coming years after striking a franchise deal with Charlie FB Limited.
The company’s co-branded locations in Scotland will offer guests a variety of American dishes from boneless wings to made-to-order burgers, providing an authentic taste of Americana no matter the location in the world.
“We see tremendous opportunity in Scotland to grow the Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express brands thanks to the country’s love for American food, especially burgers and wings,” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands.
“We have a few key cities in mind and are looking forward to not only creating a fabulous dine-in experience, but also eventually rolling out secondary services such as vegan options and delivery. These locations will be a place where everyone can congregate to enjoy great American food.”
FAT Brands is a leading global franchising company that strategically acquires, markets and develops fast casual and casual dining restaurant concepts around the world.
The Company currently owns six restaurant brands, Fatburger, Buffalo’s Cafe, Buffalo’s Express, Hurricane Grill & Wings, and Ponderosa and Bonanza Steakhouses, that have approximately 350 locations open and 300 under development in 32 countries.
