Arlington, Texas — FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc., parent company of Fatburger & Buffalo’s Express, has opened the 100th U.S. location of Fatburger, which is now open in Arlington, Texas. Co-branded with Buffalo’s Express, the restaurant will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on October 7 to celebrate the milestone. The new location is under the helm of franchisee Maisha Bankhead, who also owns a Fatburger & Buffalo’s Express in North Richland Hills that opened in June 2020.
“Expanding Fatburger & Buffalo’s Express’s domestic presence has been a key focus for FAT Brands as we open new locations in markets such as greater Dallas-Ft. Worth, where we’ve had great success due to incredible franchisees like Maisha Bankhead,” says FAT Brands CEO Andy Wiederhorn. “We’re thrilled to celebrate this landmark opening with Maisha, who is a true advocate for the Fatburger & Buffalo’s Express brand, and we look forward to bringing our all-American menu to more Texans.”
The first Fatburger opened in Los Angeles over 70 years ago. Founder Lovie Yancey believed that a big burger with everything on it is a meal in itself. For more information, visit www.fatburger.com.
