Chula Vista, Calif. — FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc., parent company of Hurricane Grill & Wings and eight other restaurant concepts, has opened Hurricane Grill & Wings in Chula Vista, Calif. This marks the restaurant brand’s first location in California and its first fast-casual restaurant concept nationwide.

“We are excited to expand fan-favorite Hurricane Grill & Wings into the California market,” says Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “While we have had great success with our full-serve model, we see a huge appetite and demand for a fast-casual experience as well with our consumer base.”

Founded in 1995, Hurricane Grill & Wings offers jumbo, fresh wings paired with signature sauces, rubs, and glazes with a diverse menu featuring fan-favorite comfort food such as burgers, tacos and fries. The Chula Vista location is equipped with a full bar as well as a large patio area to complete the dining experience.

This location will also serve as a virtual restaurant for California favorite Fatburger, known for its delicious, made-to-order burgers. This virtual component will allow customers to order from a separate Fatburger menu offered only via third-party delivery service providers.

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 nine restaurant brands: Fatburger, Johnny Rockets, Buffalo’s Cafe, Buffalo’s Express, Hurricane Grill & Wings, Elevation Burger, Yalla Mediterranean and Ponderosa and Bonanza Steakhouses, and franchises over 700 units worldwide.
