Global franchising company FAT Brands has partnered with Frankie’s Burger Enterprises to develop ten co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express concepts in Canada.
The expansion will increase the company’s presence across the country to more than 65 Fatburger restaurants.
FAT Brands CEO Andy Wiederhorn said: “We are honoured to continue our partnership with Frank DiBenedetto of Frankie’s Burger Enterprises, to further expand our footprint in the region.
“Through this partnership, we are thrilled to continue to provide our classic fare to more consumers throughout Canada.”
FAT Brands offers a wide range of burgers featuring add-ons such as chilli, maple bacon, guacamole, pineapple and fried eggs at these new locations.
It also offers boneless and bone-in chicken wings with more than 13 different sauces.
Frankie’s Burger Enterprises president and CEO Frank Di Benedetto said: “We at Frankie’s Burger Enterprises, Inc. are very excited to continue our partnership with FAT Brands to build upon our success throughout Canada that we began more than 10 years ago.”
Frankie’s Burger Enterprises is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ricky’s All Day Grill Restaurants. It is headquartered in Burnaby, British Columbia.
Last month, the company signed a development deal with Bloomfield for six co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express restaurants across Shanghai, China.
FAT Brands currently owns seven restaurant brands including Fatburger, Buffalo’s Cafe, Buffalo’s Express, Hurricane Grill & Wings, Yalla Mediterranean and Ponderosa and Bonanza Steakhouses.
