Global franchising company FAT Brands has teamed up with a franchise partner to open the first Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express co-branded restaurant in Cave Creek, Arizona, US.

The co-branded restaurant will serve offerings from both brands, including Fatburger’s The Last Great Hamburger Stand range of made-to-order burgers with various add-ons such as chilli, cheese, egg, bacon and onion rings, as well as Buffalo’s Express’ customisable boneless and bone-in chicken wings and fresh salads.

FAT Brands CEO Andy Wiederhorn said: “We have seen great success from our Fatburger locations throughout Arizona and are thrilled to expand our footprint in the market with the additional, classic fare offerings found at Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express’ co-branded locations.

“It is an exciting opportunity to bring the first co-branded location to Cave Creek, with our partner Gregg Wright, and we look forward to this being the first of many more to come.”

“It has so far co-branded with 72 Buffalo’s Express restaurants.”

FAT Brands is primarily engaged in the acquisition, marketing and development of fast casual and casual dining restaurant concepts worldwide.

The company currently operates six restaurant brands, Fatburger, Buffalo’s Cafe, Buffalo’s Express, Hurricane Grill & Wings, and Ponderosa and Bonanza Steakhouses.

It has so far co-branded with 72 Buffalo’s Express restaurants, with this latest co-branded restaurant scheduled to open later this year.

Last week, FAT Brands opened its first two outlets in Singapore, in collaboration with restaurant management company, Deelish Brands.

Situated in Novena Square, the co-branded outlets will include all-American fare from Buffalo’s Express and Fatburger.
