Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express plan to open 12 co-branded locations throughout Southern California and Washington this year and next.
Thanks to a new development deal with franchise partner Gregg Wright, the first-ever co-branded location is on target to open in Cave Creek, Calif., late this year. The Washington store will reside in a new casino being developed by the Quinault Indian Nation, while Southern California locations will span across Orange County, Simi Valley, Rialto, Glendora, Colton, Bakersfield and Eastvale.
In a separate statement, Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express announced the opening of two additional co-branded restaurants in Singapore in partnership with Singapore-based restaurant management company Deelish Brands. Parent company FAT Brands also announced openings and development deals for the Philippines, Scotland, Tokyo, Canada and the U.S.’s East Coast.
In September, Inspire Brands named Lyle Tick, a former Walgreens exec, the new president of its Buffalo Wild Wings concept.
