FAT Brands Inc. opened a Hurricane Grill & Wings in Chula Vista, Calif. It’s the brand’s debut in the California market but it also marks two key milestones: It’s the chain’s first fast-casual format location and it’s the first to include a delivery-only Fatburger location.
“While we have had great success with our full-service model, we see a huge appetite and demand for a fast-casual experience as well with our consumer base,” says Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “Over the last several years, Chula Vista has evolved into a bustling city and we are confident that our wing concept will be received well by locals.”
Founded in 1995, Hurricane Grill & Wings offers jumbo wings paired with signature sauces, rubs, and glazes as well as a diverse menu featuring 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 Fatburger, a brand already well-established in the state. This delivery-only kitchen will allow customers to order from a separate Fatburger menu offered only via third-party delivery services.
