Under a franchise deal, California chain Fatburger is about to establish a presence in Beijing.
Known for its made-to-order burgers, shakes and fries, the brand has signed a franchise development contract with Beijing Haisiyamei Restaurant Management, which has committed to build more than 15 Fatburger China restaurants in Beijing.
This follows the launch of the burger brand in Shanghai, at Sinan Mansions in Huangpu, about to be followed by outlets at BFC and Shanghai Tower.
In the capital city, the first Fatburger China outlet will be at the Grand Summit Beijing, to be followed by another at Gemdale Plaza Beijing
Fatburger is aiming to take its all-American dining experience to new territories worldwide, and has opened in 32 countries. It has just launched in the Philippines and has agreements in place for a further 350-plus locations internationally.
“Sharing core values with key partners is crucial to the growth of the Fatburger brand throughout the world, and we are certain Beijing Haisiyamei Restaurant Management will successfully introduce our menu to new fans,” says Fatburger CEO Andy Wiederhorn.
Fatburger is a fast-casual restaurant serving burgers crafted specifically for each customer. It started its foray in Asia with its parent, Fog Cutter Capital Group, signing a deal with Puji Capital in Shanghai with the aim of expanding across China, Taiwan and Singapore.
