EDMONTON, AB, CANADA, October 19, 2015 – It’s a match made in heaven. Fatburger, one of Canada’s fast-growing and most popular burger chains, will soon be serving up some of Canada’s biggest and juiciest burgers in a prime location inside the food court of the West Edmonton Mall, North America’s biggest shopping centre.
Fans of Buffalo’s world-famous wings and tenders can also count on getting their fill here, too.
At 5.3 million square feet, West Edmonton Mall is home to more than 800 stores and services including nine world-class attractions, hotels, dining venues, the widest variety of one-of-a-kind retailers, and entertainment for all ages.
“We are delighted and honored to bring Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express to this enormously popular venue that’s visited by nearly 31 million people yearly,” said Frank Di Benedetto, CEO, president and owner of the FDF Restaurant Brandz franchise system that includes the Fatburger Canada chain.
Other notable food court locations for the fast casual restaurant chain in fashionable shopping and lifestyle venues include Vancouver’s Waterfront Centre and Harbour Centre, and Bankers Hall in Calgary.
Corresponding with the chain’s focus on high quality ingredients, Fatburger’s design for the food court location features premium details like quartz countertops, reclaimed wood finishes, and colour glass accents. In keeping with the Fatburger tradition, this location features an open kitchen, allowing guests to order at the counter and view their meals being cooked. Convenient takeout service will also be available.
Guests may choose from a wide assortment of world-famous wings and tenders from the Buffalo’s Express menu that are tossed in a choice of 11 signature sauce creations, ranging from mild to extra spicy, including tantalizing options like Asian Sesame, Sweet Bourbon BBQ, Coconut Jerk, and Sriracha. They can even mix the signature sauces to create their own one-of-a-kind, flavorful wing experience, and enjoy them with salads, fries and other items.
Of course, delicious Fatburgers are made with fresh, never frozen, hand pressed, cooked-to-order AAA Canadian Alberta beef – the highest quality beef of any burger chain in Canada. Fatburgers can be enjoyed with all the usual condiments, plus many inspired choices such as chili, bacon, mushrooms, guacamole, jalapeños, an assortment of cheeses, and even a fried egg.
Fatburger accompaniments include fresh cooked, trans fat-free skin-on fries, yam fries, homemade onion rings and a Caesar salad. Only the freshest produce, including hand-cut lettuce, centre-cut beefsteak tomatoes and fresh-cut onions, qualifies to be served at Fatburger.
For hungrier patrons, there’s a one-half-pound Kingburger, a three-quarter-pound Double Fatburger, and the baddest burger on the block – the Triple Kingburger. This monster of a burger features three patties (a pound and a half) of hand-packed, specially seasoned Angus beef served on an artisan sesame seed bun with lettuce, deli dill pickles and your choice of four cheeses, plus tomato, onion, and any of our other popular toppings.

Other tasty options include lean sage and rosemary infused Turkeyburgers made exclusively for the chain that are served with real cranberry sauce, Veggieburgers custom-made for Fatburger with real vegetables, plus Cajun Chicken and Chicken Caesar entree salads, snack size greens and more.
There’s also an assortment of famous chicken sandwiches made with full-sized white meat chicken breasts, including a Classic Grilled Chicken Sandwich, a Crispy Chicken Filet, a Red Hot Buffalo Style Chicken Sandwich and a Cajun Chicken Cheddar Sandwich.
Fatburger is pleased to offer to “Lettuce Wrap Your Burger,” a gluten-free, low carb option for beef burgers and chicken sandwiches. Of course, we haven’t left the kids out either, offering them combos featuring a cheeseburger, hotdog, grilled cheese sandwich or chicken tenders that include fries and a choice of soda, milk or lemonade.
Ready for something sweet? Try the mini donuts frosted with sugar and cinnamon. To complement the chain’s “best anywhere” burger and other entrees are its “best anywhere” milkshakes made with real high butter fat, hand-scooped ice cream and available with real strawberries. In fact, Fatburger has six delicious flavors of shakes to choose from, plus a seasonal featured shake.
Guests can also order refreshing beers on tap by the glass or pint, plus bottled Corona & Heineken, along with frozen strawberry and lime-flavoured margaritas, and Smirnoff Ice and Mott’s Clamato Caesar cocktails.
With the opening of the food court location at West Edmonton Mall, there will be 46 Fatburger restaurants in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan, with several more to be opened during 2015.
