Guests can now enjoy fresh cooked burgers, breakfast, wings and many other tasty options

Abbotsford, BC, August 13, 2019 – Fatburger announces the opening of its newest location at 2047 Sumas Way, Abbotsford, BC. Fans of Fatburger’s award-winning burgers can now indulge their taste buds at the second Abbotsford location in the community and the 56th Canada-wide. The restaurant is strategically located at the busy hub of Sumas Way and Marshall Road.

“We are delighted with the positive response that we’ve been receiving from our guests in Abbotsford”, said Frank Di Benedetto, CEO, president, and owner of the FDF Restaurant Brandz franchise system that includes the Fatburger Canada chain. He added “Our brand philosophy hasn’t changed over time. Quality is our number one priority and guests can expect it from Fatburger Sumas.”

Fatburger has grown rapidly in Canada and is well-known for serving up fresh and juicy burgers, as well as Buffalo’s™ world-famous chicken tenders, and delicious breakfast.

What makes Fatburger so special? Premium ingredients. Each and every burger starts with fresh, never frozen Alberta Angus beef. No additives, binders or fillers. Only the freshest produce, including hand-shredded lettuce and award-winning centre-cut beefsteak tomatoes, qualify to be served on a Fatburger.

Fatburger traces its roots back to the 1950s in Los Angeles when the word fat meant cool or hip, but the size of burgers led to the distinctive name. “The name of the store was my idea. I wanted to get across the idea of a big burger with everything on it . . . a meal in itself,” said Fatburger founder Lovie Yancey.

Fatburger offers a wide selection of items on its menu for diverse tastes. To complement the chain’s burger selections and other entrees are veggie burgers custom-made exclusively for Fatburger, chicken sandwiches made with full-sized marinated chicken breasts, Buffalo’s™ World Famous Tenders, and its “best anywhere” milkshakes made with premium, hand-scooped ice cream. For those seeking a low-carb, gluten friendly treat, Fatburger offers the option to “Lettuce Wrap” your burger or sandwich.



About Fatburger Canada: In 1947 Lovie Yancey founded Fatburger under its original name Mr. Fatburger. In 1952, Yancey shed both her business partners and the “Mr.” from the name of the hamburger stand, and Fatburger was officially born. From the beginning, Yancey was a fixture at the original Fatburger, where customers, who included entertainers such as Redd Foxx and Ray Charles, could custom-order their burgers.

In 2005, the first Fatburger Canada opened in the popular English Bay area of Vancouver, BC. And while our roots are from California, Fatburger in Canada is Canadian owned and operated – and proud of it! The company is actively seeking new franchisees across Canada.
