Guests can enjoy fresh cooked burgers; hand breaded chicken tenders & hearty breakfast!

Medicine Hat, AB, January 10, 2020 – Fatburger is pleased to announce the much anticipated opening of their 58th location. Fans of Fatburger’s award-winning burgers can now indulge their taste buds at Strachan Corner in Medicine Hat. The newest addition to the Fatburger family is owned by Franchisee Jaswin Vekaria. This is his sixth Fatburger location.

“We are pleased to serve great tasting Fatburger favourites with exceptional customer service,” said Jaswin. “Quality is our number one priority and guests can expect it when they visit Fatburger Medicine Hat.”

For 15 years, Fatburger has been one of Western Canada’s fastest-growing and most popular burger chains acclaimed for serving up award winning burgers, as well as Buffalo’s™ world-famous wings and tenders.

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 are veggie burgers custom-made exclusively for Fatburger, chicken sandwiches made with full-sized marinated chicken breasts, Buffalo’s™ World Famous Wings & Tenders, hearty breakfast and “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.
