Fatburger Canada provides innovative and engaging marketing support for all stores, both regionally and market-specific, with internal store programs, media buying, product features and Limited Time Offer’s, as well as value conscious promotions.
Features And Promotions
Our marketing team creates quarterly and yearly strategic plans for each market. These plans include food features that are researched to catch food trends and lead the burger tier in new flavour profiles. Typically, four or five features are run per year. Eye-catching graphics with mouth-watering food photography are produced for in-store placement that encourage guests to take part in the feature. These offers provide excitement for the returning guest, as well as capture new guests with trendy new tastes. Staff love the change in atmosphere and wear their themed uniform T’s with pride!
Our Operations team provides exceptional training guides for these features to ensure Fatburger Canada’s ongoing commitment to quality. Stores are encouraged to take part in seasonal holidays, supported with weekend or week-long offers (Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day, Canada Day, Halloween and Christmas, to name a few) and in store decorating contests.

The marketing team conducts ongoing surveys and market-research across the chain, constantly listening to our guests and our team members for feedback and ideas. New strategies and sales-building concepts are discussed weekly and applied to stores as needed.
Fatburger Canada Marketing is consistently brand-driven, taking new strategies and traditional media to new levels, executing great new food ideas and design-forward graphics in market-wide and store specific programs.
Local Store Marketing
At Fatburger, we pride ourselves on our significant commitment to providing support to the local communities and assistance to charitable organizations.We contribute with sponsorship advertisements, gift packages and giveaways.
As part of fun and hip culture, our restaurants celebrate milestones and accomplishments, such as: Grand Openings, Birthdays, Outstanding Guest Services, etc. For example, during a store opening, we will partner with a highly respectable and notable local organization, such as the “Boys & Girls Club” for the day and donate a $1 from every burger purchased to the club.
Fatburger is involved with community events; we do live radio feed and other on-site promotions to create brand awareness at our locations. Our guerilla marketing approach includes: hiring Street Team Brand Ambassadors and exposing them to the local community during events to generate the Fatburger buzz and awareness, participation in street-level events (local parades, etc), and volunteering at charity events.
