FAT Brands Inc., parent company of Fatburger and eight other restaurant concepts, is planting a flag in France via a multi-unit development deal with BGH Investments, SARL. The deal includes opening two Paris locations within the next 18 months.
"Fatburger has been widely successful internationally over the years so it was only a matter of time before we entered France," FAT Brands CEO Andy Wiederhorn, said in a company press release. "American fare continues to perform well abroad and we look forward to bringing our iconic brand experience to the heart of France, Paris, providing our food offerings to locals and tourists alike."
Franchising over 675 units worldwide, Los Angeles-based FAT Brands owns Johnny Rockets, Buffalo's Cafe, Buffalo's Express, Hurricane Grill & Wings, Elevation Burger, Yalla Mediterranean and Ponderosa and Bonanza Steakhouses.
