Fatburger Franchise

Quick service hamburger restaurant.

The now famous Fatburger Restaurant had humble beginnings many years ago in the spotless kitchen of Ms. Lovie Yancey. Her guests enjoyed her hamburgers so much that she was encouraged to share her unique recipe with the world. Ms. Yancey took their advice and opened her first restaurant in Los Angeles, in 1952. She called this restaurant "Fatburger," while her loyal customers called it, "The Last Great Hamburger Stand." Now, over 60 years later, the red and yellow sign still holds the same promise. A promise to serve customers a great hamburger prepared fresh daily at every location. Customers will never find a frozen or prefabricated Fatburger in our restaurants.

At Fatburger, we are proud to say that word of mouth has filled our restaurants for over 60 years. Demographically, our appeal is limitless. Our customers come from every walk of life, mirroring the diversity of every community in which we are located. Teenagers, families with young children, singles, senior citizens, and people from all income levels, and ethnic backgrounds love a great burger. They tell their friends and associates about the superb homemade taste, spotless surroundings, friendly atmosphere and courteous service that they experience at Fatburger Restaurants
