Edmonton Celebrates Newest Fatburger Location

Enjoy Buffalo’s™ World Famous wings, tenders, and tasty breakfast, too

EDMONTON, AB, November 23, 2017 – Edmonton’s newest Fatburger restaurant is set to open this weekend at 11525 104th Avenue NW conveniently near the Ice District, the city’s $2.5 billion mixed-use sports and entertainment destination now in development.

The approximately 2,000-square-foot, freestanding restaurant is the eighth Edmonton location for Fatburger, which for more than a decade continues to be one of Canada’s fast-growing and most popular burger chains.

“We have been very pleased with the strong, positive response we have received in Edmonton from guests who appreciate high quality and great value when they dine out with us,” said Frank Di Benedetto, CEO, president and owner of the FDF Restaurant Brandz franchise system that includes the Fatburger Canada chain. Fatburger traces its roots back to the 1950s in Los Angeles when the word fat meant cool or hip.

The new 48-seat restaurant will be serving delicious choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week.  Start your day with a hearty breakfast with combinations of eggs, home-style hash browns, maple bacon, breakfast sausage and fluffy buttermilk pancakes sized to suit every appetite, and enjoy breakfast sandwiches served on buttered brioche buns available all day.

Each and every burger is made with fresh, never frozen, hand-pressed Alberta Angus beef — with no additives, binders or fillers. Fatburgers can be enjoyed with all the usual condiments, plus many inspired choices such as chili, maple bacon, mushrooms, guacamole, pineapple, jalapenos, an assortment of cheeses, and even a fried egg. Only the freshest produce, including hand-cut lettuce and award winning centre-cut beefsteak tomatoes, qualify to be served on a Fatburger.

For hungrier patrons, there’s a half-pound Kingburger, a three-quarter pound Double Fatburger, and the baddest burger on the block – the Triple Kingburger. This monster of a burger features three half-pound patties of Angus beef served on an artisan sesame seed bun with lettuce, pickles and your choice of cheese, plus tomato, onion and any of Fatburger’s other complimentary tasty toppings.

But there’s more on the menu than burgers. Delicious options include lean sage and rosemary infused turkey burgers, and custom-made veggie burgers, both made exclusively for Fatburger. There’s an assortment of chicken sandwiches made with full-sized marinated chicken breasts.  Fatburger also offers “Lettuce Wrap your Burger,” a gluten free, low-carb option for beef burgers and chicken sandwiches.

In the mood for chicken? Fatburger is proud to serve Buffalo’s™ World Famous Wings and Tenders.  The big, juicy chicken wings are fried to perfection and coated with your choice of signature sauce. The chicken tenders are made-to-order using plump and juicy chicken tenderloin, lightly battered, hand breaded and fried to perfection.

Of course, they haven’t left the kids out either, offering them combos featuring a cheeseburger, hotdog, grilled cheese sandwich or chicken tenders that include fries and a choice of soda, milk or lemonade.

Ready for something sweet?  Try the mini donuts dusted with sugar and cinnamon and served with caramel sauce for dipping.  To complement the chain’s premium burger selections and other entrees are its “best anywhere” milkshakes made with real high butter fat, hand-scooped ice cream.  In fact, Fatburger has six

There are more than 50 Fatburger restaurants in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the Northwest Territories.
