Fatburger Comes to Regina’s Reimagined Golden Mile Shopping Centre

Enjoy Breakfast and Buffalo’s™ World Famous Wings and Tenders, too

REGINA, SK, May 9, 2018 – Fans of big, juicy, tasty Fatburgers with all the fixings can now indulge their taste buds as the latest edition of the popular burger chain has opened in Regina’s Golden Mile Shopping Centre. The reimagined centre is the gateway to the city’s vibrant south end and commercial district.

Located in Regina’s well-known Golden Mile shopping node on South Albert Street, the centre is anchored by a Real Canadian Superstore and a Shoppers Drug Mart. More than $30 million has been invested in upgrades to the centre.

For more than a decade, Fatburger has been one of Canada’s fast-growing and most popular burger chains acclaimed for serving up some of Canada’s biggest and juiciest burgers, as well as Buffalo’s™ world-famous wings and tenders and delicious breakfasts in many locations.

“We are delighted with the positive response Fatburger has received in Regina and look forward to serving guests at our new Golden Mile location under the direction of franchisee Mark Bologna and his partners,” 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, 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.

In keeping with the Fatburger tradition, the new 46-seat location will feature an open kitchen, allowing guests to order at the counter and enjoy watching their meals being cooked, along with up-to-the-minute technology like flat screen TVs and a roaring sound system. Convenient takeout service will also be available.

Opening at 7 AM, the new restaurant is serving delicious choices for breakfast, then lunch and dinner seven days a week.  Start your day with a hearty breakfast special featuring 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 delicious flavors of shakes to choose from, plus a seasonal feature flavour.

Guests can also order refreshing Rebellion beer on tap by the glass or pint, plus a selection of bottled beer, along with frozen strawberry and lime-flavoured margaritas, and Smirnoff Ice and Mott’s Clamato Caesar cocktails.

Golden Mile is the second Fatburger in Regina and the 55th Fatburger restaurant in Canada, with locations in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and the Northwest Territories, in addition to Saskatchewan.
