Prince George, BC, June 26, 2019 – For more than a decade, Fatburger
has been one of Canada’s fast-growing and most popular burger chains acclaimed
for serving up award winning burgers, as well as Buffalo’s™ world-famous wings
and tenders, and delicious breakfasts. And now Fatburger fans can now indulge
their taste buds at the second Prince George location at 3167 Massey Drive at
Pine Centre.

“We are delighted to open our second Fatburger in Prince George,” said
Frank Di Benedetto, CEO, president and owner of the FDF Restaurant Brandz
franchise system that includes the Fatburger Canada chain. “Pine Centre
continues to be the local mall of choice and this location is a wonderful compliment
to our original co-branded Fatburger on O’Grady Road.”

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 30-seat location will feature
an open kitchen, allowing guests to order at the counter and enjoy watching their
meals being cooked-to-order. Convenient takeout service will also be available.

What makes Fatburger so special? Premium ingredients. Each and every
burger starts with fresh, never frozen Alberta Angus beef. No additives, binders or
fillers. Only the freshest produce, including hand-shredded lettuce and award
winning centre-cut beefsteak tomatoes, qualify to be served on a Fatburger.

Fatburger’s inspired menu doesn’t stop there. Other delicious options
include chicken sandwiches made with full-sized marinated chicken breasts,
veggie burgers custom-made exclusively for Fatburger, and Buffalo’s™ World
Famous Wings and Tenders. For those seeking a low-carb, gluten friendly treat,
Fatburger offers the option to “Lettuce Wrap” your burger or sandwich.

To complement the chain’s burger selections and other entrees are its “best
anywhere” milkshakes made with premium, hand-scooped ice cream. In fact,
Fatburger has six delicious shake flavours to choose from, plus a seasonal feature
flavour.

Pine Centre is the second Fatburger in Prince George and the 55th
Fatburger restaurant in Canada, with locations in British Columbia, Alberta,
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories. Fatburger Canada is
Canadian owned and operated and is proud to serve Canadian ingredients.
