LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 28, 2019--FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc. (NASDAQ: FAT) (“FAT Brands” or the “Company”), parent company of Fatburger, The Last Great Hamburger Stand™, announces the development of six new co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express restaurants throughout Shanghai with Bloomfield Pty.

Markets such as Shanghai, where demand and crowds are large, magnifies this need even more,” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “We’re thrilled to open more restaurants with the Bloomfield team. They’ve done an excellent job maintaining the integrity of our brand while providing a deep understanding of the Chinese consumer.”
