Fatburger Debuts Vegan-Friendly Daiya Cheddar Style Slices Across LA

May 16, 2019

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2019--

FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc. (NASDAQ: FAT) (“FAT Brands” or the “Company”), parent company of Fatburger, The Last Great Hamburger Stand™, is pleased to announce nine select Los Angeles locations now carry vegan-friendly Daiya dairy-free Cheddar Style Slices. The cheddar-cheese-like, dairy-free slice acts as the perfect complement to Fatburger ’s wildly successful vegan-friendly Impossible Burger, or the time-tested, traditional beef Fatburger patty.

Each Daiya dairy-free Cheddar Style Slice delivers the same incredible melt and slight sharpness as dairy-based cheese. This flavor and texture pairs perfectly with Fatburger’s mouthwatering, juicy burger made famous by founder Lovie Yancey in Los Angeles more than 70 years ago. As always, each burger is made-to-order with traditional toppings, along with delicious add-ons including bacon, egg, chili, and onion rings.

“Our hometown Los Angeles Fatburger fans can now order a one-of-a-kind burger menu item - a 100 percent vegan-friendly cheeseburger,” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “As a longstanding LA brand, our team at Fatburger loves to bring together old Los Angeles traditions and today’s trends and values, and our new vegan offerings are a great example of that. We pride ourselves in being early adopters of innovative new menu items, and I anticipate the Daiya slice will do extremely well, just like our Impossible Burger.”
