The now famous Fatburger Restaurant actually had humble beginnings many years ago in the spotless kitchen of Ms. Lovie Yancey.
Her guests enjoyed her hamburgers so much that she was encouraged to share her unique recipe with the world. Ms. Yancey
took their advice and opened her first restaurant in Los Angeles, in 1952. She called her restaurant "Fatburger." Her loyal
customers called it, "The Last Great Hamburger Stand." Now, sixty years later, the red and yellow sign still holds
the same promise as it did then. A promise to serve you a great homemade hamburger prepared fresh daily at every location.
You will never find a frozen or prefabricated Fatburger. Yet, in these health-conscious times, why call it a Fatburger?
Fatburger is a big, hearty, juicy, gourmet hamburger that uses fresh, 100% pure lean beef. Interestingly, a local NBC News
program conducted an independent test in 1990 to determine the fat content of the hamburgers prepared by the major chains
in Los Angeles. They found that Fatburger served the leanest hamburger of them all. The demand for this incredible burger
was such that in 1980, Ms. Yancey decided to offer Fatburger franchise opportunities. In 1990, with the goal of expanding
Fatburger throughout the world, the Fatburger Corporation purchased the business from Ms. Yancey. Today, Fatburger has grown
to a worldwide restaurant chain.
Fatburger has become a familiar presence in Southern California. Currently, Fatburger has over 100 locations worldwide.
In addition to our California roots, Fatburger has expanded to AZ, FL, GA, IL, MD, MI, NE, NV, NJ, OH, & WA. Internationally,
Fatburger has expanded to Asia, Canada, and the Middle East.
