FAT Brands INFO
What is FAT Brands?
FAT Brands, Inc operates as a leading global franchising company that strategically acquires, markets, and develops fast casual, quick-service, casual dining, and polished casual dining concepts around the world. The Company currently owns 17 restaurant brands: Round Table Pizza, Fatburger, Marble Slab Creamery, Johnny Rockets, Fazoli’s, Twin Peaks, Great American Cookies, Hot Dog on a Stick, Buffalo’s Cafe & Express, Hurricane Grill & Wings, Pretzelmaker, Elevation Burger, Native Grill & Wings, and Ponderosa and Bonanza Steakhouses.
What Makes FAT Brands Unique?
By incorporating the existing management teams of the thriving franchise brands it acquires, FAT Brands has developed one of the strongest leadership teams in franchising. If a franchisee or employee at any of the franchisor's brands runs into a challenge, FAT Brands has a leader who knows exactly how to address it.
In 2021 alone, FAT Brands sold over 300 franchise units across its system, and that growth is continuing at a rapid pace, despite the various challenges facing the foodservice industry at large. While other brands are struggling to contend with labor shortages and supply chain crises, FAT Brands has leveraged its immense purchasing power, marketing muscle, and relationships with distributors and vendors to help franchise owners thrive and grow.
And because FAT Brands’ portfolio of franchise brands offers complementary development opportunities, franchise owners can seamlessly grow their own portfolio without having to branch into new markets when their territory maxes out for a specific brand.
FAT Brands is built to attract savvy entrepreneurs who know the value of opening a small business backed by a global powerhouse. Thanks to FAT Brands’ proven operational models and unmatched support from industry leading executives and resources across multiple brand platforms, extensive restaurant experience is not a prerequisite for ownership depending on the brand. Franchise owners with FAT Brands must be business savvy, passionate and know how to execute on a proven playbook.
Since its founding, FAT Brands has acquired a diverse and complementary portfolio of foodservice brands across the fast-casual, quick-service, casual dining and polished casual dining segments, making it one of the strongest franchisors in the industry. Today, FAT Brands boasts $600 million in purchasing power and is set to have over $2.2 billion in sales in 2022. Now, the franchisor is shifting its focus from acquiring brands to supporting organic growth within its existing franchise network, meaning franchise owners have a tremendous opportunity to rapidly grow with the backing of a global powerhouse with resources and support unmatched by traditional franchise models.
How Much Does it Cost?
