LOS ANGELES – FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc., parent company of Fatburger, The Last Great Hamburger Stand and Buffalo’s Express, will be opening its first location in Japan in April 2018. Tokyo’s Shibuya 109 building, steps away from the world’s busiest intersection – Shibuya Crossing – will be home to Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express restaurants and the company’s FatBar concept.
“When we open a new Fatburger or Buffalo’s Express location, especially a flagship in a new territory, we strive to find the most provocative, prominent locations possible,” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “In a buzzing city like Tokyo, it’s exciting to tap into a neighborhood like Shibuya that hums with thousands of visitors daily. Similar to our other Asian restaurants, we expect this will become a popular destination with tourists and locals alike for lunch, drinks and after-work meetups.”
