Philippines, Here We Come!

Morning Metro Manila

I am proud to say that Fatburger and Buffalo’s Cafe are officially coming to the Philippines! We signed a master development agreement with Trimark Holdings Inc., a retail operator throughout the Philippines with a portfolio of more than 40 brands and 300 stores. Because the economy in the Philippines has seen significant growth in the past few years, this shows a great amount of potential for both of our restaurants. Due to Trimark Holdings being so familiar with brand expansion in the country, we will be able to better connect with our audience resulting in our menu being well received.

Next time you’re vacationing, take a trip to the Philippines and stop by a Fatburger or Buffalo’s Cafe!

Late Night Eats

Fatburger

Say goodbye to late night cravings! UberEATS is rounding out #EATSWEEK by offering Fatburger during those late night hours from 12am to 3am in Los Angeles. The promotion runs from Thursday, October 15th to Sunday, October 18th, so you won’t want to miss out! It’s a short promotion, but an influx of orders this weekend can increase the chances of it coming and staying in LA for good! And if you’ve never used UberEats before you can use the code LATENIGHTLA for $10 off! Such a great deal!

Hope you all enjoy your late night Fatburger! I know I will!

Looks like it’s that time of the year again when the weather gets a little cooler and pumpkins start sprouting everywhere. It’s one of favorite seasons, and I’m so glad to announce some of Fatburger’s Limited Time Offers. In the mix are Sweet Potato Fries and a mouthwatering Mushroom Swiss Fatburger. And it wouldn’t be fall without a Pumpkin Pie Milkshake!

Don’t forget these are only available for a LIMITED TIME. Dash over to your nearest Fatburger for one or ALL of these tasty treats!

Supporting the Police Force

I’m so proud to say that the Fatburger location at 3763 Las Vegas Boulevard is offering free meals (burger, fries and drink) to our local officers this weekend on Sept. 19 and 20. This is Fatburger’s way of thanking those saving our lives during these hard times throughout our beloved country.

“These officers are out there every day putting themselves in harm’s way to protect us and it has never been more evident than in today’s world that they need to be shown some appreciation.” says owner, Darin Feinstein.

I completely agree with Darin! Always remember to show your support and love to those who keep us safe in our own home towns! How are you supporting your local officers?

Robots in our Restaurants?

11349391_1689084011311253_762246281_n

No, we are not hiring robots to take over employees at Fatburger. But apparently, this is something that is happening worldwide! We are, however, testing tablet systems at our Buffalo’s Cafe locations. I think that tablets have a place at the table, but it’s pretty hard to ask questions, get suggestions from a tablet. I don’t think they replace a server, they make a server more efficient. We’re selling hamburgers shakes and fries, and customers want to talk to somebody and say, ‘Here’s how I want it.’ So I think in the hospitality industry, to assume that technology will take the place of workers is a false assumption. So don’t worry, we’re not hiring robots just yet!

Balancing Work and Life

&MaxW=640&imageVersion=default&AR-150709074

Being an entrepreneur with six kids can be a challenge, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything! Maintaining a work-life balance is definitely not an easy task, especially with 3 of my kids in business with me, but I have a few tips for anyone needing to balance their personal life and work life.

  1. Keep active! I exercise whenever I get a free moment. Some of my favorite workouts include running or something cardio related.
  2. Spend time with your family. I get to see my older children all the time at work, so it’s not so pressing to spend time with them over the weekend. I love taking my younger kids to the movies, a restaurant, or even just to hang out.
  3. Take it one step at a time. For me it’s always been to try to hit singles and doubles, and the home runs come on their own. Just try to get the logical next step and be prepared to pivot in the right direction to go from first base to second or third.
  4. Don’t talk about work every hour of every day. I’m in the office for 11 to 12 hours, but then I try to have some time with my friends and family for a meal or drinks, or just try to talk about something other than work. It’s important to get out of work mode even if it’s for only a few hours.

I love work, and I tend to go overboard when it comes to my work hours, but I will always be sure to make my family and friends a priority. Be sure to keep a good balance in your life!

Over 60 Years of Deliciousness

Fatburger

At Fatburger, we are proud to say that we’ve been doing things our own way since 1952. Because we make custom burgers one at a time, there a few things you will notice at every Fatburger. Every burger is grilled when you order it. We use only 100% USDA lean beef that is always fresh and never frozen. Our onion rings come from onions, not the freezer. Both our onion rings and fries are cooked in 100% cholesterol-free oil. Our shakes are made with real hand-scooped ice cream. Our famous chili is made with a secret blend of herbs and spices, so this means no generic burgers. Lastly, we pride ourselves in never having lame music!

I am proud to say that Fatburger has and always will be the same that it was 60 years ago. Cheers to 60 more years!

It’s Grilling Time!

It’s summer time which means it’s time for BBQs and tons of time spent outside by the pool. This doesn’t mean that you can’t have a Fatburger! Our Fatburger patties are available at stores around the nation, which means you can customize our world famous burger any way you want. I like topping off my Fatburger with a fried egg! Our Fatburger patties are made for barbecuing, so serve them at your next backyard bash!

Happy grilling!

Happy Hour at Fatburger

I love celebrating good times! Whether it be a birthday or getting through this work week, there’s a lot to celebrate! Why not do it with some Tito’s Vodka at Fatburger?

Adding Tito’s Vodka to your happy hour routine will ensure a good night! Try this Tito’s Texas Mule at our Koreatown Fatburger location. I love sharing in the celebration, but please remember to not share with those under the legal purchase age of alcohol. Cheers!
