The Contra Costa Times Covers our Livermore Opening

It appears our newest bay area location is making news.

The Contra Costa Times is talking about our new Livermore, CA Fatburger location which opened about a month ago.

Popular made-to-order burger chain Fatburger has made a re-entry into the Northern California market with the opening of a new location in Livermore.

Situated inside a Chevron at 1025 N. Vasco Rd., the store is the 62-year-old company’s only franchise in the region and only the second Fatburger to share space with a gas station. The other is in Baker.

Company officials are considering it their official foray into the region. A Fatburger in Pleasant Hill — co-owned by rapper E-40 and former Oakland Raider Chester McClockton — closed in 2008.

The Livermore Fatburger opened its doors March 10 with 12 employees. Headquartered in Beverly Hills, Fatburger has 150 locations in 32 countries. A San Jose location is scheduled to open in April.

We also have a San Jose, CA location opening this month. Stay tuned!

Fatburger to Open its First Gas Station Location

First, we offered co-branded Buffalo’s Cafe and Fatburger restaurants. But today, we’re doing something totally different: a Fatburger co-located with a gas station. It’s all happening in Livermore, CA, in Northern California. This will be our first co-location of this nature, but rest assured, it’s going to be the full Fatburger experience.

Here’s what I had to say on the topic to CSP Magazine (Convenience Store and Fuel News):

Through our opening in Livermore, we hope to provide an easy, accessible way for the community to grab their burgers on the go. Expanding into areas where there are currently no stores is part of the daily commitment we make to all Fatburger fans. We look forward to re-establishing ourselves in the Northern California market.”

If you’re in the bay area, get ready, our cooked-to-order burgers are coming soon.
