Fuddruckers will open its third Colombian franchise this month, the Houston-based burger restaurant chain announced.
Through an agreement with Grupo Char — the franchisee that has opened two Fuddruckers in Colombia during the past year — a 3,300-square-foot restaurant will open Thursday in Plaza Central mall in the capital, Bogotá.
Fuddruckers is in the family of eateries owned by Luby’s Inc. of Houston. In recent years, Fuddruckers franchises have flourished outside the U.S. Most recently, the burger chain has opened franchises in the Dominican Republic, Italy and Mexico.
In all, Luby’s has more than 110 Fuddruckers franchises in the U.S. and six other countries.
Fuddruckers To Unveil Its Third Fast Casual Restaurant In Colombia At Bogota’s New Plaza Central Mall With Franchise Partner Grupo Char’s
Fuddruckers, a world famous restaurant brand from Texas, and South American franchisee Grupo Char’s are nearing the completion of their third fast casual restaurant in Bogota, Colombia. Slated to open on October 27, the approximately 3,300-square-foot eatery will be located in the premier, new Plaza Centralmall, one of the largest shopping centers in the country, encompassing more than 800,000 square feet with 2,680 parking spaces, over 330 retail spaces, eight movie theaters, a supermarket, department stores and numerous sustainable features. Accessible via three main avenues – Ave. 68, Calle 13 (Ave. Centenario) and Ave. Americas – Fuddruckers will also enjoy a prime spot on the mall’s restaurant terrace.
Fuddruckers and Grupo Char’s introduced Fuddruckers to Colombia one year ago with a restaurant in the bustling Pepe Sierra area of Bogota.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer of Luby’s, Inc., “We are proud to bring juicy, tasty, delicious burgers to another prime spot in Bogota, which has quickly embraced our dynamic dining experience, ideal for a gathering of friends and family, business lunch or date night. Grupo Char is an exceptional partner to grow our footprint in South America.”
Since 1980, Fuddruckers has been obsessed with making the world happier, one great hamburger at a time. Grilled-to-order burgers feature always fresh and never frozen, 100% USDA premium-cut beef with no fillers or additives. Delicious, sesame-topped buns are baked from scratch on-site throughout the day to achieve the perfect combination of crisp crust and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
And while burgers are the signature, the engaging menu offers variety for many tastes with an array of sandwiches, platters and salads. No matter what they choose, customers can customize their meal with a trip to the legendary Build Your Own produce bar, which features fantastic fixings like sun-ripened tomatoes, lettuce, sliced onions, dill pickles, pico de gallo and classic cheese sauce.
