Fuddruckers Revs Up Its Partnership With TravelCenters Of America; Fast Casual Favorite To Roll Into Sparks, Nevada On January 16
Fuddruckers and TravelCenters of America are gearing up for their third restaurant opening as a result of a franchise partnership inked earlier last year. A new home for the “World’s Greatest Hamburgers” is slated to open within a popular truck stop, casino and convenience center at 200 N McCarran in Sparks, Nevada on Monday, January 16. The duo of established brands debuted similar operations in Commerce, GA in February and Ashland, VA in May.
Located off Interstate 80 just east of Reno, the Sparks fast casual restaurant will feature décor that references Fuddruckers’ classic, Americana origins. Table and lounge seating for approximately 100 guests will offer a welcoming and comfortable spot to recharge, while refueling on an array of delicious offerings from the acclaimed Texas-based chain. The hours of operation will be 10:30 am until 11:00 pm daily.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer of Luby’s, Inc., “With nearly 80 years of combined experience behind our companies, we’re thrilled to further enhance the drive across town or the country through this exciting partnership that brings a flavorful fill up to the I-80 corridor.”
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.
