Newark, DE – December 11, 2014 – A 6,430-square-foot Fuddruckers fast casual restaurant opens in Newark, Delaware. Luby's, Inc. operates the site, which is located at 40 Geoffrey Drive, just off Churchmans Road and in close proximity to Center Pointe Plaza and Delaware Technical Community College. The newly remodeled restaurant is the first Fuddruckers in the state.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer of Luby's, Inc., "We are thrilled to introduce Fuddruckers to Delaware and believe that the family-oriented demographics of Newark make it a perfect place for this delicious brand. We are introducing a fun and friendly gathering place in keeping with the needs of the community." A dynamic design scheme, which references Fuddruckers' classic, Americana origins, sets an inviting backdrop for a family gathering, work lunch or date night. The interior accommodates 194 guests, and there is seating available for 40 on a covered patio. An existing bar was removed to expand the dining area.
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.
